RI CIO Forum
October 30, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Join with other CIOs from a broad range of industries, for an interactive evening with Martha Heller, CEO of Heller Search Associates. Martha Heller’s brand new keynote address, “What it Means to be a Transformational IT Leader,” inspires CIOs and their senior leadership teams to embrace their roles as enterprise leaders in the digital era. Today, the most successful CIOs think in terms of “products”, not “projects”, and transform their teams from order-takers into co-creators who work in lockstep with their business partners. Transformational IT leaders understand that while they are accountable for systems, systems is not their job. Their job is to create a vision for the company’s future. Throughout her talk, Martha illustrates her messages with real transformation stories from some of the world’s most successful companies and with highly relevant lessons learned from the CIOs who led those transformations. Those who register before October 18, will receive a complimentary copy of her book, compliments of Bridge Technical Talent. This event is intended only for CIO/CTOs.
