CIO & IT Leaders Symposium

It has been a monumentally disruptive year for organisations globally. With the pandemic abruptly making digital customer interfaces and remote working capability essential, many were forced to entirely rethink and digitise how they operate and do business. The CIO has quickly become paramount to a company’s survival and success as they help the business navigate these complexities and strive to gain an IT-driven competitive edge.

But as we move into the second half of 2021, reflections are being made on the lessons learnt from how the pandemic accelerated pre-existing trends in the implementation of digital technology, and how CIO’s are beginning to refocus on creating future proof enterprises that can be agile to the continually evolving needs of their organisation.

The CIO & IT Leaders Symposium will balance the strategic and tactical by digging into leading CIO’s lessons learned from the IT response to COVID-19 and will deliver insights on how they plan to support enterprise recovery. The symposium is conceived to be a knowledge and networking platform panning wide-ranging industries, businesses and vertical functions. It is curated for business heads, senior IT, technology and innovation heads exploring expansion plans, streamlining solutions and keen on learning versatile delivery models to address growth requirements.

Connect with high profile C-Suite Executives who share their stories and best practices focusing on the matter of enterprise technology priorities, highlighting topics from harnessing and integrating new technologies to rising security threats.
