MITCIO Sloan Symposium a smash

By Phil Verghis on May 23, 2008

After many months of hard work by 25 volunteers, Wednesday’s MITCIO Sloan Symposium was a huge success. The event was co-sponsored by the Center for Digital Business at MIT’s Sloan School; the Sloan Alumni Club of Boston and the Society for Information Management (SIM). I was part of the content panel team that helped panel captains with their panels and also was a panel captain for the CIO keynote panel. I also was a judge for the first ever MITCIO CIO of the Year Award for IT Innovation.

The CIO keynote panel comprised of Gerri Martin-Flickinger from Adobe Systems Incorporated, Molly ONeill from the EPA, Stuart McGuigan from Liberty Mutual Group and Andre V. Mendes from Special Olympics. The session was moderated by Erik Brynjolfsson, a noted professor from MIT’s Sloan School of Business.

Met a number of interesting people (organizers as well as vendors/attendees/CIOs/students and had some stimulating conversations on a variety of topics. Will probably help out again next year.

I’ve just been asked to be a judge for the MIT Sloan – Infoweek CIO award. Should be a fun engagement, and I’m looking forward to meeting and learning from some very well-accomplished people.
