Let's Celebrate the Holidays, Network & Party!
Our annual holiday party! Lots of food, lots of people, lots of networking, lots of holiday cheer. Celebrating the third anniversary of our re-launch, and decades of Engineering Leadership goodness. Our YouTube channel is now a year and a half rich with content: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVe3Xf5B3bGE4AhMBpOPANQ Enjoy the informal party atmosphere to be (or become!) part of the community; and feel free to let any of the SVELC Co-Chairs know your ideas about future SVELC meetings - topics you’d like to learn or speakers you’d like to hear from. You can even volunteer to be one of the dozen-plus volunteers who self-organize to make SVELC meetings happen month in and month out! Remember our mottoes: Silicon Valley: Where relationships last longer than jobs. and... Become the engineering leader you've always wanted to work for. Finally, did you know there's manufacturing - big manufacturing - on Page Mill Road? Varian host John van Heteren will reprise last year's popular (and amazing) plant tour of where and how Varian's massive and leading-edge cancer treatment machines are made.

What we're about

Meet other local current or aspiring innovative innovation leaders who are interested in engineering leadership as a strategic competency. This community is a vital part of any technical leader's career strategy.

Our mutual objective:

To become the kind of leaders we've always wanted to work for.

Discuss the full gamut of engineering leadership: inspiring, aligning, co-creating, communicating, speaking, writing, values, learning, complimenting, appreciating, recognizing, teaching, strategizing, chunking-down, improving, bootstrapping, being on time, networking, team-building, direction-setting, career planning, project developing, training, certification, recruiting, organization structure, inter-departmental relations, adapting, retrospecting, ... the works.

Remember: Relationships last longer than jobs in Silicon Valley.
