"Having been there and done that you know exactly what needs to be done to grow a company and that is a powerful message."
-- John Facella, Chairman & Founder The CEO Place and Serial CEO for many years.
"In building First Call Corporation, Bob Norton, was my secret weapon in getting a really audacious job done not only on time and under budget, but done so well that it revolutionized how equity sales was done on Wall Street. His abilities to understand complex requirements, to synthesize elegant solutions, and then to manage a team to get it done, are still the best I've ever seen."
-- Jim Rutt, Ex-CEO Network Solutions and Thomson Labs
“Mr. Norton is a true visionary who can also execute. Few people have the ability to do both.“
-- General Partner, Investment Banking Firm
“The best CEOs require 8 weeks to get up to speed on a new company and market. Bob did it in less than six weeks so our portfolio company could be repositioned quickly and effectively.”
-- Senior Partner, Venture Capital Firm

Strategic Level Systems and Training For More Rapid Success
This seminar is designed for CEOs, senior executives and entrepreneurs who wish to broaden their experience and skills in business by learning a practical framework, with superior methods and approaches to designing and running businesses for high growth and profit. This could be called just a "CEO Boot Camp", but the ones we have seen are so much less, because they are mainly anecdotal, not a complete framework for success. This is a complete system that teaches you how to design and manage departments for all the major business disciplines.
This seminar is high level, so you will learn to design departments, and to set up and manage these business functions successfully. You will be taught to use 12 different business design tools that will improve any business, and well as many shortcuts that will save you thousands of dollars. This is not just a list of things you need to learn or do, but a series of proven methods and systems compiled from decades of experience, plus the best ideas from over 1,000 business books. Mr. Norton has been documenting these systems for the last fourteen months now and they are only available here.
This seminar is an investment in your abilities and skills that will last a lifetime and can literally generate millions in extra profits for you and/or your company. If you are a CEO, or want to be a CEO, or a General Manager, of a significant business, or if you are thinking of launching a company, we believe this will be the best investment you ever make. You will learn practical "How To" techniques that will build any business faster and more profitably. This two day seminar will also help you design, launch and improve new products and businesses by broadening your executive skills and becoming more fluent in the business areas you are not expert in today.

Only experienced managers and entrepreneurs will be admitted, as this is an advanced, content packed and fast moving course designed for people who already have management experience. You will also do workshops actually designing businesses with guidance and help from experts.
Executives in larger organizations will learn to inject Intrapreneurial spirit into their organizations and improve results. All sessions are taught by experts who have "done it before". Robert Norton, founder of C-Level Enterprises will teach most sessions in their entirety with four other expert speakers and guest speakers during lunch. Mr. Norton is a serial entrepreneur that has launched over a dozen products and businesses successfully, as well as learned how to avoid many business missteps through a systematic business design approach he developed over the last 20+ years.
The wisdom of close to 1,000 business books is distilled down to the best ideas that work together in an integrated system. This is a highly pragmatic "How To" course that will give you a framework and all the tools you need to start and run a business. This is not just a seminar consisting of many industry luminaries, panels and CEOs waxing poetic on their past successes, or spinning entertaining anecdotes. These are valuable and fun too, but they do not present a unified and integrated framework for starting and running a business. This structured framework can be used to evaluate, design, improve and launch businesses in any industry. Typically these lessons are not taught, but learned through long, hard and expensive experience.
This System Has Never Been Offered Anywhere Before!
You will not find this material taught in ANY MBA program at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, MIT or Kellogg in any form. Think of the money and time invested in those degrees. It would cost you $50,000 to $100,000 or more, and take years, just to get started in learning to design and launch a business and just to start your practical learning journey. This is a practical course without a lot of theory. -- This is the course you take AFTER getting your MBA - Therefore, we do require at least 3 years of professional management experience to attend.
Combined with your own real-world domain experience and management experience, in your industry, this course will provide all the pieces you need to greatly improve your business, or launch any business. It will also give you the tools to grow any existing business more rapidly.
All instructors are "done it before" experts (see in 8 page brochure below) who have had many years experience in operating roles (not just as consultants or trainers). This should be a required seminar for any CEO or entrepreneur, and any ambitious executive, wishing to understand how to move up the corporate ladder.
A FREE bonus included with each registration is a complete CD-ROM with copies of all the business design tools taught during this intensive course, plus a free ebook and many articles written on these proven business design tools and business philosophies.
This bonus alone is a $499 value if purchased separately.
"If you apply these methods this boot camp will save, or make, your business an extra $100,000 in the first year alone and probably hundreds of thousands over your career! This is everything I wish I had known before founding my first company in 1989. These systems can be used in most executive level decisions you will make, and will therefore have a huge impact on both your business and individual success. It will take entrepreneurs and CEOs to a new level that only 10 to 15 years of hard, expensive lessons and experience as a full-time operating CEO could.
Most people will NEVER figure this all out for themselves -- EVER -- even with 10 years in a rapid growth CEO position. This system contains the combined wisdom of some of the top thought leaders in business over the last two decades. What I have done is combine and integrate these ideas into a framework that can work in any size business.
You can either be taught by someone who has done it already, or you can try to reinvent the wheel over many years. Don't miss this boot camp, as that mistake will definitely cost you millions in extra sales and mistakes over the coming years!"
--- Bob Norton, Serial Entrepreneur and CEO of C-Level Enterprises
