• Established in 2005, the CIO Executive Circle is the premier think-tank for Chief Information Officers and senior IT decision-makers from the Belux most significant organizations. The founding idea was to create a truly exclusive and content-based environment where extraordinary IT and digital leaders can get inspiring insights, challenge assumptions, and confront respective experiences on key technology adoption, business transformation and IT governance challenges in a private, off-the-record environment.

  • The Circle is also a highly collaborative place to stimulate new levels of thinking and explore how new technologies are exponentially catalyzing and amplifying one another, and how CIOs should best embrace them while reimagining their IT operating model, adapting their technology adoption journey, re-aligning investments, and delivering new customer experiences outside the conventional spheres.

  • The CIO Executive Circle is unique in that it maintains an unparalleled level of interaction and knowledge sharing. It delivers inspirations from real-world cases while fostering networking at the highest level with CIO peers from Belgium and abroad. Equally important is the Circle’s engagement to make the CIO function more accountable, better understood, and valued at its best.

  • The Circle is completely independent from any commercial or academical influence. Meetings are strictly held off-the-record and closed to the press and public. Membership is by personal invitation only.



‘The Circle’s high dedication to top-quality content & insights, straightforward exchanges with peers, and frank discussions with providers, is truly unique and well beyond other CIO groups or networks.’


‘The CIO Executive Circle perfectly ties together unbiased content, inspiring stories and well-structured debates that really help getting new ideas and going the extra mile in my technology and business related strategic thinking.’


Participating to several CIO platforms, in my opinion the Circle is really highest-ranking, packed with so much content and actionable ideas, offering a unique balance between learning, experience sharing and networking with CIO-peers. In short: an extraordinary source of inspiration.’


As the local Managing Director of a renowned consulting company, the Circle allows me to engage face-to-face with many CIOs in a spirit of trust and openness and to learn about -and from- their real issues and most compelling challenges. It’s an outstanding place to initiate collaboration, share ideas and think out innovative solutions together.’
