TEC Chair: Chief Executive Program

‘My goal is to make every business and CEO/business owner in my group develop both themselves and their businesses. CEOs and business owners are far more productive (and certainly happier) when they can share their doubts and ideas with somebody who’s done the job but has no personal stake in the outcome, other than the satisfaction of mentoring and growing together. This is the foundation stone of TEC and why I believe in it so much.’

Lianne Cretney-Barnes professional life has spanned sectors as diverse as science, education, finance, retail, hospitality, property development and not-for-profit associations.

She currently have a portfolio career, which includes running her own business, Board Connexions.
