CIO Mastermind advocates for you. Our network becomes your network at the time that you need it.
With 1) the pace of technology, and 2) the variety of means to "skin a cat", CIO Mastermind provides a broad set of informed perspectives that can enlarge the stakeholders own thinking about how they might approach a challenge.
I like having an opportunity to help colleagues address challenges that they are facing. Making a positive difference is important to me.
I appreciate the emphasis CIO Mastermind puts on interviewing member candidates to ensure the highest level of commitment from members. It is far too easy to join a peer group and then let your day job prevent commitment to the group. A great job is done guiding members to contribute during and in between meetings. I also value the 'agile' format focused on the members helping each other overcome bottlenecks so we can bring more value to our firms.
Finding a consistent group of peers from various industries to share challenges and discuss strategies to overcome those challenges helps to enhance the value that each of us bring to our respective firms.
What’s most important for me is the trust and faith I have in my fellow CIOs. I know that they understand the demands of our jobs and this enables them to track the nuances and understand implications of the [unique situational problem].
