Our programs for members include:


Connect with Decision Makers

GCA bridges the best of the high-touch traditions you have come to expect from the old-world with the connectivity and reach you gain from social networks of the new era.


The power of the GCA network emanates from the broad cross-section of key decision makers and influencers from all industries and functional areas worldwide. As ambassadors of their company, members use GCA to fill their most senior-level human capital needs and is ideal for succession planning. Conversely, GCA members are interested in securing career advancement opportunities. Therefore, GCA Career Advancement functions as a two-way system. Members acquire talent while other members secure opportunities. Opportunities include Board Directorships, Advisory Board Members, Full Time & Interim Employees, SME’s, Consultants, Guest Speakers, Authors/Writers and more.

GCA b2b

GCA’s b2b program is ideal for lead generation and securing new business opportunities. It enables members to develop synergies with GCA members and their respective organizations at the governance levels worldwide.


At our core, GCA is a network of remarkably accomplished individuals. GCA members are interested in identifying investment opportunities (for their individual portfolios or on behalf of their investment institutions). Also, the GCA network is comprised of individuals with extended track records of success seeking to raise capital for either their startup, venture fund or organization. Therefore, GCA Ventures functions as a two-way system. Certain members explore and fund investment opportunities while other members raise capital, helping drive advancement and innovation.


GCA Studios is like TED Talks but with continuity centered around each individual Host. GCA members become Hosts on GCA Studios. Each Host has their own public, web-based tv show/podcast featuring varying topics, issues and themes. Guest speakers come from the GCA membership as well as individuals external to GCA. Therefore, GCA Studios functions as a two-way system. Members host their own show while other members appear as guest speakers. This brings together prominent decision makers, influencers and thought leaders to discuss game changing topics impacting business, politics, culture and more.


Through GCA Events, members attend regional/national networking events to foster business relationships, share best practices and elevate professional growth. They are an excellent way to develop synergies with GCA members and their respective organizations at the governance levels and is ideal for lead generation and business development. GCA Events function as a two-way system. Members host in-person networking events while other members attend as their guests. Venues range from small intimate lunch/dinner parties at restaurants or private homes to larger conference-like settings to in-person filmed events with a live audience.


The best way to understand the road ahead is to ask the traveler on their way back! GCA Gandalf is a way for members to share their wisdom, guidance and deep domain expertise to foster profound and enduring mentor-based relationships. Think of the GCA Gandalf program as a two-way thought leadership exchange ideal for cross pollinating thought leadership and domain expertise. Members provide mentorship while other members receive mentorship and vice versa. It works both ways!


A benefit of GCA membership includes public relations to enhance and manage your personal brand. We offer “Spotlights, “Announcements” and “Bio Videos”. Spotlights are biographical in nature and shine the light on the remarkable careers and accomplishments of GCA members. Announcements showcase career promotions, board and advisory appointments, speaking engagements and noteworthy occasions (like a new book, etc.). Bio Videos are short, 2-4 minutes in length, and provide a high-level takeaway on each GCA member’s background, accomplishments, interests and aspirations. Each are professionally curated to showcase members in the best light possible. GCA members like to share these PR elements through their LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter accounts, personal websites, etc.


It’s All About 1° of Separation vs. 6°
