Testimonials

“… I stood as the Vice-President for the [CSUSM]MIS Society last Fall. The opportunities presented by SIM [San Diego] … played a prodigious part in my professional success… I was reviewing my notes from the 2019 [SIM] San Diego Technology Executive Leadership Summit and found information that related directly to a business problem I was trying to solve in the AI field. It helped me identify crucial gaps to the organizations continued success and ultimately reach breakeven. I can confidently say the exposure and knowledge I gained from SIM San Diego prepared me to be the effective, resilient leader I am today. I applaud your dedication to raising the next generation of IT leaders… Thank you, I cannot emphasize enough how much of an impact you have had on my professional development. As a leader, I am continuously learning and growing. I am excited to see what is in store for the future of the [CSUSM] MIS Society and SIM San Diego as a whole… ”

Sponsor Testimonials

“The San Diego Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM) is an elite collection of top technology executives, who all are dedicated to improving the community in which they serve. While most CIOs and CISOs are difficult to reach amidst their organizational responsibilities, every leader present at these events is engaged and willing to learn from one another. The speaker quality and topics are relevant to forward-thinking information executives. I’m proud to support this chapter, and intend to maintain these connections fostered at their quarterly events”

Michael Bush | Field Director | Darktrace

"As a recent sponsor of a SIM San Diego's event, not only did I experience the caliber of it's membership, but the collaboration, intellectual curiosity and generosity of the organization. Facing 2020 challenges of virtual-only meetings, the SIM board used their creativity to put together an engaging, relevant program for senior technology executives. Their commitment to supporting each other and the surrounding community make this an organization that I aspire to be a part of for years to come."
