Want to Become a CEO or Board Director?
Join Us in London to Learn How!
LEARN – SHARE – NETWORK The CDO Summit is the premier event for
digital & data leaders: March 28, 2018 | London, UNITED KINGDOM
April 25, 2018 | NYC, UNITED STATES
June 27, 2018 | San Francisco, UNITED STATES
As our regular readers know, the CDO Club is the only organization tracking the “CDO to CEO” career path.
Thanks to your input and a deep dive into our CDO Club membership database, we’ll be updating and presenting the new numbers at the UK CDO Summit on Weds March 28.
Be sure to catch CDO Club founder David Mathison’s welcome keynote on “100 CDOs Who Have Become CEO/President,” and learn what skills are required to make the same move yourself.
As pointed out in McKinsey’s December 2017 report, Why digital transformation is now on the CEO’s shoulders, “digital transformation is everywhere on the agendas of corporate boards and has risen to the top of CEOs’ strategic plans. What I’m seeing now is that, almost invariably, global corporate transformations are initiated and propelled by the CEO.
The threat is existential. For boards, if this isn’t on your agenda, then you’ve got the wrong agenda. If your CEO isn’t talking about how to ensure the survival of the enterprise amid digital disruption, well, maybe you’ve got the wrong person in the job. This may sound extreme, but it’s not.”
More good news: Your digital and data skills are required at the Board level too.
We want to help you prepare for a Board slot, and to help you find Corporate Boards that are looking for people with your background.
Mathison’s session will be followed by a keynote from Oliver Cummings, the COO of Nurole on “How to Become a Board Director.” Nurole is an invitation-only board-level hiring platform for both commercial and not-for-profit organisations. We’ll be inviting select CDOs to join the platform.
And those two sessions are before 9am! As usual, we’ve packed the UK CDO Summit agenda with high level content, delivered by seasoned C-Suite veterans.
Our next CDO summits are coming up in London, NYC, and San Francisco:

WHY SPONSOR THE CDO CLUB/CDO SUMMIT?

Seasoned leaders with experience in digital transformation and data-driven culture are increasingly getting the keys to the kingdom, reporting to the CEO and the Board.
