Interim CIO—To Be, or NOT to Be . . .

Thursday, October 28 | 9:15AM–10:00AM ET | 103AB, 100 Level
Viewing Location: Philadelphia
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session
Our experiences are what drive our passions, desires and career aspirations. Sometimes these experiences encourage and other times they make us want to run and hide. Are you or have you been an interim CIO? Would you be interested if presented with the opportunity? Hear from and engage with a diverse group of four CIO’s who were asked to serve, sought after themselves, or cautiously tiptoed into an interim CIO role. This session highlights their experiences in a genuine nature that will reassure you that wherever you find yourself in your career, you are not alone. You will have broader insight into the feelings, emotions, and roller coaster ride an interim CIO role may bring.
