Sponsor Testimonials

The T.E.N team has been a foundational partner in the execution of high quality, demand generating virtual events. Marci's established network of executives and deep understanding of topics that are top-of-mind has helped guide our strategies as we develop quality relationships with companies and individuals across the country. The comprehensive promotion, flawless execution, and detailed reporting after each event enables our marketing team with the data needed to continue conversations and progress opportunities. As we plan for 2023, we look forward to expanding our partnership with private dinners and VIP programs.


Trish Casson
Senior Manager, Field Marketing

The ability to have a room of targeted c-level executives discussing our custom topic has been invaluable. The ISE® VIP dinners have allowed us to get our message across to our target accounts and contacts. On top of that, Marci and her team take care of all the logistics so our team can focus on building relationships. All of these reasons and more are why we continue to make the ISE® VIP Dinners a top priority each quarter.

We attend a lot of these kinds of cybersecurity conference events, but at the ISE® Programs, the level of attendees and their willingness to open up and talk with our team makes T.E.N.’s programs some of the best that we participate in.

[The ISE® Lions' Den & Jungle Lounge] wasn’t just a lightning round in front of a group of random investors or conference attendees. The judges of the event—the ISE® Lions—are your buyers. And they’re not just any buyers, they’re the Chief Security Officers of some of the largest enterprises in the world. The ISE® Lions’ Den gives you ten minutes with some of the highest-level buyers and influencers in your target market.

T.E.N.’s ISE® Programs and ISE® Private Dinners build communities for Security Executives both at the local and regional level. These communities foster information and idea sharing, while recognizing significant achievements by teams and individual InfoSec leaders. These programs enable participating members of the vendor community to become active and respected members of these communities by fostering better channels for communications and establishing trust.

The ISE® West Executive Forum and Awards was fantastic! It was very intimate and I was able to meet with a ton of high level executives at many of my prospect accounts. Carbon Black looks forward to future participation in the ISE® Programs.

The ISE® Programs and events that T.E.N. hosts are focused on networking and conversations between executives and solutions providers alike, far more than a simple show floor could offer. The connections we make at T.E.N.’s events carry over to other programs and meetings that allow our relationships to remain consistent—they know our faces, our names, and our solutions without needing to be refreshed. Those connections grow over time as we return to sponsor more ISE® Programs and events, and they are the key to establishing a customer bond that carries on toward successful business relationships.
