You will know them by their deeds.

Traditional companies and hierarchies are optimized to be stable, to minimize risks and to generate profits with the established business model. The current challenges in the economy demand drastic changes with the help of new technologies - one of them is the digitalization of business models. How can this contradiction be resolved without destroying the economy?

At the level where the current problems have arisen, we cannot solve them. Anyone who wants to digitally change companies, products and services, has to take risks. Phrasing is a waste of time. You can't buy or force courage. Consequently, leadership in this context requires to go to a strategic level and to establish other structures and working methods for the development of solutions and to open the previous company boundaries for cooperation. Trust is the indispensable fuel for the development of new forms of work and the digital future. And as CIOs, we have to provide this energy. Otherwise, we will move into Orwell's abysses.

Words from our attendees
  • "Another concise, factual and easy to follow course. Presentation was very good.” - Margaret Wearing (ATT)
  • I just wanted to say congratulations on a great event and thank you all for your help, especially Ceri and Sarah who have spent time in advance and at the event with me to help me get the most out of the days here.I have really enjoyed the event, and made some good new contacts as well as insights into common challenges we are all facing in the CIO community. It’s been run superbly so thank you, and I look forward to the future events.

    - John Nother - Group CIO, Card Factory

  • I thought the quality and mix of contributions and the engagement from the audience was excellent. 

    It felt more like an interactive team exercise in some respects, than a sit back and listen conference, and for me was more enjoyable and genuinely helpful for that. Similar folks, passionate about their brands and their work, but with different best practice to share – very collaborative, which I personally like.

    So all good and thanks for the chance to take part. It’s always a drain on time, which none of us have, but it was worth it.
     

    - Tim Sinclair - Marketing & Retail, Alrayan Bank
  • This was our first experience with Global Business Events and first impressions are important. I was impressed by the level of seniority at the event. The venue worked well, the size of the event was good for networking and the 1−2−1 business
    meetings were strong. Well done and I look forward to the next event’.

    - Rob Simms - Sales Director, BOX
