The CDO Summit is the “must-attend” digital event of the year. The 2013 and 2014 CDO Summits received stellar endorsements from dozens of speakers and attendees alike:

  “Sometimes a conference comes along that hits the trifecta – hot topic, high-caliber attendees, and stellar location. The first Chief Digital Officer Summit reached that mark with ease, and I look forward to attending the next one.”
Eric Hellweg
Managing Director, Digital Strategy/Editorial Director
Harvard Business Review

“The Chief Digital Officer Summit was outstanding. Why? Candid panels with top players in the digital community. Splendid break-time conversations. And, savvy facilitation, Mathison Style.”
Margaret Molloy
Chief Marketing Officer

“David, here’s a handy C^3 test for conference value: Did I learn at least three new perspectives? Check. Did I meet at least three interesting people? Check. Did I take back at least three relevant pieces of news I can use? Check. Flying colors for the Chief Digital Officer Summit 2013! Thank you so much, and yes, I’d be very pleased to participate next year!”
Perry Hewitt

Harvard University

“Congratulations on an exceptional first CDO Summit. I truly enjoyed all the panel discussions as well as the intimate environment where I was able to meet such amazing people. The conversations were very enlightening and touched on all the challenges my team and I face on a technology, content, and culture front. I look forward to participating next year.”

    I find it curious that many top CDO’s do not have very high Klout scores. Could it be there are so busy engaging on behalf of their organizations that they don’t have time to worry about their own influence?

    • Robert Berkman

      Robert–Interesting observation. On the one hand, of course we are looking at “relative” scores within the context of Klout scores of CDOs and high is defined vis a vis the other CDOs. But in terms of absolute Klout score, keep in mind that while the numbers and prominence of Chief Digital Officers are growing rapidly, they are still a bit under the radar in terms of how well known they are to the general and business public; and while some professionals (and of course celebrities) work diligently and strategically at boosting their social media profiles, CDOs are going to be most focused on getting their job done.

    I find it curious that many CDO’s do not have extremely high Klout scores. Could it be they are so busy engaging for their organizations they don’t have time to worry about their personal score? In my opinion, Klout many not be accurate in terms of ranking CDO’s influence in the marketplace.
