Agenda


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.

Mastering the Art of Change and Adaptability

Constant change has influenced business at a greater scale than ever before, and CIOs are learning the art of adapting to these transitions with ease. In 2022, CIOs continue to build agile environments, modifying and evolving to whatever comes their way.

Accelerating High Growth and a Data-First Mindset

As the economy makes a comeback, enterprises across the globe have moved into high growth mode. Data & analytics remains a high priority for CIOs, as they look for new opportunities to expand business and reach their customers in new and unique ways.

Empowering Talent, Protecting the Enterprise

CIOs must balance two ongoing challenges - securing the enterprise and building a robust team of digital professionals. Thriving organizations hope to stabilize their cyber defenses, while growing the skills needed to advance the digital enterprise.

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