You have done a great job building a CIO community. I can’t think of another market anywhere that has this. Valuable for everybody.

This CIODAY, for me, was a top performance. The community continues to grow is size and quality, and the content was very good (except for being called a little dog!) Thank you to the whole team. I really appreciate everything you are doing, and it’s joy to contribute in little ways where possible.

A quick note to say congrats to you on a great event and thanks for inviting me to participate in the process this year! Great to see Perry win after giving him my vote on Jury Day, and hearing of his great successes!
Good luck for 2020!

It was great to attend this event and share experiences with like minded peers. Congratulations on setting this up so well and on selecting the CIO of the year ! I particularly liked the group sessions on the pre-conference on the various topics on how we can bring ideas. I also felt that inviting student initiatives brings us closer to innovation and help further, so please continue further on it.

The event was great, and it was good to see women at the event as well.
It is very telling that there are no women on your board and no female nominees for the CIO of the year award. Good that you tried to show some balance with some female speakers. I let it slide that all nominees were men as I understand that there are few women in CIO roles.
