Dave Aron & David Mathison
“Winning in the 21st Century”
LEARN – SHARE – NETWORK The CDO Summit is the premier event for
digital & data leaders: July 26, 2017 | Washington D.C., USA
September 27, 2017 | London, ENGLAND
October 25, 2017 | Toronto, CANADA
We are excited to confirm the speakers and agenda for our upcoming DC CDO Summit on Wednesday July 26 at the W Hotel, in an intimate environment designed for networking and knowledge-sharing with your peers.
In 2010, David Mathison observed that CDO hires were ramping up dramatically, and garnering lucrative salaries at some of the world’s most prestigious organizations.
Yet no one was addressing the rapid growth of this important new title.
No one, that is, except Dave Aron at Gartner. So Mathison’s first phone call, prior to starting the CDO Club in 2011 or the first-ever CDO Summit in NYC in 2013, was to Dave Aron in London.
Dave Aron spent more than 12 years at Gartner, as a Gartner Fellow, focusing on strategy and CIO leadership issues. He was the one of the first analysts to cover the importance of Chief Digital Officers, Chief Data Officers, and Chief Information Security Officers in the enterprise.
Dave Aron is now Global Research Director for Leading Edge Forum, where he guides a series of global research initiatives aimed at helping CIOs, CDOs, CISOs, and other Business/IT leaders re-imagine their organizations and leadership for a tech-driven future.
It is only fitting that the opening keynote at the upcoming DC CDO Summit will be delivered by Dave Aron, Global Research Director at Leading Edge Forum, on “Winning in the 21st Century.“
Most companies and government agencies have sleepwalked into the 21st century with business models, operating models, talent pools, products, services and processes that were designed for much more static, analogue times. In this session, Dave Aron will outline Leading Edge Forum’s perspective on how to win in this increasingly digital 21st century.
Following Dave Aron, CDO Club/CDO Summit founder & CEO David Mathison will keynote on “100 CDOs Who Have Become CEO.” Incredibly, in just the last seven years, over 100 CDOs have become Chief Executive Officer. Mathison will examine this startling trend and its implications.
