EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW:  The New Leadership Paradigm: Why Tech Executives Must Shift from a ‘Command-and-Control’ Model to ‘Inspire and Trust’ to Win the Global War for Talent and in the Marketplace

Stephen M. R. Covey, best-selling author interviewed by Hunter Muller, Founder and CEO, HMG Strategy

The world has changed dramatically since March 2020 and so, too, have organizational cultures. The shift to a work-from-home environment has empowered employees who want to dictate how, when and where they work. Moreover, in a flat screen meeting environment where all participants are viewed as equals, employees don’t want to follow orders – they want to be part of the brain-trust that helps to solve critical business and customer challenges and to influence the strategic trajectory of the company.

In this compelling Executive Interview with HMG Strategy President and CEO Hunter Muller, Stephen M.R. Covey, best-selling author of The Speed of Trust and his forthcoming book Inspire and Trust, shares why a ‘Command-and-Control’ leadership style no longer works and how an ‘Inspire and Trust’ leadership approach can encourage employees to be more collaborative and creative and to maximize their potential. Covey, who is the Co-Founder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust practice, also frames “the two epic imperatives of our time” to help guide leaders on creating a thriving culture that can help attract, grow, retain, engage and inspire the best people in the global war for talent and to successfully collaborate and innovate in order for companies to win in the marketplace.


3:40 - 3:55 PM

EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW:  Maria Roat, Deputy Federal CIO, U.S. Office of Management and Budget


3:55 - 4:20 PM ET

 

EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Stimulating a Connected Culture to Compete in the Battle for Talent

Moderator:  Judith Apshago, VP IT, Amtrak

Bharat Amin, EVP & CIO, Huntington Ingalls Industries

Renee Arrington, President, COO & Director, Pearson Partners International, Inc.  interviewed by Hunter Muller, President and CEO, HMG Strategy

Michael Montoya, SVP & CIO, WAPA

Additional panelists being confirmed.

The tech skills shortage is more acute than ever. For instance, CompTIA’s monthly Tech Jobs Report reveals the unemployment rate for tech professionals was at just 1.5 percent for July 2021, compared with 2.2 percent in June. One of the characteristics that draws people to an organization - and helps to retain them - is a strong corporate culture where people feel connected to one another, regardless of where they conduct their work.

In this executive panel, executives will share recommendations for fostering a connected culture and how this can help attract the skills that are needed for the organization to execute on its mission.


4:20 - 4:35 PM ET

EXECUTIVE TECH TALK:  The Changing Landscape of Opportunities and Threats for CIOs

Dr. David Bray, Inaugural Director, Global GeoTech Center & Commission, Atlantic Council  interviewed by Hunter Muller, President and CEO, HMG Strategy

The advancing speed, scale, and sophistication of new technologies and data capabilities that aid or disrupt our interconnected world are unprecedented. While generations have relied consistently on technologies and tools to improve societies, we now are in an era where new technologies and data reshape societies and geopolitics in novel and even unanticipated ways.

Dr. David Bray will highlight the changing landscape of "over the horizon" opportunities and threats for CIOs - specifically what changes in tech present, opportunities for CIOs as well as threats of data poisoning for data centric organizations or ransomware done fully by AI/bots. CIOs need to be tracking advances in technologies for intelligent systems: artificial intelligence, distributed sensors, edge computing, and the Internet of Things. CIOs also need to be tracking the changing landscape of the U.S. Congress and the Administration, what does 2022 have in store for CIOs, as well as how geopolitical tensions in Asia and elsewhere in the world may impact their organizations. There are also new advanced threats on the horizon: dramatic increases in bots and increasing automation of cyberattacks and ransomware as well as what big nation state players are doing to disrupt companies in terms of cybersecurity, supply chains, and even use of space assets for future disruption too. 


4:35 - 5:00 PM

EXECUTIVE PANEL:  Safeguarding the Enterprise Against Escalating Global Cyber Threats

Moderator:  Hunter Muller, President and CEO, HMG Strategy

John Brady, SVP, Cyber Security/CISO, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA)

James Cheeks, Cyber Supervisory Special Agent, FBI

Israel Martinez, Industry Advisor, US Department of Homeland Security 

Ransomware attacks are up a whopping 500% in 2021. Meanwhile, the nature of recent attacks continue to become more widespread as these threats are impacting infrastructure, supply chains and other operations that can impact multiple organizations at once. As these and other types of threats continue to evolve and become more dangerous and complex, it’s clear that CISOs and security leaders need to reimagine their cybersecurity strategies to better safeguard the organization now and into the future.

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.

  • Zscaler

    Zscaler, the only zero trust platform that securely connects any user, any device, and any app over any network.

Instead, you need to put your defenses and controls where the connections occur— the internet — so that every connection is fast and secure, no matter how or where users connect or where their applications reside. By moving applications and infrastructure to the cloud and untethering employees from their desks, you can realize tremendous advantages in productivity, agility, and cost containment.
