Who we are

Leading executives to achieve more than they ever imagined possible

The year was 1957. Robert Nourse, a businessman from Wisconsin, met with four fellow chief executives to put a simple but revolutionary idea to the test: will sharing knowledge and experience help and improve the performance of their businesses?

Seeing the success of TEC, Dr Phil Meddings brought TEC to Australia in 1986 and began the first TEC group in Sydney. Phil’s vision was to help Australian CEOs equal or better the best in the world and boost their leadership development. He focused on business leaders because he believed they determine the success of the company, which in turn, impacts the employees, the wider community, and the economy.

To do this, the founding leaders of TEC designed programs to drive growth both in TEC members and their organisation. Members have access to high-value perspectives through exclusive meetings with their advisory boards and world-class speakers in TEC events.
