Spotlight on the 2019 Stamford CIO Executive Leadership Summit    


FWSIM and HMG collaborated on producing a great CIO Summit on October 30th.  This is an annual event for the last 11 years with HMG as the conference planner and is one we work hard at to ensure our members and IT friends get to have a full day’s immersion in innovative and disruptive technologies and career building themes.

The theme this year was “Enterprise 2025” – Accelerating the Digital Roadmap to Survive and Thrive.

Highlights of the day included 3 keynote speakers including Jim Carroll, speaking on how “technology is oxygen” and gave examples of businesses that are innovating with technology throughout the enterprise to gain competitive advantage with their customers.

We also heard from the President of Nokia Bell Labs on 5G and where it will take us, and we ended the day with David Pogue, Technology Columnist and TV Correspondent on digital technologies – some funny and some very useful.  He amazed those people who did not know him, when a large piano was wheeled into the room and he proceeded to sing an original song on technology to a Beatles tune!  What a way to end the day!  It just does not get better than this!

Throughout the day, there were panels and speakers on topics including Customer-Centricity, the Benefits of Diversity in the Workplace, how CIO’s can “Rev up to Serve on Boards”, Paving the Digital Runway and Empowering Digital Innovation to Secure your Enterprise.

There were numerous networking breaks and opportunities to meet new people and see friends/colleagues. 

We thank you for attending and hope you found value in the sessions and enjoyed the chance to meet colleagues and make new friends.  For those who could not join us, there will be next year! 

A big shout out to all the FSWIM members, HMG teams and sponsors who made this happen!  What a job well-done!!
