"I have observed after hosting these CIO gatherings for 20 years that you need to be associated with and surrounded by the best in order to reach your highest personal and professional potential. The corporate 'immune system' is very strong. It doesn't like change and will actively discourage new ideas and people who take action. However, CIOs who surround themselves with peers who think in a powerful, transformational, and different way will be able to thrive with disruption and business ambiguity and will win professionally and personally." - Bill
