Announcing Our Brand New

Directors' Forums


You work hard at implementation inside your organization. We give you an opportunity to learn best practices from the experiences of your peers in other companies.


Our forums are lead by world class facilitators working through a curriculum designed to help you be the best leader you can be without losing your love for GEEK.


We meet once month, every month with the same group of technical leaders going through the same challenges.  We hold each other accountable.



Engineering leaders are placed in forums of 6-8 peers with diverse backgrounds and experiences and from a wide range of technology companies.

  • Colloquiums via Zoom every 4 months (optional)

  • In Person Technical & Leadership Accelerators every 4 months (optional)

  • Shared learning.  Confidential Problem Solving
