Exclusive for: CIOs & IT Directors

Location: Xcelerator Lab, Deloitte, 5 Magwa Crescent, Waterfall City

Date & Time: 01 March 2022 16:00

The official launch event of CIO South Africa is a celebration of the role of IT leadership, which is shaping the future and changing South Africa for the better. You will be able to share views and experiences with other top CIOs, while boardroom experts dissect the best ways CIOs can add value. Prepare for a Covid-proof get-together in an ultramodern venue with the like-minded group of top CIOs.

CIO South Africa is your community! Following the success of the CFO SA and CHRO SA, we had numerous conversations with the SA’s leading CIOs to prepare for this official kick-off event! Well-known strategist Abdullah Verachia will join us to look at the role of the CIO in times of “amplified disruption” and EOH CEO Stephen van Coller will highlight the qualities CIOs need to succeed in the boardroom. CIO SA’s Co-founder Melle Eijckelhoff will pinpoint crucial global CIO trends, based on his experience of building many C-Suite communities in Europe.

An absolute highlight will be the knowledge sharing with peers around ways to increase your influence and effectiveness at board level of JSE-listed companies and large multinationals. You’ll be able to join a round table discussion with CIOs like Willie Stegmann (Vodacom), Johnson Idesoh (Old Mutual), Debra Marais (Altron), Faith Burn (Eskom), Arend Brink (Hungry Lion), Warren Hero (Webber Wentzel), Ashref Makra (Weir Minerals) and Jason Kay (SNG Grant Thornton).

Are YOU a CIO? Come join us, connect with old and new friends, help us "officially launch" CIO SA and be part of the leaders who set the agenda for this important community! Email Joël Roerig ([email protected]) to RSVP.
