Member Experience

An experience designed to help advanced leaders not yet in the C-Suite, strive to thrive!

We know so much is on your shoulders.  You and 100M+ of your peers are accountable for simultaneously executing the strategies of the C-suite as well as managing more junior staff (not to mention having a personal life too).  There has been little support for this level of senior leaders . . . UNTIL NOW!

Why should I join NOTABLE?

There are few world-class leadership networks designed for advanced leaders who are not yet in the VP/C-suite.

  • Think you’re too busy?  NOTABLE is designed to be easily integrated into your daily routine.  You are given pre-notice of all events so you can ringfence time on your calendar.  And many interactions are not limited to core business hours.  Net-net, if you can participate 2-4 hours per month, you will definitely receive a concrete return on time invested and will be an ideal member. 
  • Have questions that are begging for answers?  NOTABLE is for you.
  • Feeling alone at your company?  NOTABLE is for you.
  • Desire to open doors of new opportunity?  NOTABLE is for you.
  • Want to avoid blind spots and expertise gaps?  NOTABLE is for you.
  • Have decision fatigue?  NOTABLE is for you.

NOTABLE provides you answers, advice and development that you can’t get on Google.  Go ahead and apply.  It’s the right thing to do.

What is NOTABLE's Fee? And when is it due?

For 2025, the fee is $4750 for the 12-month experience. This equates to less than $400 per month!

Our Membership Team and Board look forward to reviewing the credentials of interested, criteria-meeting candidates who complete the initial membership application.

After the applications are reviewed, selected applicants will receive their first onboarding instructions.  In addition, payment options will be sent.  All final payments must be received before the LAUNCH event, as per onboarding instructions.

Know that our fees are competitive, reasonable, and usually able to be easily covered by your employer.  For those who desire to self-pay, payment plans will be available.

When is the next group of NOTABLE cohorts launching?

We launch new cohort groups twice a year.  If eligible, go ahead and complete the application process so that we may complete the process and queue you up for the upcoming launch.

Who leads NOTABLE?

NOTABLE is a leader development community powered by Shockingly Different Leadership.  It’s Chief Visionary Officer and leader is Karan Ferrell-Rhodes, who works with a team over over 125+ staff and executive coaches/consultants to bring NOTABLE’s development experiences to life.

Where is NOTABLE's headquarters?

Our headquarters is in Marietta (Atlanta), Georgia.  However, many of our staff and faculty are leveraging hybrid and remote work arrangements and are located throughout the world.

How does the NOTABLE application process work?

A candidate needs to complete the inital application form and submit to NOTABLE to process. No fees are required at this stage of the process.

The application is submitted to the Membership Committee and the Membership Board for review. Once a candidate has been approved for membership, they will then get a formal invitation packet and proceed with Member Onboarding.

Must I renew my membership every year?

Yes.  However, after completing your first year in NOTABLE, there are tiered alternatives of nominal costs, to remain an active member of the network.  Believe us, you won’t want to miss out!

Whom do I contact if I have questions?
