We started CEO Hangout, a community for CXOs and head of departments in Dec 2011 as an informal networking group. We would meet up at cafes, bars and restaurants more for networking than anything else. We did our 1st business conference 'Strategy Summit' in August 2013, it attracted 33 attendees. After that, the group became inactive and dormant, and many of us got busy with other things. In April of this year, I decided this was something that shouldn't be sitting on the shelf because it had immense potential. We created a set of events, and took a shot again with a new approach with all the experience we gained while this property was sitting on the shelf.
