Leadership in 2019 and beyond: identifying the core skills of the Connected CXO

February 5, 2019 10:00 am GMT

We lead (and live) in a unique time. Evolutions in business that may have taken 50 years are happening in five. What took five years has been reduced to five months. Yet two things remain the same: according to Gartner’s recent CEO Survey, growth and profit are still our number-one priorities.

The big question is how to achieve them and, fortunately, winning strategies are becoming clear. Today’s most successful CEOs are rapidly developing and iterating near-term and future digital routes to market. They are communicating their vision more clearly. They are connecting the dots between the business and IT, between stakeholder and customer. They are ‘Connected CEOs’.

As every company is becoming a software company, as products are transforming into services, and we all need to become data-driven to survive, what differentiates great business leaders from good business leaders? How can you take your organisation to the next level?

Join five other CEOs on this unique virtual roundtable, as we focus on the 21st Century CEO’s digital transformation challenges and priorities, looking at the science and art of leadership in 2018 and beyond.

Discussion Points

  • The future belongs to the agile. How important is it that you take an entrepreneurial approach to digital transformation? What does this look like?
  • Every company is becoming a technology company. Do you need a centralised IT strategy for digital transformation? What is the CIO’s role?
  • Culture eats strategy. How are you creating (and enabling) a connected, collaborative workforce? What does this mean in practice?
  • Security is everything. How are you organising to ensure a traditional roadblock becomes – potentially! – a vital advantage?
