Who becomes members of the Institute?
Members are typically successful business owners and entrepreneurs who see something that needs to be done. You should have the vision and the tenacity to succeed in this.
What do members have in common?
Our members want to ‘give back’ in some way. The Institute provides the stimulation and acts as a catalyst and resource to get your quest started.
Why do people join the Institute?
If you become an Institute member you must have the desire, sense of urgency and the means to create something enduring and worthwhile. You must want to make a difference in a very real and tangible way. And you must want to do it in your lifetime.
What is the Legacy Institute?
The Legacy Institute brings together exclusive groups of successful individuals, business leaders and professionals, to share knowledge and experiences. Our goal is to build something bigger and lasting – something important to the individual.
Who is involved in the Legacy Institute?
The Institute is made up of globally experienced CEOs. We act as mentors, each bringing our experience, our network and our track record – and sharing them with you.
What does the Legacy Institute do?
We run a year-long programme, including a series of intimate workshops with world-class figures and executives, such as Richard Branson and Al Gore. These guest mentors tell their stories, but they also stay, listen, discuss and share.
What does the Legacy Institute produce?
The Institute acts a ‘content curator’, capturing the stories and learning that emerge from the community. We want to refine our legacy knowledge base for those who follow.
Why was the Institute launched?
The Institute is a community of CEOs who have a sense of urgency and a determination to make a difference ourselves. Each of us has a major reason for giving back. This is beyond charitable giving or impact investing. It’s beyond philanthropy. This is personal.
How many CEOs do you work with?
We collaborate with no more than six like-minded business owners and CEOs at a time, to help you build your enduring leadership legacy.
What is your commitment to CEOs who join the Institute?
As partners with you in the Legacy Institute we commit to helping you build an enduring legacy and to supporting you on your journey.
What is your main goal for your CEO members?
Above all we want to ensure your legacy is sustainable and has a disproportionate impact in the country or sector that matters most to you.
So what does the Institute do?
A chapter of the Institute comprises 5-6 people who work together for one year. It’s designed to be personal and intimate.
Who do your members work with?
The Institute provides each member with a personal executive mentor, a CEO in their own right, and a dedicated project manager to bring life to your cause.
How much time will this take?
Each chapter takes three one-week residential retreats over the year, for intense focus and course correction, supported by consulting input and the world-class executive guests. But we’ll be working together, with regular close interaction, for a year.
Along the way, the Institute records your stories, your experiences and your insights to add to the repository of wisdom for the benefit of the generations to follow.
The goal is to create things that are self-sustainable and long-lasting, over generations. Legacy captures the essence of enduring permanence and usefulness.
Giving doesn’t do it. (Whatever you give will run out one day.) Philanthropy doesn’t do it. (Unless it’s sustainable.) Only a legacy endures over time.
There’s one more thing. Legacies aren’t small – they’re big. Millions of dollars are going to get invested. Careers are going to get committed.
So there has to be something enduring to show for it. Otherwise, it’s just spending
Why an Institute?
The legacy of the Institute will be the bank of leadership knowledge, stories, experience and wisdom, accumulated over time.
This can be validated through research, published and shared for the benefit of the generations to follow.
So the focus is on capturing learning as well as as getting legacies built.
Helping people build legacies is amazing. Refining the secret sauce creates new value, so that our members can benefit from – and in turn add to – the Institute’s legacy.
