NEW YORK – September 28, 2020 – In the final event of a four-part series, Forbes will once again convene the world’s foremost Chief Information Officers as part of its CIO Summit Virtual Series, powered by Zoom. On September 30, Forbes will explore “Digital Transformation & The Future CIO” and provide a platform to discuss how CIOs can maintain the momentum for digital-first change and further enhance their key strategic role at the heart of enterprise.
The pandemic has accelerated what would have been years of transformational efforts into just a few months, as companies rapidly pivoted to address the needs of a new world. For many digital leaders, the challenge now is to take forward the learnings of recent months and ensure they maintain a rapid pace of change. Through dynamic conversations and debates, industry leaders will come together at the exclusive, invitation-only event to uncover how CIOs can create strategies that drive commercial growth, manage risk and future-proof their businesses for the long-term.
The event’s agenda will cover themes such as maintaining digital momentum, using technology to promote productivity in the distributed workforce of tomorrow and the evolving relationship between CIOs and their boards. Speakers will include:
- Lori Beer, Global CIO, JPMorgan Chase & Co.
- Lidia Fonseca, Chief Digital and Technology Officer, Pfizer
- Daphne Jones, Independent Board Member, AMN Healthcare, Inc., Barnes Group Inc., and Masonite International
- Debra King, SVP & CIO, Corteva AgriScience
- Esther Krofah, Executive Director, FasterCures, a Center of the Milken Institute
- Harry Moseley, Global CIO, Zoom
- Jim Swanson, EVP & Enterprise CIO, Johnson & Johnson
The four-part CIO Summit Virtual Series began on July 1, focusing on the “Transformational CIO: Reshaping Companies for a Radically Changed World.” The second event focused on “CIO Leadership Lessons From The Front Lines,” before CIOs convened once again on September 3 to discuss the theme “Rebooting Growth Through Digital-First Innovation.” Throughout the series, participants have shared vital insights on how they are reinforcing business resiliency, rethinking the workplace and rebooting growth in this current climate by accelerating digital transformation strategies.
