Courageous Leadership and Fearless Reinvention: Guiding the Modern Enterprise in Turbulent Times

As the global health crisis continues, CIOs and technology executives are facing some tough challenges. These include identifying fresh ways to keep employees engaged and motivated in the prolonged remote work environment, supplying the CEO and the executive team with new ways to grow the business and execute on new business models while fostering a culture of connectedness in an isolated setting.

In this Digital Summit, world-class technology executives will share their advice on leading courageously to enable innovation and reshape the business while providing authentic and compassionate leadership that can offer the team confidence, hope and inspiration for a brighter future.

    "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!"

He is the New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Speed of Trust, and coauthor of the #1 Amazon bestseller Smart Trust.

Audiences and organizations alike resonate with his insightful, relevant approach to real-time issues that affect their immediate and long-term performance.

Stephen, with Greg Link, led the strategy that propelled his father’s book, Dr. Stephen R.

A Harvard MBA, he joined Covey Leadership Center as a Client Developer and later became National Sales Manager and then President and CEO. Under Stephen’s direction, the company grew rapidly and profitably, achieving Inc. 500 status. As President and CEO, he nearly doubled revenues to over $110 million while increasing profits by 12 times. During that period, both customer and employee trust reached new highs and the company expanded throughout the world into over 40 countries, which greatly increased the value of the brand and company. The company was valued at only $2.4 million when Stephen was named CEO, and, within three years, he grew shareholder value to $160 million in a merger he orchestrated with then Franklin Quest to form FranklinCovey.

      Over the years, Stephen has gained considerable respect and influence with executives and leaders of Fortune 500 companies as well as with mid- and small-sized private sector and public sector organizations he’s consulted.

    Moderator: Hunter Muller, President & CEO, HMG Strategy

    As the clock turns to 2021, hope is on the horizon as millions of COVID-19 vaccinations are being distributed across the world. Yet, we continue to live in turbulent times, which will continue into the foreseeable future. The global health crisis is impacting everything from customer behavior to existing business models and supply chains operations, resulting in dramatic shifts to remote work and organizational culture. Meanwhile, CEOs are worried about the health and safety of their employees. Now, more than ever, CIOs, CISOs, CTOs, CDOs and technology executives are being looked upon by the CEO, the Board and Line-of-Business (LOB) leaders to lead courageously, authentically and with transparency to enable their organizations and their teams to succeed and guide the path to a brighter future.

    EXECUTIVE PANEL: The Need for Speed

    Panelists coming soon!

    Moderator: TBD

    The speed at which business is conducted continues to accelerate. CEOs and LOB leaders need to quickly identify and act on shifting market conditions, changing customer behaviors and fresh customer feedback to keep their products and services relevant and to devise innovative go-to-market strategies. CEOs and business leaders count on technology executives to enable speed – both through the infrastructure that supports the business as well as the data that drives the business. CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and other technology executives will increasingly be focused on delivering insights, metrics and dashboards to the CEO and members of the executive team to help accelerate data-driven decision making and keep pace with the speed of business.

    EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Safeguarding the Enterprise Against Escalating Global Cyber Threats

    Panelists coming soon!

    Moderator: TBD

    Make no mistake – CISOs and cyber teams are at war against nation-state threat actors and other highly-trained adversaries. The recent SolarWinds cyber-attack is believed to be the most damaging hack of a Western government ever, along with still-to-be-determined impact on more than 425 companies in the Fortune 500 who receive services from SolarWinds. While the long-range impact for companies and government agencies continues to unfold, the attacks underscore how security is more important to organizations than ever. CEOs and Board members will be relying on CISOs and security leaders more than ever to help identify and respond to potential threats and to protect the enterprise and its crown jewels.

    In this executive panel, CISOs and security leaders will share their recommendations for working with the CEO and the Board on looming cyber threats, including how best to communicate these risks and articulate where funding is needed most.

    EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Cultivating a Connected Culture

    Panelists coming soon!

    Moderator: TBD
     
    One of the greatest challenges cited by CIOs, CTOs, CISOs, CDOs and technology executives in the HMG community – especially during the second half of 2020 – is finding effective ways to keep employees engaged and motivated for the long haul in a remote work environment. This also dovetails with how members of the C-suite are looking to foster a culture of high-performance leadership across the enterprise. Looking out across 2021, tech executives will be looking for fresh ways to imbue a connected and inclusive culture – both for long-term employees as well as new hires.

    • Sonatype

      The Sonatype journey started 10 years ago, just as the concept of “open source” software development was gaining steam. From our humble beginning as core contributors to Apache Maven, to supporting the world’s largest repository of open source components (Central), to distributing the world's most popular repository manager (Nexus), we’ve played a meaningful role in helping the world embrace the power of open innovation. Over time, we witnessed the staggering volume and variety of open source libraries that began flowing into every development environment in the world. We understood that when open source components are properly managed, they provide tremendous energy for accelerating innovation. Conversely, when unmanaged, open-source "gone wild" can lead directly to security vulnerabilities, licensing risks, enormous rework, and waste. Our vision today is simple. We are laser-focused on helping organizations continuously harness all of the good that open source has to offer, without any of the risks.

History In 1997, a group of prominent CIOs in the Central Florida area decided to establish a non-competitive environment where CIOs could collaboratively share in knowledge and work experiences. The founding fathers included Andy Wing, Rick Sickles and Ron Maciejewski. Wing became the group’s President and initiated the recruitment process – encouraging Hugh Moore, Jim Dekle and Garrett Grainger to join as founding members to lead the new group, which was named the Central Florida CIO Council. Several years later, another member of the Council, Dave Razmussen, challenged the group to convert to an affiliate chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM) – a watershed decision in our growth. The organization officially became a SIM chapter in 2001.
