How does Corporate Alliance work?

You join as a member of one or more of our four curated experience programs:

Executive Pools, C4 Teams, Jump, and Illuminate.

Many of the people I view as personal friends in the valley here are people I’ve come to know through CA events.


C4 Logo

The C4 Team program is designed to connect C-level leaders through a variety of exclusive retreats and events. This program has been carefully designed to help each member benefit from the time, influence and resources of the other participants. The C4 program will give you access to the most powerful tool in business—each other.

C4 is about helping executives identify new opportunities in new destinations. We bring you together to maximize your time and augment your foresight. Leverage your combined experience and be uber-connected!

We have designed these events to avoid the superficial and accelerate meaningful relationships. Jump into the activities, indulgent cuisine, entertaining stories, team connects, and so much more. We all have different tastes and we keep it fresh and engaging as you build friendships.


These monthly events are held at different fine dining establishments and allow C4 members to continue to build new relationships and reconnect with loyal friends. We make it easy for you to reconnect and keep your network strong.

Say What?


Executive Escapes are events for couples to reconnect at beautiful resorts with other couples. Build loyal friendships with other executives and their spouses by having fun together! The seeds of the best opportunities grow after trust has been established by sharing unforgettable experiences.

Executive Pools

“It’s lonely at the top,” people often say. Recruiting, sales, marketing, strategy, hiring, firing, culture, pricing, new products and services, balancing finances; the list is endless. The issues executives face are complex and interconnected. Leadership often means shouldering burdens others can’t see or understand.

Executive Pools was created to alleviate the isolation business leaders face. We bring peers together to relax in beautiful locations to connect and help each other find fresh solutions and new opportunities.


Program Benefits:
Relationship Summits at luxury resorts
Monthly Development Session breakfasts

Executive Pools Relationship Summits exist to help you grow your business and achieve your goals. During the two-day retreats we facilitate at luxury resorts, we help you slow down and create the space to take the long view on your business and personal life. You deserve the support of a group of peers who can bring clarity to the complex issues you face and help you prioritize.


Meeting over breakfast with peers who share your values, members bring their toughest challenges and seek fresh perspectives. During Development Sessions, our members build strong relationships in a collaborative environment and hone their leadership skills. We make it easy for you to reconnect and keep your network strong.

Summits are all about connecting, and this experience is especially designed to help accelerate your relationships. Meeting the spouses of other members helps you to learn more about them and find new ways to serve. Enjoy a weekend getaway at a local resort with your closest companion! We’ve taken care of all the details.

Jump Logo

It isn’t enough to know people, you have to be unforgettable and useful to be influential. Jump is about establishing a growth mindset, practicing effective relationship skills, and embracing accountability for the quality of your results.

While connecting with friends over breakfast, inspiring local business leaders teach you how to grow a thriving business. Together, we’ll explore the stories and best practices that improve your ability to lead change. 

There’s an old quote by Bismarck that says, in effect, any fool can learn from experience. The trick is to learn from other people’s experience.
