BIMA Senior Technology Leaders Virtual Roundtable

Posted by BIMA

Online Only Event: We will send you a meeting link once you sign up .

This is the second BIMA tech event curated by BIMA’s Tech Council, and it’s all about learning from and providing insight to the BIMA Tech Leader community to get through this challenging time.

Coronavirus is forcing technical teams globally to work remotely to solve ever increasing challenges with systems, hosting, applications, and innovative solutions. What are the right approaches for Tech Leaders heading up these teams? How can you foster innovation and teamwork with everyone working in isolation?


This virtual roundtable is for Senior Tech Leaders to learn from each other, and to hear from expert speakers about what’s working now and what everyone expects to face next. This is your chance to speak openly about what you are facing with your team, and to exchange advice with peers and experts going through the same challenges.


We want to help tech leaders get through this difficult period. We want to expose you to practical, usable technology insights that you can take back to your team and action immediately.

Additionally, the Tech Council wants to hear your views on how it can better support its members and overcome the challenges aired.


This CTO Roundtable is for senior-level technical leaders who are BIMA members.

If you’ve got front-line tech team stories and want to learn more about how to navigate the waters, we’d love you to join us.

Our Speakers:
