Exec-U-Link Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Exec-U-Link?

An Exec-U-Link is a small, carefully selected group of individuals who serve as a resource for their organization and each other in much the same way a business coach or think tank would advise and counsel corporations or top executives. The members are strategic decision  makers, dedicated to moving the organization forward through active collaboration. They may be colleagues in a professional organization or corporation with common roles or interests such as consulting firm partners, franchisees, VPs or directors, etc.

“My company no longer wastes time and money on products and materials the field doesn’t like. Our Exec-U-Link of key franchisees serves as a focus group to tailor our corporate offerings to what the field and its customers want. The word is out about this group at the home office. Product, marketing and staff VPs compete for spots on the meeting agenda.”

Corporate VP, Exec-U-Link Sponsor


“As a woman in a man’s world, it’s wonderful to collaborate with other high level women who are blazing trails in their companies. Brainstorming, sharing best practices and solving problems with them is a lot different from working with a group where I’m the only woman.”
