Session Sponsorship

Today, the expectations on a CIO are great. CIOs need to be skilled business leaders with strong cross-functional skills, have global experience and possess exceptional interpersonal and soft skills. Additionally, they need to have the ability to be forward-looking, to provide innovation through technology, to re-design business processes and be proactive in aligning business and IT.


The CIO Roundtable Series provides the best venue for CIOs to further develop their skills and knowledge base. It serves as the premier place for Information Technology executives to interact with peers in a non-selling and non-competitive forum.
