Our three-day program features a custom curated agenda focusing on the topics and themes that interest you most.


A full agenda will be available mid-December, but here are some of the areas we are working on for this year’s program:


  • Leadership skills to drive personal and business transformation
  • Driving growth, innovation and transformation to achieve desired business outcomes
  • Digitization: embracing disruption, realizing the potential of emerging trends and focusing on the digital future
  • Leveraging bi-modal strategy and using technology to drive business transformation
  • Technologies that redefine business, from security and data analytics to fast IT, mobility and the cloud
  • Leverage your best competitive advantage: attract, retain and lead a 21st century workforce


The IT Management Program format encourages more discussion, more interaction, and more collaboration. It draws on the expertise of a community of IT managers and directors, technical architects, and Cisco and partner experts to explore the “business of IT” and unifying business and technology architectures while providing value, growth, and productivity. It also helps attendees build their professional networks by facilitating connections among industry peers who share interests and responsibilities.
