Mark Chillingworth to lead three major CIO events in Manchester and London
A season of transformation debates is on offer to the UK’s CIO community. Hosted by Mark Chillingworth, three major events will allow the business technology community not only share experiences, but also meet innovative organisations that can help CIOs with their transformation journeys.
The events, two in May and one in June will focus on the most critical issues challenging today’s business technology leaders. On May 24th a Manchester round table event will debate how CIOs can maximise the return on their technology investment; on May 26th Horizon editor Mark Chillingworth, in partnership with product and innovation services leaders Fluxx will discuss with engineering CDO Richard Atkins the changing shape of the leadership team. Cross was recently voted one of the most transformative business technology leaders in the UK by the CIO 100, which was created and edited by Chillingworth. In June Horizon will host a micro-summit debate on how CIOs can move critical business applications to the cloud to improve services, economics and enable their team to focus on digital transformation.
Horizon, founded by Icon Business Media this year, has the editorial strategy to bring innovative leaders together. The organisation is supported by a guiding team of recent CIOs who all have a strong connection to fast-growth technology companies operating in the UK.
Chillingworth has interviewed a vast array of CIOs including global CIOs, technology leaders in the British Army, Whitehall departments, CIO peers in retail, logistics, financial services, the NHS, local government, the third sector, utilities, engineering and the media to gain a deep insight into CIOs.
Each of these events will be moderated by Mark Chillingworth, the most experienced CIO community editor in the UK. Chillingworth has 20-years of journalism experience writing for the Financial Times, The Times, Times Education Supplement and leading technology titles.
“These events are community driven and all members of the innovation leadership community will benefit from being involved,” Chillingworth said.
Horizon and its team has built partnerships with some of the most innovative challenger organisations within the UK business technology leadership community. Next Think gives CIOs an intelligence layer from which to make informed and strategic decisions on the services and infrastructure they operate.
Fluxx is one of the most exciting professional services organisations to enter the UK economy and its creative ways of helping organisation deliver real change has been used by CIOs at William Hill, JLT, LV= and HomeServe. Richard Cross has worked with Fluxx during the major transformation he has led with engineering giants Atkins.
UK firm Attenda provide critical application services on the Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure platforms as well as private cloud options.
“Horizon set out in January 2016 to bring innovative organisations and the CIO community together,” Chillingworth said.
