5 Minute Interview with Caroline Hayward, CEO/Founder of The Chairman’s Network


What is the Chairman's Network?

We're an online and offline collaborative business network for Members who are Chairmen, CEO's, NXD and Board Directors, mainly of SME businesses, UK and Internationally. We also have relevant Partners and Sponsors.

Why did you set it up? 

When I was in Executive Search in the technology sector I attended many events - but I always felt marginalised and found myself on table 11 again with other service providers accountants, lawyers etc whereas as a CEO myself, I wanted to meet other technology industry leaders. I was angry and felt that I could do it better!

We are all on an equal footing at the Chairman's Network.

Why do people join?

We are a collaborative business network so everybody joins with the understanding that they will connect, engage, collaborate and ideally do business with new and relevant people, by joining events and/or using the online platform. These include our fascinating Coffee Meetings where we introduce a maximum of 10 executives to each other. We also have subject - specific Round Table Events for 20 as well as some larger networking events- and it's all inclusive in the annual Membership fee of only £299+ vat.

What outcomes or benefits can members expect? 

Outcomes can be very diverse from M&A opportunities; corporate finance; give/receive expert advice; Board roles; education on latest business developments or industries; investment /opportunities. The list is endless. Much like the gym, if you don't engage at events you won't derive the benefits!

You can join a free Coffee Meeting or Event and/or join our thriving network at www.chairmansnetwork.com

You can also call or email me personally if you have any questions
