The Art & Science of Leading

Executive education, coaching and leadership




  • “CEOs by nature don’t have peers within their companies. It is extremely valuable to get together with a group of like-minded CEOs and talk through the challenges that each of us are facing. It turns out that many of us have similar challenges!”   - Jeff Perlman

  • “New leaders are learning on the battlefield as to how to establish their businesses, survive and grow. Establishing connections with other CEOs through the exchange and sharing best practices and experiences is a great way to learn how to step back and work on improving our ventures with the support of peers that share similar challenges.” - Edison Almeida

  • “I find the experience with ArtScience Group CEO Exchange to be extremely healthy and refreshing. It is extremely important for CEOs to share common challenges and experiences and use that exchange to make their company healthier. The Exchange has greatly helped me as both a leader and a CEO.  While there is a great deal of overlap in these roles, there are important differences.  In a small company where everyone wears many hats and “triage” can be the modus operandi, one can get consumed by “leading” a situation and lose site of the CEO responsibility.  I found that the discipline of the forum, the shared experiences, external viewpoints and the 30,000 foot vantage that Allexe and the other CEOs bring in assessing next major steps of the role has brought an important balance to how I have set priorities for myself.  Inputs don’t come just from comments on my challenge, but learning from and commenting on the challenges of the others.” - Moneer Azzam

  • “Her experience and skill working with entrepreneurial companies became immediately evident with her ability to zero in on the crux of the business and the company’s business model; to ask key questions that shed light on the substance of their value proposition; and, to provide thoughtful suggestions” - Alice Nichols
