Future CIO programme for Financial Services

Designed for aspiring Chief Information Officers (CIOs) in FS

The Programme

We have teamed up with a number of academics, influencers and key market participants, to bring you a bespoke programme designed to prepare today’s technology and digital leaders as they progress towards CIO roles in financial services organisations.

The programme is built around three key areas, the powerful combination of which will enable participants to see beyond the obvious and unlock their potential for the future:

  • Business understanding and industry experience;
  • Technology innovation; and
  • Human insight.

The programme equips participants to take an Intelligent Digital approach to addressing the most important business issues, and make an impact at board level both now and in the future. In addition, the programme offers participants the opportunity to build a peer network of lasting, meaningful relationships across the industry.


  • This programme is on hold in 2021
  • Two days of practical learning and reflections, followed by two hot topic breakfasts
  • London


  • High performing individuals in Financial Services, across all sectors (banking & capital markets, insurance, asset and wealth management)
  • Leaders preparing for CIO role in 1 - 3 years
  • Maximum 15 participants


"We have created a cross-FS network amongst ourselves that I know will continue beyond the programme."
