Panel Members: Yuri Aguiar, Director of Innovation and Transformation, The Ogilvy Group John Higginson, Chief Technology Officer, Enova International Christine Stone, VP Program Management Office Brookfield Properties Mark Taylor, CEO, SIM - Society for Information Management The first rule of business is “know thy client.” In this ‘straight talk’panel discussion, senior technology executives together with the CEO of the Society of Information Management (SIM), the leading CIO organization, will share their candid insights on what is important to IT leaders and their organizations. Questions that will be answered: What are the principal considerations driving their decision-making? Where do they see technology going? How are IT leaders meeting their talent needs? What is their relationship with other internal stakeholders such as procurement and HR? And most importantly for our community -- What do they look for in an IT staffing firm partner? Hint: Just having great people and providing great service does not cut it! Moderated by Anna Frazzetto, Chief Digital Technology Officer for Harvey Nash, the discussion will draw upon the SIM IT Trends Study and the Harvey Nash CIO Survey and Women in Tech Survey. Anna will dig into the topics every staffing exec, account executive and recruiter wishes they could ask. Be ready for a highly engaging conversation and come away with real insights you can put into action. Session II Thursday, November 7 11:00 – 12:00 pm Inside the Mind of the CIO: Continuing the Conversation For those looking for an additional opportunity to get inside the mindset of senior leaders in IT, Anna will continue the conversation in a breakout session. Using a highly interactive approach to get beyond the “company line” responses on a range of issues and opportunities, the IT execs and the CEO of SIM will then field your questions! Come prepared to engage in this unique opportunity to better understand the thinking, motivators and drivers of those in the key management role determining not only what services are needed but from whom they should be purchased. Gain insights into how to achieve the ‘holy grail’ of sales: how to not merely be a vendor, but a true business partner!
