This CIO event has provided a great forum with which we can exchange ideas and discuss business challenges with peers, but also to hear solutions to opportunities you have yet to face.

John Janthor - Radwell International

Exceeded my expectations for a virtual CIO forum, well planned and executed with no disruptions. Topics and speakers were very enriching, virtually engaging and thought provoking. Talk Shifts tips were practical yet profound, this alone was a true gift to take away from the event.

Kevin Wilkins, CIO - City of Fort Collins

Agenda | YOU SURVIVED, NOW LET'S THRIVE

11am – 2pm EST

Welcome & Introductions From Reset to Thrive: How to Lead a Growth Journey

  • Host
    Dr. Rebecca Homkes, Lecturer, Director, London Business School, Strategic Management Centre
Uncertainty challenges leadership teams to adapt, and to navigate their organizations through a journey of surviving (stabilizing the business with a growth mindset) to resetting (updating the existing direction and plans) in order to thrive or dramatically grow and prosper. Dr. Homkes will kick off our discussions by discussing the Survive Reset Thrive journey and how to lead the transition from reset to thrive. She will share stories of successful companies that are building robust organizations for growth and provide insights of how you can do the same! Then she will introduce her B.L.A.S.T framework that describes successful high-growth companies and their teams prepare for a successful growth path. She will challenge us as CIOs to embrace the challenge and build organizations ready to blast off and grow!

Opening Keynote A Closer Look at 2021s Most Innovative CIOs

Globally and across a range of industries, 2020 took existing patterns of activity for CIOs and sped them up radically and unexpectedly. Some organizations were more prepared than others. However, a select few overachieving teams solved these challenges in remarkably creative ways. In this session, we will dig deeper on strategies that allow for companies to not only survive, but thrive. In addition, we will explore companies who ‘broke the mold’ in 2020 and the strategies they plan to adopt as they take on 2021.

Closing Remarks Are you Ready to Grow?

  • Host
    Dr. Rebecca Homkes, Lecturer, Director, London Business School, Strategic Management Centre
We will pull together key insights and end with a call to action including recapping shared guidance on how CIOs can lead their organizations, accelerate learning and thrive through 2021 and beyond.
