Join Me For Regional CIO Breakfasts

I've stayed in touch with a great many of you through informal breakfasts and lunches I've held throughout the country with a half-dozen or so CIOs at a time. I'm putting together a schedule of more breakfasts for the spring and summer, and I hope to meet you for some great conversation and networking among your peers. This season's theme: "CIO 2.0." Even though we try not to structure the conversations too much, the next-generation of the CIO in the business seems to be on everyone's radar. So,



I've stayed in touch with a great many of you through informal breakfasts and lunches I've held throughout the country with a half-dozen or so CIOs at a time. I'm putting together a schedule of more breakfasts for the spring and summer, and I hope to meet you for some great conversation and networking among your peers. This season's theme: "CIO 2.0." Even though we try not to structure the conversations too much, the next-generation of the CIO in the business seems to be on everyone's radar. So, if you're interested in getting together with me -- and in some regions I'll be joined by Optimize/InformationWeek editor Stephanie Stahl or Optimize executive editor Paula Klein -- as well as some of your colleages, let me know ASAP (provide your feedback on this blog, or e-mail me at [email protected]). We'll try to configure the schedule based on responses and try to fit the visits to your schedule, but the first breakfast is in Washington, DC, on Tuesday, May 1. We also plan on visiting New York, Boston, Atlanta, Phoenix, and San Francisco. This is sponsorship-free, the only obligation is an appetite for good food and good conversation. Believe it or not, I just want to know what's on your mind! And I'd be happy to share with you what's on mine (for example, how to shift to dynamic budgeting so you can better fund growth opportunities and stop plowing so much money into maintenance...)
