The Executive Forum is an opportunity for executive leaders with big portfolios and responsibilities to come together in a safe space to talk about both challenges and opportunities.

To ask questions, to seek help, to offer ideas and share best practice. An opportunity to continue to elevate your practice of leadership with other executive leaders who get it.


Doing new things, expanding your own experiences by meeting new people, going to new places, introducing new activities all support the concept of expanding yourself. To broaden your knowledge of the world and your perspective, to challenge your sense of what is normal or usual, is a great way to open yourself up to creating a bigger vision.

Talking to other people who are innovators, creators, and explorers in their space about what they see on the horizon, what they are thinking about at the moment, what ideas they have, what patterns they are seeing is an effective way to gain insights beyond your own.


Stacey Ashley’s Executive Forum is a complimentary, invitation only, global event series, exclusively for CEOs and senior executives with significant portfolios.

The Executive Forum meets monthly online for up to one hour.

We start at 5 minutes past the hour and finish at 5 minutes before the hour, to respect your time.

Each session may have a different format, including:

  • Teach & implement
  • Current trends
  • Round table
  • Q&A
  • Guest speaker
  • Interview
  • Panel
  • Planning session
  • Workshop
  • Break out conversation

The Executive Forum is about bringing together great people, great content, and great timing.

*We insist on a protected space, so while content and stories can be shared, names and organisations cannot be shared without express permission.

We can all work hard and fulfil our leadership roles but with the help of Stacey I think I have been able to rise to the challenges and perform with more purpose, and focus. I highly recommend investing in yourself to enable you to reflect and continue to grow in your professional world.

Stacey has a deep appreciation of business management which resulted in our conversations often extending beyond the scope of what I expected.

Managing Director

Having a check-in with someone outside the organisation kept me accountable for following through on things I'd discussed actioning with Stacey and provided an external source of encouragement to keep going.

The concepts and strategies Stacey shared are now being actively used by our leaders in their day-to-day activities, and the positive approaches she employed throughout the program were loved by everyone.

As a result, our team now feels more equipped to face the day-to-day challenges of their roles and more importantly lead in a new way ensuring the organisation continues to grow.
