We believe that CIOs are the CEOs of the future. Our goal is to inspire high-performance IT leaders to innovate and transform their current mindset.
We provide the framework for CIOs to surround themselves with peers who think in a powerful, transformational way so they can thrive and win amongst disruption and business ambiguity.
"I have been inspired by how many of you are wanting to interact with your peers and know that times are changing and that this is a GREAT time to be a CIO..."

Who We Are
The CIO Innovation Forum, was founded in 2000 by Bill Murphy as an innovative idea to connect CIOs and high-level IT leaders who share similar vision and goals for themselves and their organizations.
Bill understands that the corporate immune system is very strong - opposing change, discouraging new ideas and people who take action. However, he knows that when CIOs surround themselves with peers who think in a powerful, transformational, and progressive way, they will be able to thrive amidst disruption and business ambiguity to win both professionally and personally.
In this short video, Bill outlines the benefits of attending each session of CIO Innovation Forum events, his approach of preparing attendees for conversations with like-minded individuals and how you, the A-caliber IT leader, can become a part of this Innovative Community.
The CIO Innovation Forum is not for everyone. However, if you are ready to challenge yourself to grow exponentially and to collaborate on the latest innovations in Offense + Defense strategies consider joining the CIO Innovation Forum.
What We Do
Bill Murphy leads the CIO Innovation Forum for CIOs and IT leaders.
Bill hosts a series of strategic group events and luncheons, including workshops and roundtable discussions. The topics are directly sourced from forum members and are focused around the challenges that impact their businesses most.
Our events provoke an open, collaborative environment to facilitate interactive discussions surrounding current innovation challenges or issues CIOs are facing in the industry.
These conversations accelerate innovation and transformation and are the catalyst for CIOs to help their businesses avoid disruption, develop efficiency, and share tactical and strategic ideas.
Our intent is that council members leave invigorated and are equipped with the tools necessary for innovation and transformation.
These experiences can change the trajectory of where you are going both personally and professionally.

"It provided me with an opportunity to connect with other local executives and also learn about some of their challenges. The session by MAGA Design was also very useful."
- Ramesh Bulusu, United Educators
"At times, CIOs are referred to as Chief Innovation Officers since at the heart of innovation is the 'life cycle of idea generation, interaction, selection and learning.' CIOs should be a part of the CIO Innovation Insider to grow, share expertise, and network with peers and key partners in a trusted environment."
