The CIO Leadership Event Speaker Line-Up Included:


Game-changing Ideas for Business Success

The CIO Leadership Event breaks new ground in 2013 by engaging the audience in every single session of the 2 1/2 day agenda. The event experience models the customer engagement, social and gamification strategies that are driving new levels of customer engagement and competitive advantage at today’s leading companies.

Because CIOs are now business leaders as much as technology leaders, the conference will draw compelling context from cross-industry CEOs, COOs and CMOs. Interwoven throughout the entire event will be peer problem-solving discussions—Idea Labs—in conjunction with main-stage keynote and panel presentations, making this a truly interactive, collaborative experience. Tying the Idea Labs together will be a friendly multi-day team competition, simulating the social gaming strategies used by the most progressive companies to engage customers.

Finally, the event will be goal-oriented in terms of generating action items that live on after the event: Each day’s discussions build toward a set of shared takeaway ideas that serve as input for future strategy. There are no attendees at The CIO Leadership Event, only participants.
Join us!

Top 10 Reasons to Participate

1.    Idea Labs: Experience first-hand the power of “gamification” by being part of a team competing to generate the most innovative ideas throughout the event. Win or lose, your reward will be more great takeaway ideas than have ever been collected at any two-day event.

2.    Continuous Interaction:
Workshops, discussion groups, and town-hall dialog are the rule rather than the exception. Instead of the
audience asking speakers questions, speakers will ask you the questions—how to solve business challenges and capitalize on opportunities. There are no attendees at this event, only participants.

3.    Three Streams: All sessions map to three topic streams that are proven game changers only when applied in tandem: Business Strategy, People Power and Technology Differentiators.

4.    Business Perspective Foremost:
CIOs must be business leaders first and foremost. And so this conference will be a business event, anchored by the compelling context and perspective of chief executive and marketing officers, among others.
