CEO Growth Talks(TM) Breakfast Helps CEOs Turn Their Competitive Advantage into Profits

ISELIN, N.J., Sept. 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CEOs and business leaders have the opportunity to join their peers in an interactive session designed to provide insights that can turn a competitive advantage into profit. Presented by Chief Outsiders, the leading provider of outsourced Chief Marketing Officers (CMO) on a part-time basis, and Vistage Worldwide, a global organization which assembles and facilitates private advisory boards for CEOs, senior executives and business owners, the event will be held September 29, at the Hotel Woodbridge at Metropark in Iselin, NJ, with breakfast beginning at 7:30 AM.

“This forum is ideal for CEOs and business leaders to share experiences and learn from each other,” states Slade Kobran, Northeast Managing Partner at Chief Outsiders. “In the course of a few hours, participants will learn what they can do to set themselves apart from the competition and build a powerful brand.”

“We know from our extensive interaction with more than 19,000 business executives around the world that CEOs learn best and achieve the most value through an interactive exchange of ideas and experiences with their peers,” said Roger Miller, one of four NJ-based Vistage Chairs participating in the breakfast session. “The presentations and facilitated discussions at the breakfast will allow participants to learn directly from the experiences of their peers in addition to Chief Outsiders and Vistage subject matter experts.”

This is the second in a series of CEO Growth Talks created by Chief Outsiders and Vistage Worldwide, intended exclusively for CEOs, business owners, and executives in the NJ metro area. The first event, held in June 2015, focused on sales and go-to-market strategies and received an overwhelmingly positive review from attendees.

About Chief Outsiders

Chief Outsiders, LLC, an “Executives-as-a-Service” firm, helps grow mid-sized companies from coast-to-coast with more than 40 part-time, or fractional, Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) who have held positions of VP Marketing or higher at one or more operating companies. These individuals’ breadth of experience makes it possible for Chief Outsiders to put the right skill set on a leadership team of any company for a fraction of the cost of a full time executive. Unlike other strategic marketing and management consulting firms, Chief Outsiders works with company leadership teams to develop and implement market based growth plans. Chief Outsiders believes delivering a world-class marketing strategy on its own creates little value and that the real value is created by helping the organization implement the growth vision.

Because of its market based growth plans, leadership and experienced team, Chief Outsiders was recently listed by Inc Magazine as one of the 1,000 fastest growing privately held companies in the US (in the top 25 in Houston) and recognized for the Houston Business Journal’s Fast 100.
