I have had the privilege of working with Cathy Lieberman and the Chicago Chapter of the COO Forum for the last two years. Cathy has assembled a great group of professionals from different businesses that are able to collaborate and help each other solve business problems in a safe and confidential environment.

The COO Forum has really made an impact with me, as I have been able to take input from Cathy and my other colleagues directly to my office to help facilitate conversations and make important decisions. The roundtable discussions alone have made my investment of time and money well worth it.

Cathy and the group are outstanding!
