Also, there are at least two more exciting CDO opportunities coming soon to Australia.

Sydney Lord Mayor candidate Christine Forster argues that the City of Sydney needs to appoint a Chief Digital Officer to “address the digital innovation trend that’s radically transforming the economy and altering the way businesses and consumers access local services.”

Speaking with CIO Australia, she argues:

“We are stuck in the past. We have not embraced any kind of digital technology whatsoever, whereas other cities like New York and Brisbane are appointing CDOs because they acknowledge how important it is to get data and digitise systems. It can help you engage with your constituents, it keeps people involved, it improves transparency and delivery of services and it’s the way of the future – and we haven’t adopted any of it.”

As you know, we recently had a historic panel featuring the CDOs from the Australian cities of Brisbane, Melbourne, and the ACT government in Canberra at the Sydney CDO Summit in February 2016.

In addition, Queensland’s Health department is looking for its first-ever CDO, one of two new deputies that will report into acting CIO Mal Thatcher.

Watch this quick video to find out:

The CDO Summit is the “must-attend” digital event of the year. The 2013, 2014 and 2015 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.”

“Congratulations and thanks to David Mathison for spotting the need for community and collaboration in the growing Chief Digital Officer space, and for having the wherewithal, network, and organizational talent to put together such a top-notch event in its inaugural year. Next year’s summit should be even more of a must-do for anyone working digital at senior levels in all kinds of businesses.”

“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!”

“Congratulations to David Mathison and his team on the simply amazing job they did on the inaugural Chief Digital Officer Summit. Probably the most informative, insightful, on target, entertaining, collaborative, thought provoking, and inspiring conferences I have ever attended. I learned more about my business and what I do in the past 12 hours than I have from any research white paper, articles or blogs over the past 12 months. The range of topics and speakers assembled were incredibly diverse, informative, collaborative, and most of all, inspiring. It has invigorated me to be the best possible professional CDO I can be. David Mathison’s skills as a moderator were impeccable, bringing out the best of the speakers and keeping the conversation flowing. His intimate and insightful knowledge of this space is only out-shined by his humility and graciousness. Kudos to David and his organizing team.”
