Technology Leaders Network

Together, we’ll elevate the impact of IT across businesses

Amplify your impact as part of a community

Technology leaders today have an unprecedented opportunity to drive change and make a real impact within our own organizations and within the industry at large. And we don’t think we should do it in silos. Together, we can elevate one another in our roles and accelerate the insights that lead to even more impact and opportunity.

Technology’s role as an innovator and value-creator is being acknowledged as never before. We built this community to help each other elevate our IT organizations within our businesses and establish ourselves as true and valued partners.

What we do

The Technology Leaders Network amplifies perspectives and connects you with peers in the technology industry looking to share best practices for driving progress. We’re a forward-thinking group of thought leaders, change makers, and management experts—all with unique experiences to speak from that can enhance the collective good.

What you get

As part of our Technology Leaders Network, you’re provided with a sounding board for expressing your ideas, talking about challenges, and soliciting or offering advice. This is both an opportunity to learn collectively and grow personally by amplifying your voice and perspective.

How we partner with technology leaders

Thought Leadership: Amplify your voice

Technology leaders (at least the ones we know!) are some of the brightest people in business. You’ve got your fingers on the pulse of not just the latest tech trends, but the way the world at large is moving. Bring us your thoughts and we’ll give you a platform to share them, amplifying your voice and your personal brand.

Advisory Services: Expand your influence

You didn’t get to where you are today just by being great with technology. You’re also a proven leader, effective manager, and probably even a great coach. This is your chance to share those skills with organizations who can directly benefit from your expertise, while expanding your reach and elevating your career as a trusted advisor.

Mentorship: Learn together

Technology leaders—this is our time to shine. And if we work together, we can support each other and the collective “us” in achieving a brighter future. We get wrapped up in our day-to-day challenges, but connecting with peers can help so much. We’ve created a community where networking isn’t a chore, but a privilege that produces mutual benefits.

Four types of CIOs and the challenges they face today

Technology leaders today have an opportunity to move from business-enablers to value-creators. For CIOs, this means focusing squarely on innovation, transformation, and monetization.

In our two decades of partnering with CIOs, we’ve examined their challenges, motivations, and goals, and have identified a few different CIO categories based on certain commonalities.
