A day of private peer networking, fact-based insights, structured collaboration, subject matter expertise and practical outcomes to build digital resilience and enable organizational agility.

After a year facing their biggest challenges, our community of CIOs enter 2021 with improved reputations and the biggest opportunity yet to deliver on organisational priorities.

Technology has proven its value. Transformations and digitisation have accelerated. People have adopted new tools.

Digital and IT leaders are now empowered to execute a progressive technology strategy.

It is time to leverage the publicity to partner with business heads, and to create new models and revenues by building an efficient, integrated, re-platformed, digitised and data driven organisation.
