“I’ve found the Board of CEOs to be extremely helpful for my business. As a CEO, it provides a forum for discussing my current major issues with my peers and the Principals of Board of CEO’s. The feedback is honest, direct, and insightful. Topics run the gamut from business strategy, marketing tactics, pricing and product lines, sales strategy and tactics, how to hire the right people or whether/how to fire the wrong ones.”

"Thomas is an excellent coach and a great "networker" on the top of the pyramid, the CEO level. I joined his group where CEOs share challenges they can't discuss in other forums. The outside view and suggestions from Thomas are priceless. Even with my 15 years CEO experience - every meeting with Thomas is of great value."

WHAT IS BOARD OF CEO?

The mission of Board of CEOs is to provide a platform consisting of peer CEOs who can advise and assist based on real life experiences to benefit the CEOs at the meetings.

Entrepreneurs who are first-time CEOs benefit greatly from these group discussions. When business issues are presented, the peer CEOs can sometimes provide very effective advice based on their experiences with similar issues they had managed.

Board of CEOS (BoC) was founded by Thomas Hong with fellow business associates who are all former hi-tech CEOs in Silicon Valley.

 

Note: Due to COVID-19 physical business meetings were not prohibited starting in early 2020. The business model of physical meetings previously provided by Board of CEOs became not viable in 2020. Thomas Hong created a new platform:
Startup-mentors to provide valuable business advice and assistance to CEOs of startups and early stage companies.

Overview

Board of CEOS (BoC) was founded by Thomas Hong and is an outgrowth of CEONetworking that Thomas initially founded.
