About Us

CIOsynergy was founded to provide a unique platform to bring together the true visionaries of enterprise IT leadership. These are the ‘thought leaders’ that instigate both change and stability within the organizations they serve.

The successful CIO is a one that empowers themselves with the lessons, knowledge, and experience of a community – CIOsynergy brings forth this community of IT Leaders under the umbrella of world renowned leaders and visionaries to the likes of Steve Forbes (CEO of Forbes), Robert Herjavec (Star of ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’), Jimmy Wales (founder of Wikipedia), John Sculley (former CEO Apple & Pepsi), Terry Jones (founder of Travelocity), Peter Guber (CEO of Mandalay Entertainment) and Howard Putnam (former CEO, Southwest Airlines) among many more. Empowering the concept of ‘Thought Leadership’, our events incorporate opportunities to exchange through a series of open mic panel discussions, think-tanks and round-tables coupled with inspiring business relevant keynotes, and C-suite networking programs.
