The CIO Executive Council was founded to serve the evolving, challenging, and demanding role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO). The CEC leverages our community, thought-leaders, and industry professionals to provide the tools and resources that bring the CIO, and their team, to the next level.
The Executive Network is a vibrant, members-only community of advisors and global business leaders activating empowerment and transformation through a distinctive blend of programming and events. Utilize our executive connections, brand management services, and development tools to empower your decisions, elevate your team and become a future-first leader of a future-ready organization.
Pathways is a leadership development program focused on bringing real world solutions to real problems through the use of CIO facilitators, coaching, active group discussions, and relevant tools and strategies – all curated and facilitated by experienced business leaders and influencers. Elevate your team by leveraging their strengths and identifying specific areas for personal and professional development, and strengthen your leadership bench to accelerate IT’s value within the organization.
Strategic Enterprise Services (SES) provide highly customized, interactive learning sessions designed to impact your team’s performance by delivering the strategies and tools necessary to effect business in your organization today. Our sessions provide relevant curriculum modules that serve as a starting point for current initiatives, as well as future focus areas. Sample topics include: Change Management, Stakeholder Relations, Strategic Orientation and Design Thinking.
“I joined the Council to contribute. I believe that we, as CIOs, have a responsibility to develop and grow the future of this profession. I want to generate a next generation of CIOs that have the business background they need to be indispensable to the organizations that hire them. "
