The Academy for Chief Executives is looking for successful business leaders in the Lynn area to set up and chair new local groups in 2016.

For the past 20 years the Academy has helped thousands of chief executives around the UK and now wants leading business figures from West Norfolk to step forward and establish more groups which will help others achieve their business and personal goals.

Local Academy groups are aimed at leaders of businesses with a turnover of between £2m to £200m. There are already 45 groups up and running across the country with an average turnover of between £5m-£10m.

Chief Executive of the Academy, Andrew Morris, explained: “We’re looking to identify business leaders in Lynn and the surrounding area who’ve reached the pinnacle of their careers, have successfully scaled up a business, and who are willing to share the lessons they’ve learnt along the way.“

Current Academy chairmen have found the role an enriching experience from both a professional and personal perspective, he said.

David Brient, Academy for Chief Executives chairman in East Anglia said: “It is a really rewarding role which allows me to bring both my business and life experience to Academy members, helping them to set and achieve new goals. Even the most successful chief executives can gain valuable input for making critical business decisions and I am sure that being part of our Academy group is a key factor for the growth of these companies.”

Membership of the Academy for Chief Executives provides access to bespoke leadership development and training; information and tools on the latest business practices; and guidance on topics ranging from recruiting and retaining talent, to the best time to float a business and work-life balance.

Members benefit from having better perspective and clarity on difficult business decisions; obtaining new ideas and approaches that they know will work; and gaining greater confidence in their ability to take their business to the next level.

Anyone interested in finding out more about applying for the chair roles in Lynn and the surrounding area can attend an open day in the prestigious surroundings of Colwick Hall in Nottingham on Wednesday, November 25.
