A CIO’s Rules of Engagement: How to get through to the CIO for a mutually productive and beneficial outcome
CIOs need technology to accomplish their missions. Technology companies need CIOs to embrace their solutions. But no CIO has the time or the patience to listen to every pitch from every tech company. Attendees heard from a cross-section of the area’s leading CIOs representing government and industry to find out what’s driving their initiatives, how to engage to demonstrate how your technology solution fits into their technology strategies, and what drives them up the wall. This session aimed to help close the gap between seller misperceptions and buyer expectations to help reduce off pitches and increase productive engagement between technology providers and the companies that rely on technology solutions to achieve their corporate objectives. This event was targeted to all sales, marketing, and business development executives from Northern Virginia’s leading technology companies.
