The CIO Executive Circle intends to be a collaborative, truly executive-level environment to stimulate new levels of relationship, engagement and trust between those who make IT decisions at the highest level and those who deliver innovative solutions and real-world advice.

The Circle is deliberately not searching for the largest number of partners. Instead, it only accepts providers whose expertise, client experiences, reputation and history of working closely with top CIOs help focusing the Circle’s agenda, feeding the debates, and enriching the conversations.

Partners must adhere to a drastic code of commercial conduct when joining the Circle, comply with the highest standards of ethical business, and demonstrate clear policies of diversity, equity and inclusion with their workforce. Commercial speeches are strictly banned to ensure CIOs benefit from unbiased and road-tested insights they cannot find anywhere else.

As a result, and through this remarkable and uncommon network of carefully selected partners, the Circle helps CIOs to not only advance their understanding of vendors’ technology roadmaps and product capabilities, but also benefit from practical guidance to define optimal strategic directions, answer pivotal questions, and make the best decisions to drive their organization’s future success.

Information about partnership rules and conditions is available on demand.
