Mastering the Art of Digital Disruption

CIO Spotlight Logo

Our CIO Spotlights are a series of events established to address the business, technology and leadership issues facing IT thought leaders. These invitation only half-day events are designed to bring together CIOs and IT leaders from across the country to explore the issues surrounding large, enterprise-scale software programs, the benefits they drive and the importance of getting them right from inception.

The theme of our next CIO Spotlight will be 'Mastering the Art of Digital Disruption' and will be held on Thursday 22nd February at The Merchant Taylors' Hall, 30 Threadneedle Street, between 12.30pm - 5.00pm (including lunch).

The event will aim to cover a number of challenges currently facing the CIO community and has been designed with multiple sectors in mind.
