Key Words:

Brain Food




The notion of a "refresher" is that of presenting viewers a variety of interesting material to keep abreast of latest developments in leadership, to update or renew important concepts and practices, to review and benefit from timeless wisdom, and to "sharpen the saw" to better master the art and science of leadership.

The theme of "brain food for business" relates to mindfulness - to gain new perspectives and greater awareness with articles and insights that might just "twist your head" a bit to see your reality in new ways and to identify new possibilities. More mindful leaders can contribute to the development of more human, respectful, socially responsible, conscious, caring and more profitable enterprise, and that is the ultimate purpose of this journal.

Articles on a very broad range of topics are featured as leaders need to learn as much as they can about almost everything, and learn faster. Think "refresher" and "brain food" and it opens up many possibilities to present your material to a growing international audience. Articles featured include longer 'white papers,' research results, new approaches and concepts, and checklists, "tools," quick insights and executive summaries.

Authoring experience or having your articles previously published is not a requirement, although it may be a very important element of your bio for viewers. Many of our best articles have been written by business leaders and by front line and mid-level managers to share their personal insights and experiences with the world. Write an engaging article or story and we will feature it.

It is expected that articles submitted will require no or minimal editing for grammar, spelling or clarity of presentation for viewers. All articles are reviewed in detail as they are formatted and will be delayed or rejected if extensive editing is required. Editing services are available for a nominal fee.

Attributions are important to give proper credit to all direct quotations, paraphrased statements and borrowed ideas. Readers should be properly informed about the ideas and language that are the authors' and those that are drawn from others. Citing the source within the body of the text and/or providing general references at the end of the article works well.

We have featured articles that have been published in other major, trade, and local publications with proper attribution, so long as the contributor retains reprint rights. However, preference will be given to original articles to be published first in The CEO Refresher. Articles available on your web site and not otherwise published would be considered original material. All articles featured in The CEO Refresher article format will be archived on the site - in an appropriate topic archive and listed in the index of authors. Please advise if you do not want your article to be archived on The CEO Refresher site. If you have articles fully formatted with pdf files and images we can link to your article as a "Special Feature." The "Special Feature" articles are a one-off in the current issue and will not be archived.


Please submit your work as an attached word or text file via e-mail with all elements and desired formatting included if possible. Text directly inserted into an e-mail also works well. Where possible please limit the use of tables and large size graphics. To ensure accurate resolution for graphics please include .gif or .jpg files for the images or charts you would like to feature.

Please include a brief caption for the article and a bio and reference to your related works or professional services. Please also include links to your web site if desired. We suggest you not feature your e-mail address in your bio given the current state of spam however, we will do so if you prefer it to be included. Please also include a photo of the author(s) in .jpg format sized to 65 x 90 pixels. There is an opportunity to feature book covers in the bio, and if desired, please include a .jpg image also sized to 65 X 90 pixels.


A preview will always be prepared for your review and approval before publishing. Please review the preview in terms of content, grammar and format and advise of any changes necessary as soon as possible. Changes can be made at any time to ensure the highest quality.


Contributors retain all rights and copyrights will be cited in the contributor's name. All articles submitted and published are on a non-exclusive basis - you are free to submit your work to other publishers at any time. If your work is first published in The CEO Refresher we request that you include a reference to The CEO Refresher in any future publication i.e. "originally published in The CEO Refresher - ." You could also use the following graphic on your site:

In general, for unsolicited articles we are working two to three months in advance of the publishing date. We have a considerable backlog of excellent articles and do our best to feature the best as soon as practical. Please have patience and feel free to send a "nudge" to inquire of the latest status of your contribution. We do advance original material to be published first in The CEO Refresher and always hold several slots open for regular contributors, and Insight/Thought Leaders.


In contributing to The CEO Refresher the contributor agrees that The CEO Refresher and the editors of The CEO Refresher have the right to grant permission to reprint and have no liability whatsoever in granting such permission to reprint the contributor's work. All legalize aside, we are committed to providing our contributors the best exposure possible in the current issue and archives of The CEO Refresher and in other high quality and appropriate international publications.
