Coming Soon

The CIO Executive Summit agendas are driven by the mission-critical priorities identified among the community. Each agenda is uniquely crafted ‘by CIOs, for CIOs,’ and will be available closer to the gathering. All topics and sessions will be inspired by the following themes.

Accelerating High Growth and Digitally-Driven Outcomes

The demand for growth and benefit realization is high, as CIOs look to capture the outcomes that have come from their digital initiatives. In 2023, CIOs will look to tighten their spending while leading in high growth mode.

Thriving through Volatility - Empowering People, Resiliency and Insights

In 2023, CIOs must continue to be hyper-vigilant about their people’s needs, cyber threats, and capturing value from digital investments, while operating in an uncertain economic environment.

Orchestrating Change - Influencing Culture and Creating Value

As the enterprise becomes faster and smarter, the need for change management and leadership from the office of the CIO has increased. IT leaders are focused on influencing a digitally-rich culture that captures faster, more impactful value for the enterprise.
