WHAT IS THE CDO MEETING

The CDO Strategy Meeting is a discussion based gathering of Data Leaders from the largest companies in the US. This event is invite only and attended strictly by CDOs, CDSs, CIOs, SVP/VPs and Directors.

WHY IS IT UNIQUE?

As opposed to a traditional conference setting with a speaker/ audience format, the “discussion group” environment demands group participation which leads to a sharing of ideas and experiences at multiple levels and stages of implementation.
