Business Owner’s Sounding Board


Program produced by XPX Fairfield County and XPX Hartford.

Being a CEO or owner can be a lonely role. This is especially true when facing big strategic decisions such as how to take their business to the next level, or when and how to prepare for a future exit. Having access to individuals outside the day-to-day business who can listen, counsel, challenge, and hold the leader accountable can make an enormous impact on the quality of the decisions and the ultimate execution of the steps necessary for success.  Join us in a conversation with Brad Scheller, Founder PivotPoint Leaders and Leslie McIntyre-Tavella, Culpeo HR as we explore approaches to, and the benefits of having a sounding board for the boss.
