Leaders helping leaders
Passionate current and former CEOs of their own companies, ACETECH’s CEO Roundtable Facilitators are committed and trained to lead and foster constructive dialogue within each group. Each leader leverages their personal business experiences to bring the group’s culture to life and ensure adherence to the principles and core values that are the foundation of each group.

CEO, Metronome Growth Systems
If there is one person that embodies ACETECH, both as a CEO that benefited from our events and workshops early on, and later as a CEO that helped build ACETECH and support other CEOs, it’s Shannon Susko, successful tech entrepreneur and author of The Metronome Effect.
Shannon’s success was built on the tools and methodologies she developed and outlined in her book, The Metronome Effect, and which form the foundation of ACETECH’s Growth Strategy Program. And, she’s living proof that they work, with more than twenty years’ experience building and leading successful high-growth technology companies.
Shannon has been a driving force in the development of ACETECH’s Growth Strategy Program, ensuring that it encapsulates the most practical tools and proven methods. She has pulled together the best thinking and research of our time and structured it all into one rhythm, or pattern of activities, that CEOs can follow day-by-day, week-by-week, and year after year to lead better, reduce uncertainty and drive profitable growth.
As ACETECH Growth Architect, Shannon continues to lead and support the organization with her incredible commitment to helping other CEOs lead better and achieve profitable growth. Today you’ll find Shannon delivering the foundational elements of ACETECH’s Growth Strategy Program. She also serves as an ACETECH ambassador as she travels throughout North America to top tech conferences and organizations, inviting innovative thought-leaders back to Vancouver to share new ideas, tools and methodologies with our members.
