Raven CEO Roundtables
Raven CEO Roundtables are comprised of 8 to 10 business owners who meet once a month. These confidential, three-hour meetings serve as an informal advisory/accountability board for the members. Among the issues discussed are people, finances, marketing/sales, strategy and balance.
Business owners move their businesses forward using a tool called the Strategic MAP.
Are you achieving your goals? Business owners spend most of their time working IN the business instead of ON the business. Businesses that thrive are a result of carefully planning and executing strategically.
Each CEO prepares an annual confidential Strategic MAP and presents it to the members of their roundtable. This proprietary tool provides direction for the member’s business as well as their personal life. The MAP outline is easy to follow and creates valuable results.
MAP features three segments:
M — Mining your Past. Identify the strengths and challenges of your past to help understand the present.
A — Assessing your Present. Reveal your current life, your strengths and your needs.
P — Planning your Future. Use your historic strengths combined with your present life to develop a plan for a more rewarding future.
Studying your past helps you assess your current life and plan your future to live your newly envisioned life.
We provide up-to-date relevant workshops for business owners and their teams. Workshops are by invitation only and free to members.
I anticipate getting some accountability from the group which will make me more productive and pro-active in getting accounts.
Owner, No Employees, 1 Year Member
It has certainly helped with focusing on strategic vision, if it helps in finding the better/best path/road to the end of the journey, that’s worth a lot in my book.

Listening and taking the advice of my peers in my roundtable helped me understand the profit margins on different services and better align my pricing!

The most valuable thing I get from my Raven Membership; First, the map process. Secondly, I appreciate having the ability to chat through the things I am contemplating.

My Roundtable membership allows me time to get out of the office to plan and set goals. Makes me be more accountable to the things I need to do and get done.

CEO, 50+ Employees, 3 year member
I value the candid opinions, suggestions, and viewpoints of other members; and the accountability piece of committing to action.
Perspective – sometimes, when one is in the thick of things, it’s difficult to see the obvious. Members help with thinking outside the box.
I received invaluable advice on how to appropriately handle a situation involving a worker and worker’s compensation litigation – obviously saving additional legal fees for consultation!
CEO/Owner, 50+ Employees, 10+ year member
The road is easier together. It’s a valuable opportunity to speak to peers who have the same type skin in the game as the decisions and problems I face. I have become a better leader which has indirectly benefited my business financially as well.

Brainstorming with and the support of fellow women business owners has been the most valuable part of my Raven Mastermind membership.
Owner, No Employees, Less than a year Member
It’s very valuable to me to hear the other members experience and challenges that they are having in their own businesses. It’s valuable “been there, done that” kind of advice I receive and nice to know I am not alone. I have learned to delegate more and am becoming a more well rounded person.
Co-Owner, 100+ Employees, 2 year Member
My Raven Mastermind Group helps me set goals and work towards them and my peers in the group hold me accountable to those goals. It’s gratifying to see measurable and noticeable improvement in myself, my business and the other members.
