About CEO HQ

Strategy | Leadership Development | Business Mentor

At CEO HQ our objective is to turn your challenges into opportunities, innovate, achieve and empower growth; whether that is by developing your team, growing your business or you as an individual.

We enable access to advice, mentoring, guidance, support and the knowledge and expertise of accomplished CEOs without the full-time expense.

We have spent many years helping businesses grow, innovate and turn challenges into opportunities.

Responding to the needs of small and medium-size business owners, we have challenged the status quo, where only corporate or large organisation can afford an accomplished CEO or Executive expert.

We are revolutionising advisory and mentoring services. You access savvy experts, who have knowledge, skill and expertise, but most importantly a proven track record in growing businesses and achieving results.

These services are now accessible to all business owners, regardless of what stage you are at in business.

You wouldn't visit a doctor and expect to receive the same diagnosis as every other patient. At CEO HQ we believe that while the fundamentals of running a business are similar, each business, is in fact, different.

Therefore in the first instance, our experts work with you, the business owner to conduct a diagnosis of your business with a 90-minute strategy session.

Phase two is to establish your growth plans through a one-day intensive workshop.

Phase three is you have an accountability partner who supports you with regular sessions focusing on working ON your business, through action and implementation. Our aim is to help you overcome your challenges, reach your goals, providing the expertise and practical knowledge to grow and build your sustainable, thriving business.

As your partner, we are your sounding board, to help you grow your business by offering guidance and by holding you to your commitments.
