In September 2010, CIO held its inaugural summit in London, attended by around 80 CIOs and other IT leaders.

In this final video of the day, Rick Pastore, MD of editorial and programmes at the CIO Executive Council starts off proceedings by mapping out the evolution of the CIO within the organisation.

He introduces NewEdge European CIO John Saffrett, six minutes and 50 seconds into the video to talk about some practical examples about how he has positioned the IT department as the engine of the business strategy within his organisation.

At 16 minutes into this video, Pastore invites former group CIO at Novartis, Leon Schumacher to talk about how CIOs need to take their staff with them on the journey. It’s their attitudes that make or break the IT leader’s attempt to be seen as a business leader by business line managers.

Other speakers return to the stage at 32 minutes and 15 seconds into this video to answer questions about CIO leadership skills from the audience. Saffrett and Schumacher are joined by Guardian Media Group COO Derek Gannon, Standard & Poors international head of IT Jora Gill and Hitachi Consulting’s Stan Dacre.
