  • Successful strategies for a complex world

    “We find ourselves… right at the maelstrom at the impact of IT and technology to everything in the world and that creates challenges [and a] tremendous amount of opportunities.
    “With those opportunities come the necessity to look at our core competence, comfort zones and examine what needs to be changed in order to move to higher and bigger advances.” With these words, Andre Mendes, global CIO of Special Olympics and a keynote speaker at the 2008 CIO Conference, summarises the challenges facing today’s ICT leaders in increasingly globalised, if uncertain, times.

  • CIO Conference 2007: Giving direction

    Air New Zealand CIO Julia Raue cited this quote from The Dance of Leadership by Peter Cammock in her opening keynote at the CIO Conference 2007.
