“Technology and culture are changing so fast I feel nearly everything I learned for my MBA is now obsolete. The Outthinker Network is the best way I have found to stay relevant.”

“No other group, conference, or exec-ed program has provided me with so much valuable, actionable, and pragmatic advice and tools that I can bring back to my company.”

“The Outthinker CSO Network helps me to stay ahead of the curve so I can better anticipate and plan for everything that’s going on around us.”

“I learn from peers outside of my own industry…I don’t know where else I can get that.” 

“Here I feel at home exploring the different and innovative with my fellow strategists. It is a special, open, safe environment.”
