I have found the CEO Share Group to be extremely beneficial to our business. We cover topics selected by the group members which has provided me with far more insight and contemporary knowledge than I was able to glean from our Company’s former Advisory Board. Each member of the group goes out of their way to help each other, and Mike Brouillard’s coordination and leadership has ensured that we stay focused on matters of strategic and tactical importance.
—Craig M. Smith President & CEO, Mizkan EuroAmericas
I find my Share Group as an outstanding resource to gain insight on a wide range of topics. Best practices, new approaches to old problems, benchmarking initiatives are common topics of discussion. It also has been a helpful education resource in areas not in my immediate accountability. The camaraderie gained with fellow practitioners also enables for insights throughout the year and not just during our bi-annual sessions.
—Matt O’Connor, VP Supply Chain, Rockline Industries
Mike is an excellent facilitator and has been a great help to me over the time I have known him. Aside from his exemplary skills at keeping our meetings relevant, interesting and lively, Mike has been a trusted confidant and perhaps more importantly, has always made himself available to help those needing career advice and hiring advice. I am happy to provide my highest recommendation of Mike Brouillard.

The Share Group provides a great forum to share and solve common problems with a group of very talented people who have a common goal of being students of our industry. Being part of the Share Group has provided me access to a network of talented people who are also seeking solutions to industry problems. Access to talented associates, continuous industry news and information, and the ability to learn from others makes this a tangible positive ROI. In addition to quality discussions at the meetings, I have more than once called the other team members to seek their thoughts on advise on a variety of issues. To be successful in our rapidly changing industry, one must be willing to share and learn from others to address the complex issues we are all facing. The Share Group fits this need. MBC provides a great forum for continuous learning to address the issues and opportunities that I face every day.
—Larry Hamwey, VP Business Development The Jel Sert Company
I have only attended one of the MBC Share Groups but can say I was very pleasantly surprised by the not only the information that came out of the meeting, but also by subsequent activity such as industry knowledge and help from other Share Group members on issues that came up outside the meeting. In the past I have been a member/attendee of similar groups and never really felt the actual results lived up to the hype of the organizers. It’s nice to be under-promised and over-delivered.
