The 2017 CIO Summit took place at the May Fair Hotel in London, with well over 100 CIOs, CTOs, IT directors, and CIO direct reports signing up to join the gathering of the UK's business and technology leaders.

Speakers and panellists were open to discussions about everything from innovation, digital transformation, leadership, CIO career development, customer focus, emerging technologies in the enterprise and more.

Hosted by CIO UK Editor Edward Qualtrough, speakers at the 2017 CIO Summit included the CIOs from the British Council, Lloyd's of London, N Brown Group, the NHS, Places for People, Williams F1, Arsenal, the Science Museum and Addison Lee. Representatives from sponsors IBM and Salesforce also contributed to the discussion, along with legal expert Alistair Maughan.

We've put together some of the best insights from the conversation that took place on social channels.


CIOs from Williams F1 and the Science Museum were among those impressed with the transformation agenda Joanna Smith has been driving at Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust.

It wasn't only on Twitter that sparked some conversation, with the discussion also taking place on LinkedIn.
