CEO round-tables - not your regular event

Leaders in Australian business often find difficulties in finding like-minded, non-threatening environments to share thoughts, ideas, challenges and contacts. Business Essentials has changed all of that for CEO’s and leaders who are either in existing contracts and are looking to become better and build out their resume or who are now out of contract and are looking to manage transition into the next one.

Business Essentials has developed two distinct groups for executives, leaders, thought leaders and CEO’s from all walks of life. The simple idea is to provide a safe working partnership with the men and women of Australia who are in one of these groups.

Business Essentials – through its owner – Geoff McDonnell and his partner in this venture – the highly regarded former CEO of the CEO Institute – Barry Westhorpe, have developed out these models to facilitate regular events, provide services & create environments for Australian business leaders to benefit from each other and the significant opportunities that exist in the new economy of Australia, the Asian region and the global market.
