The Best Investment You’ll Make In Your Company

Collaborate with your Peers

Your peers can be instrumental in your exponential success. At the COO Alliance we’ve created a culture where we can be vulnerable with each other and comfortably share our fears, insecurities, weaknesses, dreams, desires, and goals. 

COO Alliance members recognize that their growth has come from learning from others, conversations with peers, and exchanging ideas with other seconds-in-command.

The COO Alliance is your tribe – not just a network. It is a group of people collaborating and sharing information to solve issues you are facing in real-time. 

World-Class Content

You won’t have a need to constantly check your phone – COO Alliance events capture your attention immediately.

Members run presentations to the group on areas that they feel stuck, and receive feedback from other members. We work through a variety of forms, worksheets, and exercises to encourage members to be introspective and grow themselves and their companies.

At COO Alliance events you can expect to receive guidance on a variety of key topics.

Safe Zone

Your tribe has a closed door policy. You can trust that nothing you say will leave the event.

We operate the meetings in a confidential environment that allows everyone to feel comfortable in truly sharing and opening up with each other.

You can safely share problems you are facing and you’ll receive the support you are needing to find the solution. The COO Alliance only invites seasoned professionals to speak at these events about real problems the Second-in-Command is facing.

Bonus Time = 10x ROI Guarantee

We publicly market and stand behind our 10X return or money back guarantee. Since day one, we’ve told members they’ll leave with ideas that are worth 10X of their COO Alliance investment in either savings or new revenue, or else we’ll give them their money back.

“BONUS TIME” is carefully calculated by members collaborating on an idea, assessing their delta, developing an implementation strategy and conservatively estimating how much savings or new revenue they are expecting. 

Our members ALWAYS hit Bonus Time. Listen to members share their bonus time below.
