CEO STAND-UP Weekly Lunch

Every Wednesday,

Members of The Executives’ Club gather from 12:00 to 1:00pm to share a casual weekly lunch, share business insights and hear stories from fellow Members.

CEO STAND-UP is an opportunity for any Member to suggest topics for discussion, make a pitch or presentation, reserve a date to lead the conversation and, simply get to know each other better.

Since 2016, we’ve hosted well over 300 Wednesday lunch conversations, making this our Club’s longest-running and most widely-attended Signature Program.

Jim Buus, President, JBC Commercial Real Estate, and David Dietz, President, Preference Employment Solutions, share the value of our longest-running Signature Program, our Wednesday lunch

For 5 years, the staff at Porter Creek welcomed us for Wednesday lunch. In 2021, we changed up the scenery to Spitfire Bar & Grill for one year. Now, we are excited to be enjoying the privacy of The Grotto for CEO STAND-UP each week. Thank you to the staff of each of these great establishments for welcoming us.

CEO STAND-UP is an open-forum; an opportunity for Execs’ Club Members to ‘step outside their comfort zone’ perhaps, and lead a C-level conversation or presentation on any topic of their choosing.

Discuss a book, an article; make a new business pitch or investment opportunity; or, delve deeper into the personal side of leadership.

The mic is yours.

  1. Select a date at least 2-4 weeks in advance.
  2. Provide us with a title, brief description and key takeaways. We will build the event in our private Facebook group and invite all Members to attend.
  3. Let us know if you’ll be providing a handout and/or if you’ll need a monitor for video or slide presentation. The Fire Pit at Spitfire has 2 large monitors mounted for easy HDMI hookup.
  4. We encourage you to help peak interest in the event, by starting a pre-discussion in The Executives’ Club of Fargo-Moorhead | private Facebook group. All Members are permitted to post in our private group.

The subject matter and format are wide-open. You can present about your organization; discuss a business/leadership book or article; or lead any type of open-forum conversation. The room is yours for the hour. Thank you for your engagement.

Please visit our private Facebook group or watch for your weekly Member email for details of each CEO Stand-Up event. Many of these business presentations can also be viewed remotely from our FB group. If the topic is of a more in-depth or personal basis, you must be on-site to participate.
