An Executive Dinner by GEN - The Global Executive Network is an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas with experts and peers and discuss the latest and most important trends for a specific industry-related or management-focused topic.

Executive Dinners are usually attended by between 18 and 22 executive guests and participation is always free of charge.

Learn at the Executive Dinner “Business Transformation through IT Transformation” how IT executives in today’s leading financial institutions deal with the current market challenges, and engage in high-level networking.

According to McKinsey, on average, financial institutions spend a higher share of their revenues on IT—up to 9 percent—than other industries. Unfortunately the value of the investment is often not fully realized, as a result of insufficient controls on incoming demand, poor resource coordination, and a lack of performance transparency. Furthermore, a recent Gartner CFO Technology Study shows that the CFO's role in technology decisions has increased year over year, resulting in more oversight and control of the IT function in many organizations. The CFO's growing role in IT decision making is not primarily on cost management; rather, it's related to making sure it's a key strategic enabler, and ensuring that IT is in step with other efforts.

For the CIO in the Financial Services industry the imperative for IT financial management has become clear. Meeting the demands to support new product and channel innovation requires a significant operating budget for which the CFO expects to have role to play. At the same time Cloud and SaaS have become low-cost alternatives, the number of mobile devices increase by the day. Are the trade-offs understood and how should the CIO and CFO unite to align the IT budget with business priorities.

Topics to be discussed at this Dinner:

  • How CIO’s are moving on from tactical IT cost cutting to cost optimization
  • The CFO directive: the financial disciplines that the CIO must adopt
  • How Cloud is transforming IT into a service broker
  • The measures needed to chart a path to improving IT’s investment value

This Executive Dinner is of particular interest to:

  • Chief Information Officers

At an Executive Dinner, you will listen to a "Business Transformation through IT Transformation" Dinner Speech (exactly 15 minutes) by a distinguished expert presenting a concrete business case. All dinners are sponsored by the speakers. The focus of the evening is to encourage quality networking among the guests, facilitated by detailed guest introductions and GEN's unrivaled Connecting Services.

What executive attendees do say about GEN's Executive Dinners:

"I was really impressed by the seniority and quality of people you were able to gather for that dinner. I look forward to receiving an invitation for future event so that I can get other executives of my company benefiting from such function. The venue was also greatly selected."
