Look What Happened At The EU CDO Summit

The CDO Summit is the premier event for digital & data leaders
Wednesday, 24 February, 2016 
Sydney, Australia

In 2014, the number of Chief Digital Officers in Europe grew from 7% to 23%!

We’ll be announcing 2015 growth in our updated CDO Talent Map, scheduled to be published at the end of the year.

It’s undeniable: digital disruption is affecting Europe as much as North America, and organizations are reacting.

That’s why we held the inaugural CDO Summit Amsterdam on Wednesday, November 4th, 2015 at the Conservatorium Hotel. Click here to read the event summary and watch the highlight video.

Here’s what you have to look forward to from the write-up:

  • Featured keynote by Patrick Hoffstetter, Chief Digital Officer at Renault, and first-ever EU CDO of the Year award recipient.
  • Joris Merks-Benjaminsen, Head of Digital Transformation at Google.
  • Sean Cornwell, Chief Digital Officer at Travelex.
