“This is one of the better events that I’ve been to in terms of the content. There’s been a good amount of challenge sharing and practical examples that I was able to connect to. I’ve had conversations that I will follow up on and have already scheduled a catch up for next week from one of my one to one meetings.”
“This event was excellent! We all enjoyed getting to network with one another and meeting one to one with vendors. I found many of the keynote topics interesting and valuable also as they provided me with insightful information on applying technologies to address challenges.”
“My favourite thing about this event was the balanced mix of events – speakers, panels, one to ones and think tanks. The topics were interesting and the speakers great. The one on ones provided a pulse on what is happening in the space. And finally I thoroughly enjoyed the networking opportunities with my CIO peers.”
“This Summit gave me direct contact with some of the key presenters and vendors. There is a good balance between keynotes, panel discussions and one to one meetings. It was not overloaded, giving ample opportunity to spend time networking.”
“My favourite thing was the think-tank discussions and networking with other people from other industries. The speaking sessions were really valuable. The one to one meetings were also good in that they help us understand what is in the market.”
“There was a great mix of delegate and vendor presentations at this event. I really enjoyed the one to one meetings also. They gave me an exclusive session with vendors where we could have an in depth discussion. This was a highly professional and very well planned Summit. Looking forward to next year!”
“It was great to hear CIOs from large organisations sharing their experiences. The presentations were practical and had a realistic outlook on IT management. Moreover, I found the one on one meetings enjoyable. The vendors presence related to the experiences that we heard. So, we asked the vendor some relevant questions after hearing of someone else’s experiences. The MCI team were friendly, helpful and pleasant too.”
“This Summit has some well organised discussions and the schedule was made to fit everyone’s needs. I got a lot out of the one to one meetings as we had some in depth discussions which helped me get a firmer understanding of the advantages of possibly having a relationship with them. The event staff was excellent people who made the conference successful too. Keep up the good work!”
“I have to say that my favourite thing was the ability to have a one to one session with vendors was highly valuable for me. I got to share with them our specific issues and challenges in which they provided possible solutions in how their product is able to help. This was a very well organised event and I will attend again next year.”
“The keynotes were all so good. – great selection of speakers! I also enjoyed meeting with potential service offerings at this event. I hope to get an invite to next year’s!”
“Great event! The opportunity to network with peers like that is hard got. The speaking sessions by the CIOs were also extremely useful. The social settings such as lunch were also useful as we got to interact further. I look forward to next year’s invite!”
“The things that stood out for me most at this Summit was the one to one meetings with vendors. I enjoyed every aspect of this event and thought the organisation at the event and the pre-organisation was really great.”
“Some of the keynotes at this Summit were just excellent. They were delivered by some well-respected leaders such as Rio Tinto, SingTel and Standard Chartered, and I found them insightful as they shared their approaches to challenges that they have. This event is all about honesty and information sharing.”
“I thought every presentation was great. I also enjoyed catching up with the vendors. But, my favourite thing was probably the networking opportunities with my peers. The quality of the attendees really came through in the speaking sessions, panel discussion and conversations throughout the event.”
“I enjoyed the personal one on ones. I was very selective when picking who I was going to meet with, so this was so great to have the opportunity to pick who I was going to meet, and the ‘meets’ so far have been really good. I plan to carry on the conversations down the road. I very much recommend this event.”
“So far, I am so pleased with the quality of the CIOs who are in attendance and the accessibility to those individuals is really great. They are clearly the decision makers within their organisations, the budget holders, who have the ability to decide which technology they will be using moving forward. Our one on one meetings were also very worthwhile discussions, with the CIOs really knowing and understanding their priorities. The event has been run impeccably.”
“I thought he CIO Leaders Summit here in Sydney was an excellent opportunity to network with some of the top CIOs in Sydney and to really hear their thoughts on what are the most pressing issues in their businesses today. The one on one meetings were great to connect with some of the important CIO leaders and understand the things that are driving their business. I am confident that we will be doing some business with some of the CIOs that we met here. Media Corp International team were excellent.”
