Facilitator: Judi Awsumb

Mission: The CEO Nexus/WE, Women Entrepreneurs group, was founded by Judi Awsumb, President Awsumb Enterprises, Inc. to create a group of women entrepreneurs who want to accelerate the growth of their companies in a confidential, supportive, professionally facilitated environment where other successful women business owners can learn from each other for mutual benefit.

Objective: To develop and implement innovative solutions to the many business challenges women leaders face by sharing experiences and expertise in a collaborative familiar “peer to peer” learning environment. The roundtable group utilizes the collective knowledge of the group to improve, grow and achieve profitability objectives through a highly developed interactive process.

Focus: Our group meets once a month at Rollins College from 9am-1pm where we focus on growth strategies, operations, leadership and succession planning. Our target is 2nd stage women-owned businesses. We allow one member per industry to avoid any type of competition or conflict among our members.

Testimonials – Hear what other CEOs have to say…
Claire Evans
President & CIC, Amazulu
As an entrepreneur of a small business I don’t have that sounding board to run ideas past someone and it is lonely at the top, until now. I look so forward to our monthly meetings to share like problems, but more so, I always leave the meeting with a resolution. The girls are all wonderful people, motivated, happy to share resources and honestly my trusted advisors.
Sue Messner
President, Global Network Services
It has been so valuable to get input on issues that I face from others who have already been down the same road. This group has been the key for my organization making quicker and better-informed decisions that saved me time, money and stress. The monthly meetings are my favorite day of each month!
Deborah Harding, MD
CEO, Harding Medical Institute
CEO Nexus, Women’s Collaboration Group members and leaders were there to help me develop answers to problems that made sense using their expertise from their own real-life business experiences at running their own successful companies. After one year of being involved as a member there was no question I was going to continue.

The CEO Roundtables are implemented through the Florida PeerSpectives® Network, composed of roundtables throughout the state. Each roundtable brings together 10 to 12 qualified entrepreneurs ten times each year for collaborative problem-solving sessions that address issues important to their companies. Owners, CEOs, and Presidents share their management challenges, ideas, and experiences in structured confidential groups led by a trained facilitator. Don’t worry, we won’t pair you with your competitors! The peer participants share experiences and discuss techniques for overcoming obstacles to growth in every key business area, such as finance, employee relations, legal compliance, technology, and sales & marketing.
Every CEO Nexus Roundtable follows the PeerSpectives® Roundtable System model developed by the Edward Lowe Foundation. Highly productive, this model is based on proven best practices in the field of peer learning and has been custom tailored to meet the particular needs of growing second-stage companies. The foundation is committed to assisting the owners of growing, established companies with practical programs and expertise, emphasizing programs for entrepreneurs looking to take their companies to the next level.
