Fourteen years ago, I successfully launched HMG Strategy, a customer-focused business that brought together top-tier technology leaders, A-list vendors and world-class executive recruiters to share their ideas, acquire new knowledge and network professionally with their peers. Our HMG Strategy CIO & CISO Executive Leadership Summits changed the game, raising the bar and setting an entirely new standard for global technology leadership conferences and events.
With our commitment to delivering peer-driven content and insights, the HMG team continues to deliver innovative events that are engaging and educational for our community of 400,000+ technology executives.
Last month, we launched the HMG Marketplace, a digital version of our original and highly successful model for bringing together the brightest technology leaders and the top technology providers. The HMG Marketplace enables top-tier technology leaders to quickly and effectively find the right vendors and solutions that meet their needs without breaking their budgets.
We built the HMG Marketplace specifically to address the needs of CIOs, CISOs and technology executives at a difficult time when face-to-face meetings pose significant risks. Here’s the topline summary of our truly unique value proposition and benefits for practitioners:
1. Precision matching of client needs and vendor capabilities
2. Connecting with high-level expert contacts only
3. Providing a streamlined information-gathering process
4. Focusing on vendor products and services reviewed and vetted by your peers
5. Avoiding unwanted vendor requests
Clearly, the landscape has changed. Together, we are pioneering a new world. The HMG Marketplace is part of this new world. We invite you to join us and to explore the tangible benefits of our fresh and innovative approach to sales and marketing. With your active participation, we are re-inventing our industry. I urge you to take a tour of the marketplace, and please let me know what you think about it.
As I wrote in my newsletter last week, our vision of the future isn’t fixed; it’s continually evolving. Nobody could have predicted that a pandemic would abruptly and fundamentally change our ideas about the future. We had our opinions and our perspectives, and we had the luxury of imagining the future as something far away, like a distant horizon.
None of us foresaw how suddenly the future would arrive. The world has changed dramatically. Together, we are adapting to the new realities. The HMG Marketplace addresses the challenges facing technology leaders and executives. I am confident that you will find it a highly valuable resource.
