Going beyond technology to drive transformation
27th November 2019  ¦  Army & Navy Club  ¦  18:00-21:00

The Discussion

With digital transformation in full flow, CIOs and other technology leaders must look beyond technology to deliver the success their organisations desire. Digital leadership is necessary for successful growth and CEOs and their boards are looking to the Modern CIO to fill this gap. However, many CIOs still find themselves in a reactive mode, weighed down by traditional responsibilities and infrastructure. How do you drive digital leadership and cultural change without taking your eye off the technical ball?


Technology is now a commodity. Having a flexible, adaptive, cloud-based infrastructure isn’t a killer differentiator, it’s your entry stake to the competition. Focusing here only gives you short term advantage. Developing the right partnerships is the key to long term success. If this topic is on your agenda, join us on 27th November to discuss with your peers:


  • What are boards looking for from the Modern Technology Leader?
  • How do you build the right team and culture to aid digitalisation, growth and risk taking?
  • What are the top three characteristics to look for in a long-term technology partner?
