at the CIO Summit
As a reader of the Business Insights newsletter, you’re probably someone who’s tuned into the latest trends in technology and how they can help your business. That’s why I’m excited to invite you to attend the digital Microsoft US CIO Summit on Tuesday, April 9.

This is our premier event for senior IT leaders, and it’s your opportunity to hear from and interact with business technology thought leaders—the people who are at the forefront of the next big developments in IT.

The goal of the Summit is to help you become the most effective leader possible—a business leader who uses technological innovation to drive new revenue streams for your company. You’ll hear from senior Microsoft executives and external experts on topics ranging from the use of technology for supporting today’s mobile workforce, to data-mining for business insights, to the business applications of social networking.

We’re especially excited to feature Luke Williams, executive director for innovation and entrepreneurship at New York University's Stern School of Business, as our keynote speaker. One of the world’s most respected voices on innovation leadership, Luke Williams shows business leaders how to generate the disruptive strategies and deliver unexpected solutions that keep you ahead of the competition.

But the Summit is much more than a lecture series. Digital attendees—that means you—will be fully integrated into the proceedings, with the ability to connect with your peers via Twitter and live chat rooms, where you can explore and share ideas as a community. And of course we’ll have subject matter experts available to answer your questions. You’ll see the first-day presentations, as well as exclusive panels and content just for the virtual attendees, with the opportunity to pose questions and to interact with your peers, be they digital or physical attendees.

This will be a day of active learning and thought-provoking exchanges that you won’t want to miss.
