The Chief Technology and Innovation Officer (CTIO) Council is designed for the most senior executive in charge of Technology, R&D, Innovation or Digital Transformation from the world’s leading companies with multibillion revenue. This council provides a safe space for a select group of top-level officers to get exposed to cutting-edge insights, share challenges, and identify best practices by peers from other industries – in a confidential, non-competitive, and vendor-free environment. This is an invitational only, yearlong, closed community where you build trust, gain new insights, raise issues and collaboratively explore solutions.
