WHO WE ARE
The Technology Executives Networking Group strives to help senior-level IT executives help each other by making it easier for us to meet one another and develop lasting, professional relationships, and eventually, friendships.
We are naturally inclined to help our friends by sharing our experiences, expertise, contacts and support, whether they need help building a business case for a project, selecting a vendor, learning a new technology, or landing a great job. Even at our darkest moments, there is something about reaching out to help a friend that makes both us and them feel better, and ultimately causes them to reach out to help us in return.
This willingness to help one another forms the basis of our networking philosophy. By helping one another in these ways, we build a bond of friendship and trust that will allow us to rely on each other in even the most difficult situations.
The benefits that TENG members realize from belonging to the network can be virtually limitless. However, these benefits are usually directly proportional to a member’s willingness to help other members. A few examples of these benefits include:
- Access to new career opportunities
- Information about and introductions to target organizations
- Vendor information, contacts, and unbiased references
- Workshops, presentations, and networking events sponsored by local chapters
- Special interest groups which facilitate member interaction on topics of common interest.
- A network of peers who are willing to share experiences, advice, and support
