Welcoming Chiefs of Staff from all industries

The Chief of Staff role is gaining prominence within executive teams at an unprecedented rate.

We're gathering the top Chiefs of Staff across industries and fields to learn strategic company-building tactics, discuss the future of the role, and grow as leaders together.

Tech Startups


Higher Education




“The Chief of Staff Network’s events have always proven topical, timely, and informative; given that the Chief of Staff role can often be nebulous or without proximate peers, these events provide space for cross-pollination and information sharing with folks who have done similar work before.”

Winston Huang

Chief of Staff at Cityblock

The virtual CoS Network events I’ve attended have all been first-rate: informative, engaging, and community-building, which is so important given the times we’re all in. I expect that the first virtual CoS Summit will take this to the next level, and I’m looking forward to joining in.
