What we're about

We are a FREE mastermind group designed for customer success leaders who have people management responsibility, who consult a paid-client around customer success, or who are responsible for standing up a customer success function. We meet monthly for 60 minutes prior to and at the same venue as the Colorado Customer Success Meetup (usually on a Thursday). To ensure participants receive value from meeting in small groups, the group is invite-only for up to 12 people per event. Once a member, we ask for three commitments: 1) RSVP when you can attend, 2) Read about the participants in advance, and 3) Honor the guiding principles of the event. Are you looking to connect with, share challenges, and learn from peers leading CS? Request to join today!

What others are saying. Five out of five respondents gave the mastermind a 100 NPS after the first two events.

• “Smart folks willing help and offer practical advice”

• “Great discussion on topics that I am interested in"

• “Appreciated that it was a small group for CS leaders”

• “Small, open format, with people willing to share and help others”

• "I think there is a great variety of experience, skills and perspectives in the room - I've taken away actionable learning from each session so far. I also enjoy having the hosts join us each time."

Why we meet and what we do exactly. We meet because we trust each other to share and solve challenges specific to customer success leadership, as it is a relatively new business function. We value confidentiality. We develop ourselves through input and advice from each other. We learn from others’ skills and experiences. We are a network of people who are willing to help each other. There is no commitment to join. Anyone is welcome to apply. Approved participants are invited to attend, dependent on space availability. We split into groups of five, including one named facilitator. To ensure enough floor time for participants, we split into groups of five and ensure direct competitors are not grouped together. There is no fee to apply or participant. Participating in the group is free. Here's a sample agenda:

• Welcome and introductions (5-mins)

• Individual updates answering what are you working on, what did you learn, and what do you need help with? (5-mins)

• Deep dive into into a specific challenge that one member is having and offer up actionable potential solutions (20-mins)

• Open forum to address any major outstanding challenges (10-mins)

Are you a fit? What’s the criteria for evaluating participants?

• Managing CSMs

• Representing a paid client (CS consultant)

• Building a CS function from the ground up

Apply now. If you are not a fit, you’re welcome to reapply when your situation changes. To ensure participants contribute and receive value from meeting in small groups, the group is invite-only. If you are a fit, you will receive a follow-up email, a calendar invite, and an email reminder two-business days prior to the event.

Mastermind for Customer Success Leaders in Colorado

Online event

Objective. To learn about the purpose of the meeting, see the "what we're about" section on the main page of the meetup group.

Format. For the first 10 minutes, everyone briefly shares their responsibility, tech stack, and the question they would like the group to discuss. If the group is larger than six people, we break out into two groups. The small groups address one question at a time, listen, ask questions to promote problem-solving, offer actionable solutions, share experience, etc. In the end, we reconvene as a group to share insights gained or lingering unanswered questions for offline discussion.

Please note: 1) If you can't make it, please let the organizers know in advance. This helps us keep introductions efficient and limited to the first 10 minutes.
2) In the meeting, we agree to share evenly, be encouraging, selflessly help others, and keep everything confidential.
