CIO-led, non-commercial chapter programs provide ongoing opportunities to foster relationships where conversations begin and members are known and get to know other CIO members. Networking events can be shallow and transactional, but having a network of trusted CIO relationships can move mountains.
Technology moves too fast and every organization is different. The best investment you can make in growing your leadership acumen is to join and engage in a peer leadership group with C-Suite colleagues from diverse industries who share a common problem set.
InspireCIO members are equipped to develop their next generation of leaders. CIO members have regular opportunities to bring a guest to “plus one” programs, priority access to inspire your team at the ORBIE Awards, and — launching in 2020 — The InspireCIO Leadership Academy.
It’s not just what you know, it’s who you know. In any gathering of InspireCIO members, the project one CIO is about to start has likely been completed by another.
The answer is in the room...are you?
