The 3rd Annual NYC Chief Digital Officer Summit 2015

The CDO Summit:&nbnbsp;the premier event for digital & data leaders
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 
Thomson Reuters in New York City
In just 3 weeks, hundreds of digital leaders, executives, and practitioners will convene for the 3rd NYC CDO Summit. 

Every year we have sold out weeks early… Don’t miss your chance to be theresecure your seat today!

New CDO hires are doubling every year, and now total over 1,000, with Q1 2015 appointments at the White House for their first-ever Chief Digital Officer and Chief Data Scientist.  

The CDO role is important for incumbents to survive digital disruption: Since 2000, 52% of the F500 have gone bankrupt, been acquired, or ceased to exist, according to Capgemini. 

To help participants understand what it takes to lead digital transformation initiatives, the Summit features sessions from leaders of Capgemini Consulting, including Dr. Didier Bonnet, SVP and Global Practice Leader; CDO Fernando Alvarez; and Tony Fross, VP, Digital Customer Experience.

Other keynotes include Alexander van Boetzelaer, Managing Director R&D Solutions, Elsevier Inc.; Keyvan Peymani, Managing Director of Digital Strategy at ICM Partners; and Michael Ellis, CEO and President at ForgeRock. See full agenda here.

Speakers also include digital executives from Alex and Ani, Bayer, General Electric, the Harvard Business Review, IBM, ICM Partners, Ivanka Trump, Mashable, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the NYC Mayor’s Office, PetSmart, Staples, UNICEF, and Thomson Reuters, among others.  
See full speaker list here.
Jeremiah Owyang, our featured speaker, is the Founder of Crowd Companies, which focuses on how large companies tap the collaborative economy, maker movement, and customer collaboration. Jeremiah will discuss the disruptive impact of the “Collaborative Economy” (Airbnb, Uber, Udacity, indiegogo, Bitcoin, etc) on incumbent organizations and business models, and how CDOs should respond.
