CIOsynergy Chicago is an exclusive opportunity for leading local CIO and IT executives to network and brainstorm daily hurdles in an unparalleled learning environment under the umbrella of Robert Herjavec. Mr. Herjavec has lived the classic rags-to riches story. At the age of eight, Herjavec and his family left Croatia, sailing to Canada in hopes of creating better life. They arrived in Toronto with a single suitcase, no job prospects, $20 to their name, and dreams of success. Herjavec shared his parents' dreams, and has had no limits. From delivering newspapers to waiting on tables to launching a computer company from his basement, Mr. Herjavec applied his immense energy and ambition with outstanding success. The firms he created proved so outstanding in their operation that they attracted companies such as AT&T and Nokia, who purchased them from Herjavec to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.
Following a short retirement Robert launched the Herjavec Group with a focus on security, storage and virtualization. The Herjavec Group finished 2012 with sales of $118 million – placing it on the prestigious Profit 200 Ranking of Canada’s fastest growing companies for the fifth year in a row, and earning the #1 ranking as the Top Security Company in Canada on the 2012 Edition of the Branham300. Robert Herjavec, TV personality (Dragon’s Den & the very popular Shark Tank) and bestselling author (Driven & recently released – The Will To Win) will give CIOsynergy attendees an unparalleled view of his journey to become one of the world’s top innovative minds.
At CIOsynergy Chicago a panel of leading CIOs moderated by Scott Shuster, will share and explore how CIOs can be successful in their role. Mr. Shuster has led virtually every Business Week CEO, CFO, and CIO conference held since the founding of the magazine’s events group more than 100 of the world’s most prominent gathering of large company leaders and senior executives.
