Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

WESTPORT, Conn., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- HMG Strategy, the Connecticut-based producer of world-class CIO leadership events, brought its message of transformational change and innovation to the international stage earlier this month in Toronto.

"Transformational leadership is essential for success in today's ultra-competitive, rapidly evolving markets," said Hunter Muller, President and CEO, HMG Strategy. "The newest technology drives innovation and innovation drives business value. For CIOs and technology executives, this is a critical moment. Can they provide leadership? Will they provide leadership?"

Toronto-area CIOs and IT executives attended the CIO Executive Leadership Roundtable held June 17 at the Westin Harbour Castle in Toronto. The invitation-only event, produced by HMG Strategy, provided a high-level, private venue for sharing crucial knowledge, exploring new strategies, and envisioning new revenue streams through innovative use of information technology.

Yuri Aguiar, Senior Partner and CIO, Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, delivered the session's keynote, "Today's Transformational Leader and the Changing Role of Technology Leadership." Aguiar's address focused on how three different types of business leaders might view technology in three different ways: one as a revenue driver, another as a basic service, while a third as a necessary evil. Harry Pickett, Senior VP & CTO, Manulife Financial, presented an executive briefing on the ways in which Manulife's IT transformation was critical to the company's success.

Panel speakers and discussion leaders included Susan Doniz, Director, Shared Services, The Proctor & Gamble Company, Canada; Jan Mark Holzer, Office of the CTO, Red Hat, Inc.; Jeff Hutchinson, CIO, Maple Leaf Foods; and Dave Revell, Senior VP, ITS Enterprise Operations, Strategy and Architecture, Rogers Communications Inc.; and John Mealia, Senior Client Partner, Korn/Ferry International.
