17:30 - 18:45  Discussion Topics

Strengthening Partnerships Across the C-Suite to Accelerate Digital Business

CIOs find themselves striking a challenging balance of budget constraints and increasing demands from the organisation. This, combined with an ongoing pressure for greater efficiency and security, means that IT leaders must focus on transparency and communication across the C-suite to provide real outcomes through digital technology investments that drive value. But with the ever-increasing complexity of digital business and AI innovation, scaling governance and enabling consistent ways of working can be tough to deliver.

To be successful, CIOs must show their business partners that secure modernisation is a shared responsibility. With collaborative business goals and agile ways of working, executives can co-deliver initiatives that grow the bottom line while modernising the organisation.

Join your peers to discuss how to drive value and true collaboration for sustained success.

Topic of discussion:

  • How are you currently working across your C-suite to overcome budget, talent and capacity constraints? How does this change in the face of resource scarcity?

  • What strategies are you employing to communicate risk? What do you say to colleagues with low risk-tolerance when it comes to technology investments?

  • How are you collaborating with fellow leaders to optimise operating models to better manage and deliver digital capabilities? What still needs to be improved?

  • How are you adapting your approach to advise on safe and secure practices across the enterprise, especially in a business landscape that demands rapid solution innovation and modernisation?

18:45 - 19:15  Networking Break

19:15 - 20:30  Summary Discussion & Dinner
