S1 | Ep22 Cameron Schwab – Design CEO
In episode 22 of the Synergen Leadership Podcast, Julian speaks with Cameron Schwab, founder and CEO of Design CEO.
Design CEO is focused on providing learning opportunities and experiences for senior people in business. Business often turns to the football codes when seeking to understand the key concepts of team, particularly, the role of leadership in terms of establishing a winning culture and executing a game plan. Built around the core principles of teaching mastery, the Design CEO programs seek to mirror the teaching expectations of elite sport and provides workshops and mentoring to support this.
