Overview

CIOs drive value—both top line and bottom line—for their companies. Many of these have even been asked to take over
other parts of the company while maintaining CIO responsibilities. These “CIO-pluses” have created
an even higher level of value for their companies, leveraging their time in IT as the blueprint for success.
The ‘best of the best’ have risen to become CEOs and COOs of their companies.

The Forbes CIO Summit caters to this elite group of CIOs. In our interactive sessions, we aim to promote learning
between executives, to shine a light on best practices and to walk away with new ideas to pursue. The Summit will act as a
“personal board” for those involved—offering counseling, best practice research, and continued collaboration across the group.
