Join us for our fall CTO/CPO Leadership Exchange, exclusively for Tech, Enterprise and IT Executives from growth-stage technology companies. This is a casual event where executives can discuss current issues, network, share and get inspired by others. 
The night will feature a conversation around tackling the frustrations of a CTO, led by C.J. Montano, Managing Director and Partner at Forte Group. C.J. has led technology departments at Echo Global Logistics, kCura (now Relativity) and CME Group. 

Leading a technology organization is a tough job. Struggling to deliver value, adapting to changing business needs, dealing with massive turnover and staffing issues, all while driving innovation—these are just some of the daily challenges tech leaders face.

How do you tackle these frustrations and move faster? Discuss with C.J. and your fellow attendees how today’s technology leaders are addressing these challenges. Topics covered will include:

  • What are the biggest challenges we face, as technology leaders? How do we solve them?
  • How do you maximize quality and consistency from product and engineering teams?
  • How do you evolve beyond maintenance mode and drive innovation?
  • How can leaders create alignment between business and IT?
