CIO Panel Discussion: Lessons Learned and Advice for the Future


Do you know any CIO who dreamed about growing up to become a CIO?

We don’t either! Jeff Ton, EVP of Product and Service Development at Bluelock, asked a dozen CIOs how they came to be a CIO. Jeff documented the discussions he had with an impressive group of CIOs around “What did you want to be when you grew up. . . and how did you end up as a CIO?“ in an Intel Contributor Network blog series.

We are bringing five of these CIOs together for an interactive discussion around the lessons they have learned along the way and their advice for rising IT Leaders to become CIOs and existing CIOs to stay relevant in this continuously changing world of technology and IT’s shifting role with the rise of SaaS and cloud software.

Join the discussion with a dynamic and inspiring group of leading CIOs, featuring:
