Phil-Meddings-with-Brad-Blaze-TEC-Conference

Trust is the most powerful ingredient of the TEC process. – Dr Phil Meddings

Where we Began

Better together

In1957, businessman Bob Nourse from Wisconsin, USA 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 this success, Dr Phil Meddings brought TEC to Australia in 1986 and began the first TEC group in Sydney. Phil’s vision was to help Australian and New Zealand 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 trusted peer advisory group meetings, one-to-one executive coaching and expert resources.
