Accenture Global CIO Forum

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

The Foush just arrived in Washington, DC, to speak at the Accenture Global CIO Forum. The theme of this year’s forum is IT Matters: Shaping the Future of the Enterprise. While many aspects of social media/digital communication have been handled by the Marketing and Communication teams within organizations, its increasing importance within strategic planning is making many CIOs stand up and take notice.

Rahaf will be on a panel discussing the implications of these developments on the CIO’s role and hear the insights of some of the other panelists including:

  • Elizabeth Hackenson, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, The AES Corporation
  • Rob Webb, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Hilton Worldwide
  • Richard Williams, Vice President and Group Chief Information Officer, AstraZeneca

The CIO Exchange

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

IT World Canada (publisher of CIO Canada) in association with the CIO Association of Canada, is holding its first CIO Exchange on September 16th, 2009. The format of this new “forward-facing event” consists of a on-day peer-to-peer direct exchange of insights and expertise around critical issues facing CIOs.

This first CIO Exchange will be addressing the precarious balance between two often-competing principles: the openness necessary to integrate with all partners in the value chain, and the security to ensure the safety of systems and intellectual property — and from potential legal liability. This topic has increasing importance given the rapid proliferation of wireless networks and mobile devices.

The keynote address will be delivered by Chris S. Thomas, Chief Strategist, Intel Corporation and Director of Architecture, World Ahead. Nabil has been invited to participate in this Exchange and will be reporting back in our blog on the outcomes of this event.
