Executive Education & Collaboration

The primary value available to TTEC members is the various means for collaboration among the constituents. Companies requiring expert advice for key decisions and development objectives can often utilize the collective expertise of the council as an alternative to expensive consulting engagements. It is our experience that challenges facing our member companies are usually shared problems and that collaboration with members sharing goals, or have experience overcoming particular challenges, can be the route to the most cost effective resolution.

TTEC education & collaboration is conducted in the following forums:

  1. Monthly briefings on topics chosen and prioritized by the members
  2. Participation in TTEC discussions and blogs associated with the constituents priority issues
  3. Ad-hoc conference calls / meetings initiated by members with shared challenges
  4. Coordinated technology issue research resulting in templates and/or white papers accessible to all TTEC members
  5. Consulting engagements on common issues funded by a coalition of TTEC member

Higher Education Support

The Triangle Technology Executives Council offers mentoring and career development support to Computer Science students at local universities.  Volunteer executives from TTEC provide the resources and executive level experience to provide meaningful support to aspiring technology resources. This encompasses the following:

  1. Reviewing resumes and provided constructive feedback
  2. Conducting mock interviews, either in person or via telephone
  3. Conversations with students regarding career goals

Students participating in this effort gain a valuable perspective of the executives they will be facing when it comes time to enter the workforce. In the interim, they have the opportunity to gain internships from the relationships built through the TTEC mentoring process.

Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Support

TTEC supports the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Triangle. Our volunteer technology executive resources provide mentoring for entrepreneurs in technology focused start-up companies and enable the immediate social networking among other technology leaders in the region. We believe the partnerships, shared experiences, and expert perspectives on technologies of the TTEC membership can be an important aspect in the success of a technology start-up. In addition to mentoring, TTEC supports the Council for Entrepreneurial Development (CED), the local accelerators/incubators, entrepreneurial events, and the local angel funds/networks. A number of our members have worked or are working in startup companies.  TTEC also lends expertise and resources to regional Economic Development organizations.  We provide insight to businesses looking to possibly relocate and expand in the Triangle, and actively market our region as one of the best places for business and living in the United States.
