“CEO/GM Blindness” can result from lack of experience and/or education in a particular area. It can also result from selective perception shaped by deeply ingrained points of view, and/or biases we all develop over time, etc.
We’ll briefly address some typical examples of causes and consequences in a brief presentation. Then members will share some of their “war stories” regarding retrospective “blindness situations.”
These discussions will include the situation, the blindness involved, its cause (the “Why?”), and what they would now do differently.
As always, we’ll look to hear – and discuss – “What’s Keeping You Up Nights?” And we’ll also serve as Strategic Advisory Board Members to Miranda Su, as she makes her Featured Member Presentation.

Our San Gabriel Valley Technology Round Table meets on the 1st Friday of the month. Meetings are held via Zoom with an In-Person session held quarterly.
"ABL has been a great pay-off for me and I have found great value. It has brought me help in financing the company, resolving financial issues, and customer problems. And it’s served for personal growth, too."
"I probably would have to pay 16 consultants to get the kind of great information I get from the Round Tables and the people in my group."
"ABL is the best business meeting series I have ever attended. It is a professional organization for CEOs and Presidents, where the Members bring the real day to day business cases to the meeting and share opinions and solutions. I do my best to participate every meeting I can."
"The big thing that ABL provides to us is that it’s companies of like interests, as opposed to other types of groups that have CEOs with maybe very divergent interests."
"The best thing for me about ABL are the great people in the Organization. It’s a caring group of people, they are very open in sharing their own problems, and that leads to an environment where you can share your problems back. And they’re non-judgmental. They’ll give you the best advise they can. You can take it or not."
"ABL is a wealth of information, knowledge, and camaraderie. You really get to trust the other Members, and you become more than business associates that meet once a month – you become friends."
