The expectations of the CEO have changed. Your employees expect you to advocate for them. Your customers expect you to contribute to society. Shareholders, even, are expecting a different sort of leadership.

independent Board counsel

Assess whether there are reputational weak spots in board and executive candidates, and the company more broadly, that can be exploited by opportunists.

Seminars & Presentations

Educate your audience or in-house PR team about what’s happening in CEO activism, the changing risk/opportunity matrix for CEO reputation, or the activists inside your own office.

Networking Event Strategy

Create must-attend bespoke events to bring together those whom you want to both know better and influence.

Speech Writing

Work with a writing partner to create compelling speeches in your voice and tell a memorable story that has impact.

Media Training & Preparedness

A strong performance in a media interview can change the course of a crisis, just as a poor one can. Don’t leave this to chance.

Why Focus on CEOs

CEOs hold unique power. They can effect change without legislation. They control where money is spent. They represent their employees and customers who feel abandoned by increasingly polarized politics. In an era of calls for CEO activism, most are missing their opportunity to do something positive with their power. My goal is to help them do that with a pragmatic approach, mindful of the difference between real risk and shadows.


Who Chooses Executive Act

CEOs (past, present and future) who want to

  • use their influence and power to make change on issue that’s personally important
  • build their personal reputation to support business growth
  • fortify their personal and corporate reputation against activists.
