ABOUT THE PROGRAM
ORIGINAL CEO LEADERSHIP
Afternoons are spent at selected arts and athletic activities. Hands-on leadership experience is gained as CEO participants co-instruct and teach a lesson on their own. The final assignment is a cumulative portfolio that summarizes key leadership observations and learning.
Afternoons are spent co-instructing one of our many Arts activities, from traditional arts & crafts to fine arts, digital photography, video production, radio broadcasting, culinary, guitar or even pottery. CEOs will also have time to refine their own art and receive instruction from industry professionals. The final assignment is a cumulative portfolio that combines leadership learning and selected art pieces that were created throughout the program.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE LEADERSHIP
Afternoons are spent co-instructing the API program, fitness, or other sport- specific activities. Participants in this stream will train with an API instructor, enhancing their personal fitness levels. The final assignment will be a cumulative portfolio that includes leadership learning and a comprehensive fitness plan.
THE CEO LODGE
In 2018, we built a state-of-the-art accommodation, meeting room and facilitation space for YOU – our CEOs!
Each day, CEOs meet in the Leadership Studio, a building designed specifically to inspire and train young leaders. Part artist’s loft, part monastic retreat and part family cottage, this 4,000 square-foot, purpose-built space sits on the glistening shores of Lake Rosseau. Combining one-of-a-kind, hands-on learning with unparalleled outdoor amenities, the Leadership Studio offers a unique personal development experience for our CEOs.

Over March Break, we take a team of CEOs to New Orleans. Last year, CEOs had the opportunity to run a daily program at a Kids Club, aid in yard clean up, build a ramp for a neighbour who could not enter her home, visit the elderly in a nursing home and serve the homeless. The CEOs were able to take on a new challenge, gain memorable experiences and seize an opportunity to help shape their world.
