A pleasant surprise and not what I expected from a CIO Conference. It was a nice change of pace to focus on softer skills vs the traditional technology initiatives. It was a great Forum with a more personal approach.

It's the best must attend event in your hometown.

Skozlowski, CIO - Cuyahoga

I have attended many CIO events in the past year and this was the most impactful. The content was relevant to the format encouraged networking.

The CIO Conference got me to think about the BIG issues. I was able to 'get out of the weeds' where I spend too much of my time, unfortunately.

Ryan Conolon, CIO

Premier Connects CIO Forum in Cleveland was refreshing. Premier Connects gets it, it's not just about the technology, we're all human. Great one day event.
