An interview with Suki Mudan with VirtualBoard.com

  • You’ve established a blog for Business Owners and CEO’s.  Share with my readers what value proposition your blog brings to an expanding readership.

suki_formalThis is a wealth building forum for CEO’s and Business Owners seeking to build the equity value of their enterprise while creating a better work/life balance…and an occasional fun post on wine, food, world affairs, golf and humor. At the same time I want to enable my readers to leverage the wisdom of the group. By that I mean peer groups of CEO’s and business owners who can interact without having an individual agenda. I believe that no one of us is as smart as all of us.

Most importantly, the blog is for business owners/entrepreneurs with an end goal in mind and how they can learn from their peers to avoid many of the pitfalls in getting to their goal.

  • What is your background that makes you the expert in offering advice to business leaders?

I have 20+ years of business and management experience. I have lived through the ups and downs of business and entrepreneurship. Previously I was a management and strategy consultant with Booz Allen & Hamilton. I serve on the board of directors of early stage and growth stage ventures and I have been on the board of a public company. These experiences across several continents, industries and varying sizes of companies have given me a unique, rich and critical perspective of issues confronting executives today.

  • While your blog offers interesting and varying topics, your blog is a platform for You to offer several services – give us a brief explanation of those services.

Firstly, I am offering CEO coaching and mentoring help. Secondly I chair a peer group of CEO/Business owners that will also be a virtual group for shared knowledge and advice (leveraged wisdom). Advice and knowledge is also available from the sponsors (banks, law firms, CPA’s Wealth Managers) of the group.

I am also interested in serving on boards when appropriate.

Finally I am able to offer management and strategy consulting help.

  • What do you see as the most pressing business issues facing senior management today?

The most pressing issue facing senior management today is the rapidly changing paradigms in technology, communications and information. One very real challenge for many businesses as a result of these changes is the need to re-evaluate their business model and to regenerate rather than be swept aside.

  • You talk about driving a modest automobile so that you could provide a greater benefit to your children.  How does that apply in business today?

I basically relate that to investing in the future and taking the long-term view of your business. Hence my focus in my blog on planning for the future, having an exit strategy or end goal in mind and working on your business rather than working in your business.

  • What do you see as the three primary benefits one would have by reading your blog?
  1. Learn from the unbiased wisdom of your peers and have access to advice and guidance from professionals
  2. How and when to plan and execute a successful exit strategy focused on preparing for, negotiating and buying or selling a business.
  3. How to focus on preparing for, negotiating and buying or selling a business.
  • A number of my readers are in the media, so as we conclude this interview – what two things would you want them to know about the uniqueness of your service?
  1. Uniquely offer a peer group and coaching exclusively focused on preparing for negotiating and buying or selling a business.
  2. We are leveraging technology to minimize CEO’s time commitments yet with all the benefits of a traditional CEO peer group.
