Connecting the World's Chiefs of Staff

Capped at only three hundred new members per year, the Chief of Staff Association puts you in the company of the world’s most connected, innovative and influential gatekeepers.

Although some organisations possess extensive local business contacts and others have far-reaching international connections, seldom few have both. This breakdown occurs because maintaining relationships across multiple regions and sectors simultaneously requires commitment and assets that even the most well-resourced organisations could only hope to achieve.

We assist members to navigate borders quickly and bypass traditional impediments to solve complex coordination problems and facilitate economic diplomacy. In addition, a comprehensive engagement platform extends members reach and capacity well beyond their organisations including, CSA Connect and CSA Certification.

CSA Engagement Platforms

Available exclusively to members, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, CSA Command provides connectivity between the world’s largest companies, governments, family offices and diplomats.
