The year 2020 is just round the corner. Strategic vision, big ideas, clarity of vision, outward looking, security, sustainability and transformation are terms used in association with the term 2020 vision. Every single one of these concepts aligns with the role of being a CIO and will be the foundations of the 2014 CIO Summit.

A unique corpus of technology directors is coming together to mark the 5th CIO Summit. Each CIO has transformed their organisation during the last five years and is charting the future of business technology leadership. CIOs from global broadcasting, ecommerce, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, tourism, the British Army, charity logistics and the public sector will describe organisational culture change, coping with the digital revolution, modernisation and sparking innovation; business and IT.

CIO UK’s panel of expert columnists, all former business technologists, will lead panel debates to analyse the topics of strategy, innovation, transformation and business outcomes.

For the 2014 CIO Summit increased communication and debate will be introduced to ensure as a CIO that you get the most from the event.

Previous CIO speakers and attendees have described the CIO Summit as the premier CIO event for debating and sharing ideas within the CIO community. Open only to CIOs and business technology leaders, this year’s event will discuss business strategies, technology insights, leadership styles and share lessons from the teams and projects they have led.
