How do the ABL Round Tables work?
First and foremost, ABL’s Members are committed to furthering their own and their fellow Members, personal and professional growth. The monthly morning Round Tables are comprised of a carefully selected group of 12-18 C-level executives in healthcare or technology. Each Round Table is composed of Members in the same industry, who are complementary to each other, rather than competitive.
While the structure remains the same, the subject matter and discussions change every month, yet they are always centered on the themes of business strategy, vicarious learning, or major industry trends. No two sessions are exactly the same, with each session offering an opportunity to tackle new problems and learn the latest strategies to accelerate your business growth. ABL Members naturally develop deep working relationships with each other, thus calendaring as many Round Tables their busy travel schedules will allow them to attend.
During each Round Table, your Facilitator will work with the group through three distinctive sections: a “discussion theme,” followed by “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?” – an opportunity to get feedback on your hottest issues, and finally the Featured Member Advisory Board Presentation, or Topical Guest Speaker. These are real-time business case studies that give everyone in the room an opportunity for organizational growth. The Advisory Board presentation dives into current goals and concerns facing the Member, giving the Table an opportunity to discuss, provide insight, and work through the issues presented. The result is that every Member willingly shares his or her expertise, industry knowledge, and experience to help shorten each other’s learning curves and avoid potential costly mistakes.
Members experience full value and a solid return on their investment of time and fees when attending Round Tables on a regular basis. They are able to stay abreast of industry trends that affect their business and keep ahead of the curve in their rapidly changing industry.
