As a busy executive, there are no limits to demands on my time and attention. I am extremely selective about how I choose to allocate my most precious resource and I can honestly say that every moment spent participating in ECN over the past year has provided a return on time invested like few other organizations can. The quality, generosity, talent, and widely varying experiences of the ECN netowrk is unparalleled and the content and networking opportunities with global executive decision makers are unmatched in my experience. I sincerely look forward to every event and offering and I can recommend joining ECN without hesitation.

The Executive Council Network is a dynamic and forward looking group of creative thinkers who are on the cutting edge, defining what's next in business, innovation and technology. It would be a challenge to find another group with the diversity and expertise that has been gathered here. One of the few truly value based invitation only networks I've had the opportunity to be a part of and wow! The people are authentic and amazing!

ECN is the cheat code on how to be an executive – ultimately, it makes success in reach because people who have done it are in reach. One of the focus areas was to advance your career as an executive and we discussed how being on a board was a great option for career-pathing. Through Wendy, Michael Soileau and ECN, I was able to land a spot on board for the Global Center for Business at University of Texas McCombs School of Business!

First off, the summit was absolutely fantasic. I was fortunate enough to participate with Henry and the team in the summit during December of 2019. Let me just say that from that time I have been exceedingly impressed with all that's been accomplished. ECN is doing exceptional work and it adds real value!

I have always been involved with several business and networking groups but the ECN sessions I have particpated in have been refreshingly unique. The quality and candor of panelists are thought provoking which make for meaninful exchanges... My initial impression was, "Wow, this is different, I want to be a part of this."...
