Making the Leap From CIO to COO
November 28, 2017
SIM CGN: Career Growth & Networking Education - November 2017 Monthly Call

In a continuation of the theme of talking to people on the “Front-lines of Business”, Greg will be discussing with us as to why he saw the next step of his career being the COO position. This is a career direction that all of us can, or should be, relating to. It is what we have been hearing for years; is the top CIO or CTO now really the COO of an organization?  Greg will be expressing his thoughts on this very relevant topic.
