Chief Digital Officers Council

Apply Here

The rise of the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) reflects the growth of digital transformation. CDOs are change agents who drive growth and strategic renewal by leading businesses as they transform from traditional to digital. Increasingly, digital strategy and business strategy are indistinguishable. That means increasing demands on the CDO. Whether or not you hold the actual CDO title, if you have the responsibility of leading digital transformation, you have likely felt its new pressures and opportunities in every part of your enterprise.

Amid this seismic change, the Chief Digital Officer Council provides a confidential setting where senior executives can candidly share issues and solutions. Members will drive the Council’s agenda and topics, which may include:

  • Developing and executing a digital vision/strategy that defines needs across leadership, culture, people, data, process, and technologies
  • Leading digital change and integration across a large organization while overcoming cultural obstacles and maintaining commitment to vision
  • Aligning digital strategy to overall business strategy and goals while establishing necessary governance
  • Predicting opportunities and evolving organizational capabilities, including business model innovation, to capitalize on them
  • Developing, retaining, and attracting the right talent across analytics, business, data and IT, leveraging both internal and external ecosystems
  • Getting buy-in for tools and technologies to enable internally (workforce) and externally geared digital solutions
  • Identifying, prioritizing, and delivering value through digital across business functions and processes
  • Partnering with internal and external customers to enable and accelerate their digital journey



Members drive the content, ensuring that their pressing issues are incorporated in discussions.


No vendors are eligible, ensuring an intimate environment conducive to candid peer exchange.
