CIO Summit 2021

We are thrilled to announce the new dates and formats for the CIO Summit 2021 series and look forward to working with the CIO community and sponsors to create events that further exceeds the high expectations set from the 2020 Summit.

In 2021, CIO Summit Australia will run a series of physical and virtual events, delivering specific and specialised content and enhanced networking. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, CIOs faced epic challenges and the road to recovery stretches ahead. For many business leaders, recovery isn't just a return to their former state, but a top to bottom rethinking of what business they need to be in and how they must be run to create digital resiliency.

As the chief owners of the digital infrastructure that underpins all aspects of modern enterprises, CIOs must play pivotal roles in the road to recovery, seeking the next normal while still performing their traditional roles. 

At this year’s CIO Summit Australia, senior IT leaders and line-of-business executives will be armed with the tools and strategies needed to effectively manage and communicate their IT investment priorities and implementation strategies, leading IT through the next normal. Join us as we explore ideas such as:

  • Building resilient and flexible forward-looking work models
  • Redefining customer experience through safe, secure, and sustainable digital experiences
  • Realising the full potential of intelligence everywhere through data capitalisation
  • Redefining risk management models to capture the reality of the new normal
  • Cultivating employee productivity and digital workflows in a hybrid workplace
  • Business model reinvention and resiliency to fast-track transformation
  • Building hyper agility through intelligent workspaces
  • Harnessing partnership ecosystems at scale to co-create adaptive business and operating models

  • CIOs, CTOs, CDOs
