Are you a Coraggian?
You are invited to be a part of Coraggio’s new Sydney Advisory Board
This is a unique opportunity to take your place at the table with similarly successful peers seeking to take their business from good to great. It can be lonely at the top, yet critical to both your personal and your company’s success to seek out fearless, objective advice and the support of impartial but committed minds. This is Coraggio. A community where you will experience a deep sense of camaraderie, a wealth of collective wisdom, sharp insight and a structure that serves one key goal, to advance your business to greatness whilst developing you as a leader.
Business leaders who find their way to Coraggio seek a dynamic support and advisory network built around generating personal and business growth and a community that delivers greater than the sum of its parts.
Selective Membership is now available for a new Coraggio Advisory Board (CAB) commencing in Sydney and chaired by Peter Kearney, an experienced senior executive and board director.
Peter Kearney, B.Com Hons M.AppFin, spent the first decade of his career working as a Chartered Accountant in both public practice and in corporate before finding his true calling in business innovation and transformation. During his time with a significant British technology company, ICL, in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, he gained valuable exposure early in his career to the issues that businesses face in the context of strategic change. This experience laid the foundation for his future career, which he has pursued in roles as an entrepreneur, consultant and corporate executive.
In a business startup context, Peter has a wide range of experiences primarily in the technology and business consulting fields. In the 1990’s he performed played a key role in establishing regional operations for a number companies and products including TeamWare, Dodge, Thawte and X-Pert. Some of the businesses, like Thawte, were enormously successful, while might be best characterised as valuable learning experiences. Recently, he has fulfilled an executive role in a private equity firm, implementing transformational changes for a number startups, including Ondek, WhiteSky Labs and Envie. This brought him to the conclusion that success comes only to those who are prepared to fail.
In a corporate context, Peter has performed work for Nissan, Novartis, Nedcor Bank, Rand Merchant Bank, BT, Tenix, Siemens, Allco Finance and many others companies. He spent over ten years working with PBL Media companies, including ACP Magazines (now Bauer Media) and Nine Entertainment and was instrumental in introducing and managing numerous organisational change initiatives across the group. Through these experiences, he has learned that few business problems can be solved without commitment and support; people commit to the things they believe in and support the things they have ownership in.
Peter’s approach is to stimulate open dialogue and encourage participants to reflect upon the business challenges and opportunities that they and other team members face. Solutions and ideas that we find in this context have far more resonance and validity than those found in books or thought up in isolation. The collaborative spirit of Coraggio is very much a reflection of the values and beliefs that Peter has developed through his career.
WHAT MAKES A GOOD CHAIR?
Coraggio Chairs have navigated decades of corporate experiences including failure and struggle. A professional chairperson provides the discipline and focus to help members learn new business styles and approaches from each other in a meaningful and immediately useful way. It’s a challenging role to facilitate a group of business leaders seeking support to grow their business and be the best they can be.
HOW THE GROUP IS RUN
Meeting monthly, the CAB journeys Members towards business excellence and personal enrichment through peer-to-peer mentoring, sharing and learning. CABs are leadership in action, where members challenge themselves and are challenged by others in a safe environment. Friendly yet robust discussion drives momentum and positive peer pressure holds members accountable to their own decisions. The resultant Coraggio spirit runs deep is expressed by what members both possess and provide:
- Readiness and willingness for challenge
- Mutual exchange
