Connecting CEOs

We believe two heads are better than one. And a peer team committed to each other’s success is exponentially better. Convene consists of high-capacity peers in a non-judgmental and confidential environment who help one another gain insight, experience business growth, have impact, and a leave a strong legacy.

Empowering CEOs

Time is money. At Convene, we can guarantee that your time is well-spent. The people, resources, and materials available to our members help to multiply their time. Growing business requires good investments and members of Convene see the return year after year.

Convene Offers Key Benefits to its Members

Insight

To see what others don’t see…to draw from the intuition of others…to gain understanding from what is happening around us….Insight from Convene Teams comes through all of these and so much more. All of us have times where we just can’t see it - about others, about ourselves, about the issue in front of us. From the “council of many”, wisdom can be discerned and acted upon with incredible results.

“Convene really helped me in an area of my business where I knew I was weak. My team directed me to a person who spent the time to help me develop this blind spot.”
- Mike Barland, Owner, MGP Caliper Covers

Growth

Your business leadership is both a gift and a stewardship from God. The Parable of the Talents is clear: God expects you to get a good return on the assets He has entrusted to you including: profits to keep the company healthy, opportunities for your employees and a fair return for you and other shareholders. While profitability is vital and good, God’s definition of “success” requires integration with other priorities in life.

“Convene has really helped me focus my energy and become a better leader.”
- Frank Cozza, Architect & CEO, Gondola Skate

Impact

Being an incredible leader in your company is important; being a great spouse or parent has an even more profound impact. Investing the time to develop nurturing and supportive relationships, honoring your commitments, and faithfully living out your faith with the people you care most about will impact generations to come. At Convene, we invite God to work through us together for greater impact in our families, with our teams at work and their families, our communities, around the world, and eternally.

“Convene impacted my spiritual stewardship to my employees, my customers and my vendors.”
- Toby Wiik, President/CEO, Standard Filter Corporation

Legacy

God has a unique plan and great adventure for your life and business! It embraces your dreams, strengths, passions, personality, and experiences. At Convene, we emphasize that our true significance comes from loving and serving God faithfully in all areas of life. He has blessed you with the opportunity to serve others in and through your business, using your gifts and abilities, and to be a blessing to the world by bearing “much fruit.” At Convene, we help one another live into the destinies for which God created us.

“My Convene group has helped me work through coming up with what legacy I want to leave.”
- Toby Wiik, President/CEO, Standard Filter Corporation
