As digital initiatives have accelerated quickly, leaders must balance the right structures and strategies. Whether restructuring existing applications, infrastructure and security ecosystems or preempting new initiatives to bring services and applications to market faster than ever before, CIOs and CISOs are immersed in strategising and building support for these critical business objectives.

In this interactive conversation among peers, CIOs and CISOs will discuss their role in proactively contributing to organisational success.

Topic 1: Designing a holistic digital framework

  • How are you optimising for future resilience and not just immediate efficiency?
  • How are you evolving your operating model to deliver better speed, agility and innovation?
  • How are you shifting funding from less valuable initiatives to new channels or services?

Topic 2: Fostering a digital-first mindset

  • How have you evolved your cross-business partnerships in the past year?
  • What’s new or next in your organisational structure to support digital business?
  • How have you established credibility in your role to drive the enterprise in a digital direction?

18:45 - 19:15  Networking Break

19:15 - 20:30  Summary Discussion & Dinner

20:30 - 21:30  Social Hour

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
