The Albany IT Symposium Is A Single Day IT Conference Giving Local IT Leaders A Chance To Network, K

The Albany IT Symposium is returning to the Albany Marriott in Albany, New York on April 25th, 2018. This is a one-day, executive-level event designed for CIOs, CISOs, and their management teams. There will be an expected 200 IT Executives, representing over 50 companies in attendance.

This year's event will feature three keynote sessions and a multi-track set of 12 breakout sessions including our highly anticipated executive panels: Virtual Reality Panel, Cyber Security Panel, Smart Cities Panel, Diversity in the Workplace Panel and IT Governance Panel.

The opening keynote speaker is Harry Campbell, Author, Get-Real Leadership. Harry takes the tenants of servant leadership and infuses them with his own business philosophies developed while working at Fortune 500 companies including Procter & Gamble (P&G) and Sprint, as well as smaller private companies. His presentation results in an empowering and fresh approach to managing people and business that he calls, "Get-Real Leadership".

Afternoon keynote speaker is Kurt Kemmerer, COO - CoreTech Solutions Digital Technology at GE Digital. His presentation, "Managing Through Adversity" will focus on hearing what matters and the different considerations that are needed in situations (both globally and locally). And how to survive in making hard decisions and leading teams through challenging events or when significant change is required.

Karen Geduldig, Executive Deputy CIO for the New York State Office of IT Services will deliver the closing keynote presentation titled "Innovation That Matters... For All New Yorkers". To register you and your team members for this event please visit:
