reThink CIO Forum Bangkok
20 March 2018
Altitude at The Westin Grande Sukhumvit

CHARTING A NEW COURSE: Rethinking Your Strategies For The Digital Economy
The rise of disruptive technologies has fundamentally changed how businesses compete. CIOs and technology leaders find themselves in the hot-seat, they need to break away from traditions and status quos, and embrace new norms to help the business evolve. The external environment that influences how the technology leaders’ role is changing, forces them to challenge long-standing status quos and rethink strategies in managing an IT organisation of the future.
The reThink CIO Forum series is CIO Academy Asia’s initiative to bring together some of the best minds to critically review,  or rethink, the roles of a CIOs and technology leaders in an organisation. At this forum, technology leaders will put their thinking caps and re-evaluate the value they bring to their organisation from a business perspective, coupled with the sharing of best practices and ideas amongst fellow professionals.
The full-day programme will feature discussions on the digital economy ecosystems, the ‘war’ of digital talent, as well as sessions dedicated to 3 (three) main pillars of IT decision making: 

reThink:
LEADERSHIP

reThink:
DIGITAL STRATEGY

reThink:
CYBERSECURITY & RISK
