The Collective Intelligence of Global Leaders:
Your Secret Weapon

Only those who are part of the Organization and actively participate know and recognize its true power.

We believe that in the face of an ever-changing world, a global community of Best-in-class Business Leaders is the secret weapon you need. A peer group, carefully constructed out of diverse leaders and experts, to create an exclusive forum of exchange and growth that you can call your personal Peer Advisory Board.

As a Business Leader, you have a relentless instinct to evolve, and with the support, experience, and insights of one another, we believe that we can propel that evolution further.

At REF we define evolution as "awareness and alignment". Awareness of the knowledge and major trends that every Business Leader must be conscious of in order to align their vision, strategy and execution.

Additionally, we access the diversity of perspectives (product of the different experiences and backgrounds of the members of the Community), to achieve the necessary clarity and address major challenges that allow us to take better strategic decisions.

You will gain access to a network of advisors whose insights and suggestions you can trust, and whose motivation is to see success for all members. Within this confidential forum of business leaders, you can unleash the Collective Intelligence of your group to make crucial decisions, navigate shifting industry landscapes, and propel your professional and personal life forward.

With chapters across the globe, we invite you to take your place among a truly global network of Business Leaders and experts that together make a powerful force for growth and positive change in the world.

What Is Executive Forums?

When you join a Forum Group, you are connected into an exclusive group of 12 to 15 Business Leaders from non-competing industries that meet one morning a month, skillfully guided by a Forum Leader. This Forum Leader curates renowned speakers, experiences, and discussions that generate learning, foster a meaningful exchange of ideas, and help propel each other forward.

Members have a clear objective: to unleash the group's Collective Intelligence to make better strategic decisions, to reach their next business, professional and personal goals, and receive the support of their peers in an environment of absolute confidentiality.
