I thought it was an excellent event and met my expectations. The sessions were informative and outside the box.

Jim Bish, CIO - Hussey-Libertas Copper/Patriarch Partners

It's refreshing to attendee a CIO event that is targeted at networking and enriching the attendees and not just focusing on selling a product or service. The honestly of the panelists made the sessions relatable, no matter what field or background you come from.

Jan Kubiska, Director of Information Technology - Pressley Ridge

We spend so much time with out heads buried in our work. It is energizing to pick my head up, network with my peers in an environment that fosters collaboration and community, and grow as a leader.



We have worked diligently to put together a stimulating and focused agenda, bringing together experts, visionaries and professionals from the IT industry. We look forward to sharing this exciting conference with you.

Opening Keynote Experiential Storytelling: Sharing Your Business Case Story with Power and Impact

Storytelling is one of the oldest and practical methods of expressing our beliefs and experiences. Everyone demonstrates an affinity to or an intense dislike of the way in which stories and messages are communicated in both our personal and professional lives. So why do we struggle so much in technology story telling? It’s simple…too much tech and not enough context! Today’s leaders need better ways to amplify their messages that create serious value if they want to enlist fans and supporters to important initiatives. A technology leader’s communications skills don’t just make a difference, they are they difference! In Jeff Day’s keynote, he will explore why great storytelling makes a difference and share insider tips to help make you and your messages more effective.
