Building a World Class Company – CEO Academy with Joel Trammell 2019-03-11T12:41:27-06:00

A CEO’s Guide to Improving Performance

When was the last time you spent time becoming a better CEO? Come join the CEOs of some of Austin’s premier companies in an educational series on building a world class company. This series is designed for the CEO with a successful growing business looking for the tools to maximize value and increase company performance. Created for CEOs of growing companies, this is not a startup class but a chance to learn from and network with other accomplished CEOs.

All the classes will be led by Joel Trammell, a 20-year veteran of the CEO position.  Joel is the current CEO of Khorus and the former CEO of Blackbox, NetQoS and Cache IQ. The class size will be limited. Each session will be over a provided lunch (starting session 2) and last an hour and a half with lecture and discussion mixed together.

During the first session you will receive a signed copy of The CEO Tightrope, Joel’s book about the job of a CEO.

Here is what some of the CEOs who have attended this seminar had to say:

Denver Fredenberg, CEO of Hyperware: “Joel Trammell’s CEO Seminar is a must, especially for any first-time CEO’s. You will learn what to expect as a CEO and the ins and outs of building a powerful team through Joel’s real life experience and candid feedback. You will also hear from and network with some of the more successful executive leaders in Austin. I pull from this experience with every challenge I face….especially the ones I never expected. Go do this!”

Chuck Gordon, CEO of SpareFoot: “CEO Summer Camp was a great experience because it gives you a chance to step back from your day-to-day and think strategically with the help of Joel Trammell. I learned tactics that I now put into action every day.”

Melanie Kalemba, former CEO of Movero Technology: “The CEO seminar was not only insightful and thought provoking on leadership styles and successful business constructs, it afforded a unique opportunity to interact with my peers across a variety of companies. I learned lessons I still refer to today in managing people and the culture of an organization.”
