  • Executive & Business Owners Roundtable

  • The Shakopee Chamber Executive & Business Owner's Roundtable provides a structured, confidential and trusting environment for executives and business owners to give and receive the benefit of their experiences to help resolve business challenges.  Participation in this group allows leaders to make better strategic decisions, focus on "the right things," improve communication and build long-term relationships.

    Meetings take place on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 7:30am - 9:00am at the Chamber office.

  • Why should I join this group?

    Executives have a responsibility to represent their stakeholders in the most flexible way possible. This means meaningfully promoting the interests of their employees, customers, consumers, and communities. One of the most effective ways to develop an enlightened perspective is to learn from other like-minded professionals.

    1. Incubator for problems. Maybe you don’t have a problem you’re wrestling with today, but you might tomorrow. And, through these discussions you begin to create a community of people who you can call up and ask “how would you handle this?” when tomorrow comes.
    2. Build a professional community. The intent of the Roundtable is to keep the group manageable which allows for an “off-the-record” tone. This cultivates familiarity and sense of collegiality with professional peers. Leaders develop successful business strategies, engage a sounding board, and hear new tactical ideas. We promote open exchange of ideas through group discussion.
    3. Diverse but like-minded leaders. Participants come from various sectors of the business community. However, they are united in their efforts to develop a higher purpose for their company, its employees and greater community. This eclectic mix will help build a rock-solid network of leadership peers who can be used as a resource in the future.
    4. C-Suite curiosity. Being an executive or key leader can be a lonely job. Few people understand the responsibilities, challenges, and ultimate accountability that go along with the position. We learn, grow, and help build a better world like anyone else. And, while we can learn a lot from the people we work with every day, it helps enormously to learn from fellow c-suite colleagues who have “walked a mile in our shoes.” So, we can really delve deep and take this opportunity to ask our peers questions like, “How did you manage X, Y, Z crisis?”, “How did you organize and execute this initiative?”
  • Who can participate in this group?

    Shakopee Chamber members who hold a c-suite title (CEO, CFO, COO, GM or VPs), have an upper management role in their organization or are a small business owner may participate. There is no cost to Shakopee Chamber members for participation in the roundtable meetings.  However, to respect the privacy of its members, the executive roundtable is a private group.  If you have an interest in joining the group, please contact Scott Morrell before attending a meeting.

    For more information, contact Scott Morrell, facilitator.
