Gartner Closing Keynote: Leadership Acceleration — Opportunities for 2021

Many leaders learned to lead differently as a result of the global pandemic and the challenges that came with it. But as is often the case, great lessons can often quickly become unlearned when the crisis abates, or when there is a perceived light at the end of the tunnel. Leaders and enterprises risk returning to the comfort of old habits, rather than institutionalizing leadership innovations. This session will focus on the top CIO leadership lessons to keep from 2020, to advance and accelerate their leadership in 2021.

Join us to hear from Gartner experts and thought leaders.
