The 2017 CIO Leadership Forum took place at the Park Plaza last month. It is the only Leadership Forum in Europe all year and 1 of 4 different CIO engagement platforms we provide for our clients. The focus of this year’s LF was to provide CIOs with new insights into the powerful digital forces at work within the IT & business ecosystems they operate in. Anticipating and seizing the opportunities that digital disruption presents was a strong theme throughout.
Interestingly enough, this is exactly where the vast majority of our tech provider clients see themselves in the marketplace: Digital disruptors in an increasingly complex world.
Last month we had a record breaking number of 850 CIOs participating. In the closing keynote delivered by the CIO from AstraZeneca he talked about ServiceNow, Box, Office 365, Workday, Cisco, Google, Apple and Salesforce.
None of these companies have sponsored the event nor has any other provider this year – what a hugely missed opportunity for us as our clients trusted advisors but also for our clients.
This is precisely the type of audience every provider wants to get in front of. Having said that, while it’s too late for 2017 there will be a Leadership Forum next year and there is a simple way to get on board. We only provide one sponsorship level at a fixed price point.

Recognizing outstanding achievement is an intrinsic part of our culture. Gartner Winners Circle celebrates the success of our top performing Sales Associates, rewarding their hard work and dedication with events renowned for being unforgettable.
April is the time of year where we celebrate the success of last year one last time. Many of us who have been with Gartner for a few year see Winner’s Circle as the pinnacle of sales achievement and almost a rite of passage. Those of us who have been before know what it is to be part of the “club” who are absolutely spoiled by Gartner for 4 or 5 days and given the opportunity to see wonderful venues and imaginative parties and excursions.
This year we wave off nearly half of our sales floor to either Montreux or Rome and I would like to take the opportunity again to congratulate the following Winners:
Winners Circle (Montreux)
Bastiaan Van Hooft
Club 300 (Rome)
Look out for the photos towards the end of April from the Themed Parties (“Heroes and Villains” and “Musical Hall of Fame”), Gala Dinners and various fun excursions…
Review your plan for 2017 now to make sure you are part of the party next year!!
