As more and more industries are disrupted by digital newcomers and new business models, CEOs and their companies are increasingly at risk of being overtaken by bold entrants into traditional markets. Uber, Airbnb, and others have demonstrated how quickly competitive landscapes can be upended. Every CEO and their management team—even in B2B sectors—must reconceive their strategy and build a transformative path to a digital future.
Digital Transformation: the use of technology to fundamentally improve performance or extend the reach of enterprises—will be the marker by which CEOs will be measured.
Leaders can’t afford to dabble at the edges or appoint a chief digital officer adopting flashy technologies at the margin.
Digital transformation will come not just from implementing new technologies such as data analytics, Internet of Things, cloud and mobile computing, but from transforming across one’s entire organization to take advantage of the possibilities these new tools provide. At the same time, leaders must understand new risks, including cybersecurity.
This Summit highlights the latest best practices and provides the opportunity for you to improve your company and its key functions by understanding fast-moving trends and applying to your own organization the hard-won experience of peer CEOs.
As with all Chief Executive’s events, participation in the CEO2CEO Digital Transformation Summit is limited to CEOs, Presidents and other strategic executives.

“The program was replete with outstanding and inspiring panelists representing a cross section of today’s technology ecosystem. The topics covered were relevant to the changing business environment and the vision presented by the panelists provided extraordinary insight into both the challenges and opportunities faced by CEOs. The venue was terrific and the weather wasn’t bad either!”
“A wonderfully produced and delivered educational program. A world-class slate of presenters who were authentic and genuine. A very worthwhile use of my time. This program will carry my highest endorsement.”
“Great insights that I’ll bring back to my office. Worth several McKinsey studies which would have cost millions, actually more valuable because it’s practical advice from other CEOs who have similar constraints & challenges.”
“Subjects will impact all of our companies and yet the applicability is different for all of us. The breadth & depth of the content was appropriate. It provides clarity, direction, and creative thought. Size of group was a pleasant surprise.”
