Bloor organises regular events for our end-user and vendor communities including:
  • Annual Bloor Symposium
  • Executive programme events such as roundtables, workshops and seminars
  • Executive peer-to-peer networking events
  • Tele-briefings and Webinars
We have found that CIOs and other senior executives are keen to engage in discussion and debate with technology partners. Bloor brings relevant service and technology partners together with our CIO and leadership communities, in ways that maximise the value to both, making them mutually beneficial conversations. Bloor events enable CIOs and other senior executives to come together with technology vendors and service providers in a non-sales environment for the mutual benefit of both the vendor and the business. What sets Bloor apart from other providers are three key points:
  • We have close relationships with many of the most successful CIOs around the world
  • The calibre of our facilitator, often an ex-CIO, will create a frank, honest, and constructive atmosphere where you can gain the insight into what your target audience thinks.
  • Being vendor, media & research agnostic, we are recognised by the CIO community as an independent voice, able to create mutually-beneficial conversations between CIOs and vendors
Bloor is happy to assist you if your organisation is running or participating in an event. For instance, we can provide a speaker on an appropriate topic from among our independent analysts or a facilitator. Where appropriate we can carry out background research on the issues being addressed. For more information, please contact us.

IT Governance: Being Strategy Enablers

28th April, 2015
9:00 am - 11:30 am
Event Category:
Attending from Bloor:

Tim Walton, Non-Executive Director and independent consultant, Tim Walton & Associates

Andrew Marks, Former CIO, Tullow Oil

About the event

The CIO of today can no longer simply align his IT strategy to the corporate Business Strategy.  The IT strategy needs to reflect how “information technology” needs to be embedded within the whole organisation.  That way, IT has a greater chance to be a true enabler of the business strategy, ready to drive value and always assuring consistent and reliable internal and external customer services.

This meeting will address what CIOs are doing to build relevant and appropriate IT Strategies and how they are developing them in partnership with peers such that the goals of the IT function can develop business measures of success to demonstrate its performance.

An IT governance framework will be presented which will answer key questions on how the IT department is functioning overall, what key metrics management need and what return IT is giving back to the organisation from the investment its making.
