Coffee Fest & Helm Society Debut Virtual CEO Roundtable

Seattle, WA. – One of the biggest advantages of attending any trade show is to talk, interact and network with likeminded acquaintances and one’s peers.  Today, Coffee Fest is pleased to announce the new COFFEE FEST & HELM SOCIETY CEO VIRTUAL ROUNDTABLES to be conducted by phone each month and/or quarter.  The Coffee Fest/Helm Society CEO Roundtables have been created to extend the Coffee Fest community beyond the physical shows to offer beneficial interaction among attendees outside the three days spent at a physical Coffee Fest whenever or wherever they may need it. “We really wanted to create the place where the business owners that attend Coffee Fest can turn in between shows to learn, brainstorm and solve business related challenges,” said Coffee Fest CEO David Heilbrunn.


The topics of the monthly virtual roundtables will cover everything from “building your brand” to “scaling your business.”  In addition to the telephone meetings, members will have access to the online Coffee Fest/Helm Society community 24/7/365.  This network of professionals is designed to support anyone from roasters and manufacturers to cafe owners who will learn from their peers and interact with guest experts on an array of relevant and current business topics.


This Coffee Fest coffee industry CEO peer group opportunity has the power to transform an owners business and it’s very affordable.  Dues to be part of the Coffee Fest/Helm Society CEO community which includes the quarterly roundtables start at just $25/month or $200 for the year. In addition to David Heilbrunn (CEO – Coffee Fest) additional founding members of the CEO community include David Morris CEO Dillanos Coffee Roasters, Mike Spence CEO Selby Soft, Gail Gastelu Owner, The Tea House Times and Melind John President of Josuma Coffee Company.


About Coffee Fest

Coffee Fest has been celebrating coffee long before coffee was “hot”. In 1992, they gathered coffee professionals together in Seattle for their first coffee festival. After several years of hosting thriving consumer events, Coffee Fest turned its focus toward the specialty coffee, gourmet tea and alternative beverage industry bringing retailers, distributors and manufacturers together for its first retail “trade only show” in 1998. With a mission to help attendees build and refine their specialty coffee businesses, they coupled a relevant educational program with a friendly, informative, and enjoyable trade show floor creating a successful show that serves as a touchstone for many in the specialty coffee industry. Today Coffee Fest produces three trade shows annually, strategically positioned in the eastern, central and western United States.


About Helm Society

The Helm Society emerged from CEO, Josh Klenoff’s experiences in entrepreneurship, coaching, facilitation and finance. CEOs asked for a forum where they could meet more regularly. Josh, ignited more by creating wealth through the Roundtable than by managing wealth through the bank, created the Helm Society. Members span the full gamut of industries and range from small to Fortune 500.
