CIOs/CISOs as the Consummate Communicator

Executive Visions - 12:15 pm - 1:25 pm

Digital transformation is changing how you equip your employees and how your company interacts with customers. It is also changing the role of the CIO and CISO to be a business leader and internal sales leader for transformation. CIOs are now responsible for communicating strategies and recommendations to CxOs, boards and key stakeholders within a company. Join us, during lunch, for a passionate panel discussion with your peers as they share how they are successfully communicating internally to accomplish the company's goals.


  1. CIOs must be great communicators, not only with their teams, but the rest of the organization.
  2. CIOs must learn the best ways to communicate clarity and urgency with boards and CXOs.
