CEO Advisors Network Announces Affiliation with the Edward Lowe Foundation to Offer the PeerSpectives® Roundtable System

CEO Advisors Network and The Edward Lowe Foundation is committed to the development and progress of Second-Stage™ Companies

Orange County, CA, December 16, 2007 --( CEO Advisors Network, announced today that they will be offering a highly successful and proven executive roundtable format developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation that gives CEOs, presidents, and business owners the opportunity to gain timely insights and unbiased knowledgeable feedback from their peers known as the PeerSpectives® Roundtable System.

“We know the system works, because we've seen the results first-hand in tables running in Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio and Florida”, said Penny Lewandowski, Director of Entrepreneurship Development at the Edward Lowe Foundation.

Each roundtable will be made up of eight to fifteen non-competing business owners who will come together 10 times over a 12-month period to confidentially share their experiences, challenges and opportunities and will be led by an experienced facilitator trained by the Edward Lowe Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to providing assistance to business owners seeking rapid growth for their established businesses.

Facilitated peer-to-peer exchanges enable business owners to tap into the collective wisdom of their peers on topics such as finance, employee relations, legal compliance, marketing, accessing new markets, production, and personal isolation. The group members are committed to confidentiality, sharing, accountability, and dispassionate analysis.

Participation in a roundtable costs $1,800 annually, which is significantly discounted compared to similar programs, and is targeted for Second-Stage™ companies which are defined as:

- privately held,
- past the start-up stage,
- facing issues of growth rather than survival
- transitioning from an entrepreneurial to a professional management style
- generating between $750,000 and $50 million in annual revenue or has that range of working capital in place

“We’re excited about partnering with the Edward Lowe Foundation to offer the PeerSpectives® roundtables to the owners of fast growing Second-Stage™ companies that often do not have the luxury of a sophisticated board of directors to guide them through challenging issues”, said Paul Wirth, President at CEO Advisors Network.
