"The Boulder Software CEO club has been a valuable asset for me. As all CEO's know, an audience of peers is the best way to deal with many difficult challenges that we face every day and cannot take to staff, investors or board members. I have been a member of other CEO groups and the BSC group by far has the best talent and is clearly the most efficient and effective. I would highly recommend it to any and all CEOs."

Steven Grandchamp,
CEO
