Forbes and Chicago Tribune publish article about School for CEOs

21 October 2013

Roger Trapp, leadership writer, has contributed an article to Forbes based upon the first research report released by the School for CEOs, where aspiring and current CEOs learn from experienced business leaders.  The Chicago Tribune has also used the article.

In his article ‘It Really Is Lonely At The Top’, Roger highlights the “sense of loneliness” felt by many CEOs interviewed for the report. “A particular area seen as requiring attention was dealing with “the City”, that is investors and financial advisers” says Roger. “Related to this was the issue of dealing with the public, politicians and regulators” he adds. “However [he concludes], it is not all bad news. The study suggests that there is no single route to the top. Those interviewed came from a range of backgrounds and had a wide range of educations”. The article can be found at
