The first iteration of the Chief Information Officer - CIO 1.0 - was likely the leading IT expert with a C-level job title. Leading CIOs have added more skills and competencies, in particular business and digital leadership, to their CVs, but what are the skills and competencies that will lead to success for Tomorrow's Tech Leaders - and how will they develop diverse, multidisciplinary teams representing the true talent in the tech sector and society to best serve their customers?

2:40pm - 3:20pm
