 Testimonials


"The Leadership Workshop was the first SIM event I attended as a new member and I really enjoyed it. The networking time at the beginning of the event gave me the opportunity to meet and introduce myself to other members and reconnect with previous colleagues. The workshop itself was an engaging mix of learning and active participation. The interesting part is how Mark used Aikido examples to reinforce strategies of how to successfully respond to change in the workplace. It was both informative and entertaining – a unique spin to delivering a leadership workshop."

"I have been a member of SIM San Diego for less than 8 Months. In that short time,  I have made invaluable contacts in IT and Cyber Security. Recently, through collaboration with another organization that SIM made possible, we set a course to keep our information better protected at home or overseas. We have just scratched the surface of possibilities that come with being part of SIM San Diego. I looked forward to our future endeavors."

Eric Dixon

Regional CIO

 

"I have been an active participant and supporter of the San Diego SIM chapter for many years in various capacities. I have consistently found this forum to be a very valuable and productive use of time, not only to keep current pace with the latest IT trends and not only to continue to network with a core set of IT peers around the region, but most importantly to create a connected San Diego IT community to address common issues and challenges that impact and effect all of the IT leaders in the region independent of industry, business model and company size. The San Diego IT community is fairly small in terms of market capitalization supported, but it is very active and relevant in terms of thought leadership and willingness to share ideas. It has been a thoroughly rewarding experience to date and I’m sure will continue to thrive guided by the consistent and passionate leadership of the founding members."

"I joined SIM as a founding member of the San Diego Chapter.  Traditionally I was primarily involved in professional organizations specific to my industry. SIM facilitates sharing of information across industries which is both refreshing and enlightening.  Educational forums provide opportunities to learn from future thinking individuals as well as provide practical information to assist in solving today’s issues.  I also appreciate the opportunity to interact with organizations of different size and complexity.  I encourage those who want to broaden and enhance their knowledge to join SIM.”

"I have found SIM to be an invaluable organization. It has been a source of personal and professional development opportunities, and through SIM I have built relationships with several interesting and experienced IT leaders in the San Diego region and beyond. Several of these busy professionals have provided career assistance and advice to my students. As an educator, I appreciate SIM's interest in nurturing the next generation of CIO's and IT thought leaders. The San Diego chapter has done a fantastic job of inviting university students to participate in networking and growth opportunities and their generous scholarships have encouraged students to stay focused on careers in IT leadership. All of us have many valuable organizations vying for our time, but I am committed to participation in SIM because of its strength as a learning community that connects IT leaders  locally and globally."