“I thought the CIO Leader Summit in Sydney was absolutely fantastic. We have established key contacts with Chief Information Officers of high stature. My favourite thing at this event was the one on one meetings for sure. I really liked the opportunity to deep dive into the CIOs current state, where they are looking to head in the future and what their requirements are. I think that I will definitely be doing business with the CIOS that we met at this Summit. I would most definitely recommend this Summit.”
“It was an excellent event. It exceeded our expectations This event brought together some of the top leaders in this area so it took a good combination of thought leadership from Sydney along with vendors who could bring information and kind of compliment the interactions. My favourite thing was the level of interaction here at their event. The collaboration was great and the one on one meetings were valuable and the format of them was just excellent. There was no pressure and it was a little bit informal which was really good. They learned more about us and we learned more about their needs and I do believe we will do more business with them." I would love to join again to another CIO Leaders Summit.”
“I thought the CIO Leaders Summit in Sydney was a fantastic event. I got a lot of value out of it and it is important for us as a new vendor in this market place to get some exposure to the senior executives in the IT industry. I loved the opportunity to get to talk to CIOs one on one. It’s difficult to get access to the likes of these CIOs so this event with its relaxed atmosphere we were able to have a conversation and ask them their challenges and articulate our business value and how we can help them. Pretty much all the meetings we had the CIOs saw value! I am looking forward to Melbourne!”
“This was a really great event. The one on one meetings that I had were valuable and the CIOs were of top quality. We came here for the one on one meetings and they delivered. I also enjoyed the exchange of information between everyone.”
"I think my favourite part of the Summit was the think tanks where it wasn’t really prepared content, it was more sharing, amongst people in similar situations. I felt that the one on one meetings were really useful also. The organisation has been fantastic, Media Corp have been really good. They’ve done a great job."
"The opportunity to engage CIOs in particular discussions is ideal for me and a great use of time. I only have positive things to say about Media Corp International. Their communication has been really good."
“What I found about the Summit today was that it was very contextualised to local industries. You had a lot of thought leaders from Brisbane coming along, sharing their experiences and sharing their knowledge and what is more important sharing what frameworks they have used, what frameworks that have worked and things that don’t work. Media Corp International’s point of difference between any other event is the organisation of the one to one meetings. They are not picked by the vendors, they are picked by the CIO who are interested in you. You can call them a qualified lead. Other conferences do not offer this. I would love to attend this event again.”
“I found the quality of discussion at the CIO Leaders Summit has been very productive. The quality of engagement has been very thorough, having the ability to connect with C-Level executives from around the state, understand their issues, has really been of great benefit to our organisation. The most favourite thing from this Summit has been the quality of the one on one discussions that we’ve had with the CIOs from around the state which has resulted in forming some relationships today that we will definitely be building upon in the future. Media Corp is a leader in this field in conjuring C-level executive conferences and meetings etc. It has been faultless, professional and today was run very smoothly. I cannot fault this event. All indicators are saying we’ll be coming back for more.”
“This event was well organised, provided good content and an excellent networking opportunity. I learnt quite a bit about business scenarios benefiting from some new technologies. I would like to attend next year.”
"This was a very good event, lots of interaction with leading CIOs and it was great to learn the key things, issues and challenges that CIOs are currently thinking about daily. I thoroughly enjoyed the intimacy at this event, it was more personal and we got to get close to the CIOs."
"The benefits for us is two-fold. For one it is about listening to the relevant topics of what is on their mind to get an understanding of how our business can align and effectively help them and secondly, the one on one meetings here were really invaluable to get a doorway into their organisation. The one on ones have been very successful and I am most definitely confident that we have forged business relationships going forward."
"With regards to the CIO Leaders Summit, it has been an excellent event. We made contacts that we couldn't normally make and have reached out to some of the most powerful companies. Everything has been relevant and everyone is very engaged. Certainly the organisation has been tremendous and the value that we have gotten out of it has been a great return on the investment we made. It was most certainly the best event like this out there."
