2023 Central Connecticut CIO Executive Leadership Summit

Resilient Leadership: Dreaming Big and Delivering a Secure Digital Agenda

Inflationary pressures and other macro-economic challenges are creating headwinds for technology executives and fellow members of the C-suite to execute on and achieve strategic goals through 2023. The fast-changing socio-economic landscape is prompting technology executives to become more creative than ever in a cost-conscious environment and to draw upon authentic and inclusive leadership skills to inspire their teams. Meanwhile, tech leaders will need to remain laser focused on new ransomware, phishing and crypto mining attacks amidst budgetary pressures.
Here are the four prevailing leadership and technology trends that HMG Strategy will be focusing on throughout its 2023 Executive Leadership Summit Series:

  • Innovation & Invention to Spur Revenue Growth
  • Fostering World-Class Collaboration and Teaming
  • Harnessing Advanced Technology to Drive Cost Reduction
  • Securing a Global Digital Agenda

Global economic challenges are creating unique opportunities for business technology executives to foster a collaborative culture, embrace fresh innovative approaches, and develop strong partnerships to leverage hot technologies such as AI, ChatGPT, cloud platforms and cyber technologies to securely move the needle for the business and win in tumultuous times.

Where: Glastonbury Boathouse, 252 Welles Street, Glastonbury, CT 06033
