Past Summits

2020 HMG Live! San Francisco CIO Executive Leadership Summit

Reimagining the Business and the Future of Work

As regional economies gradually open up, many executives believe that both business and the nature of work will change forever. In order to support the business effectively, CIOs and technology executives need to help reimagine and reinvent the business and help the CEO and line-of-business leaders identify new opportunities in core, parallel and new markets. Technology executives also must work with the executive team to identify what the future of work looks like and provide the infrastructure and tools necessary to support this new way of working.

In this Virtual Summit, top technology executives will share their advice on the roles that CIOs and tech leaders can play in reshaping the business and the future of work.


"As an attendee of the HMG Virtual Summit I enjoyed the fact that it was fast moving, insightful and presented a variety of speakers, both local and non-local. The duration was just right and did not require tying up an entire day. I thought the content and format was absolutely terrific!"

John Phillips, President, Briggs Homecare and CIO Emeritus, Briggs Healthcare
