CIO and IT Leaders Summit

June 24, 2021 | Virtual Summit

Getting IT strategy back on track in a time of Covid-19 recovery


It has been a monumentally disruptive year for organisations globally. With the pandemic abruptly making digital customer interfaces and remote working capability essential, many were forced to entirely rethink and digitise how they operate and do business. The CIO has quickly become paramount to a company’s survival and success as they help the business navigate these complexities and strive to gain an IT-driven competitive edge.

But as we move into the second half of 2021, reflections are being made on the lessons learnt from how the pandemic accelerated pre-existing trends in the implementation of digital technology, and how CIO’s are beginning to refocus on creating future proof enterprises that can be agile to the continually evolving needs of their organisation.

The 4th Annual CIO & IT Leaders Summit will balance the strategic and tactical by digging into leading CIO’s lessons learned from the IT response to COVID-19 and will deliver insights on how they plan to support enterprise recovery.

  • Roll out AI and automation to drive business efficiency and optimisation
  • Navigate changes to cyber security to effectively guard your data and information assets
  • Build a roadmap for the ongoing delivery of the remote/ hybrid workplace capabilities
