What is the CIO Forum?

A series of quarterly peer-networking events for CIOs that provides a unique opportunity to meet, network and learn from the country’s best IT minds.

A peer networking platform

The Forum addresses the need for a stable and enduring platform for peer networking, discussion and debate for CIOs and high-level management more generally. As the only forum of its kind in Ireland, it provides a unique opportunity to meet, network and learn from the country’s best IT minds.

A space to discuss prevalent IT issues

The Forum provides a space for CIOs to critically debate key issues within IT (CIO challenges, security, IT infrastructure, architecture) and devise strategies and methodologies for moving forward. Learn how to implement actionable ideas and strategies for your business and impart some wisdom of your own

For IT that’s continually changing

Given the challenges CIOs are constantly faced with, the forum takes place every three months of the year (February, May, August, November), between 11-1pm on the day. Keynote speakers offer their thoughts on the agreed topics, after which an open discussion is held.
