The Founder 

John Mancuso

Dr. Joe Mancuso

Founder President, CEO Clubs International

The founder of the non-profit Chief Executive Officers Clubs (CEO Clubs), Dr. Joe Mancuso is the entrepreneurs entrepreneur.

Hear him share his favorite luncheon talk which is the title of his first book, "Fun And Guts: The Entrepreneurs Philosophy, in which he shows how these Ready-Fire-Aim" types spot a growth industry, select a first mate, negotiate for money, create resources where none exists, who wrote the best business plan and why, avoid personally guaranteeing bank debt, motivate employees to work harder than humanly possible, inspire investors/shareholders to believe in the vision, and deal with family complexities.

Mancuso often works the traits of the Members who completed various diagnostics tests, which he developed for entrepreneurs, into these talks. And his blend of humor puts the audience at ease. In all, participants have paid over $100,000,000 to hear the talks and workshops conducted or arranged by Joseph Mancuso.
