TEC group experience :

TEC 2 is a multi-award winning group with a balance of business-owner CEOs and corporate CEOs from a wide variety of industries. The members, all graduates or professionally qualified, also have an interesting range of business and personal experiences which they share readily with the other members. Peter, an award winner himself (including TEC Chair of the Year in 2008), ascribes the success of the group to the strength and motivation of the members of TEC 2 and the on-going support from group alumni members.
