What would you give for the ability to tap into a group of 6-8 fellow business owners who can offer you direction based on their experiences? Your monthly Forum acts as your personal board of advisors and allows you to explore the deepest decisions you face in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Moderator-trained EO members guide the sessions, which emphasize confidentiality, personal responsibility and lessons learned. Members don’t give advice; they speak from experience, letting you draw your own conclusions on how to best proceed.
As EO Forums are the #1 rated benefit, we also offer spouses of members the same benefit by joining a Spousal Forum. Spouses experience similar pressures of entrepreneurship and in many cases take on sole responsibility for family, social and personal commitments. As a spousal forum member, you are able to gather with others facing similar challenges and share personal and professional challenges you may be experiencing. This provides an opportunity for confidential experience sharing and yield great support, personal growth and empowerment.
EO Global events combine provocative learning programs with unique resources and memorable social venues. Our biggest events, called Universities, bring hundreds of members together for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at exciting locations around the world each year. Universities, as well as smaller events like our EO Colleges, enable you to learn from business experts, experience other cultures and build relationships with members outside of your chapter.
As an EO Richmond member, you’re part one of the world's most thriving chapters! You can participate in regular chapter learning and social events, all of which help you grow as a business, family and community leader. What’s more, the peer interaction and educational opportunities at these events will help you become a well-rounded entrepreneur by expanding your network and improving your business knowledge.
EO is proud to offer members the opportunity to learn at a higher, more intense level through executive education programming, both locally and globally. EO challenges members’ assumptions, tests their ways of doing business, and introduces them to new and unexpected ways of thinking. Most important, members return to their business with fresh ideas, new skills, a toolkit of resources and a greater capacity for addressing the challenges they and their company will face.
Connecting members to the best health care and counseling in the world through alliances with top centers of medical excellence, the Healthnetwork Foundation offers members peace of mind. If a member or one of his/her family faces an addiction, mental health need, illness or injury, the Entrepreneurs' Organization provides access to leading doctors at the best facilities around the world through Healthnetwork Foundation.
"At an EO University, I met remarkable people and brought back ideas that I implemented in my business. You have to experience one to fully understand how EO can impact your life, personally and professionally."
