2009 Media Coverage

Attendees say:

“Networking with other CIOs is a huge benefit. The topics presented by my peer group of CIOs are also done in a candid and transparent manner, with much of the material easily applicable to my own IT operation.”
—Rick Davidson, SVP & CIO, Manpower (2008)

“Fusion is probably the only event I’ve been to in the last two years that I would go back to. It was relevant, it was useful, and it was time well spent.”
—Brian Brylow, CTO, R.W. Baird & Co. (2006)

“I found the joint CEO/CIO session very useful. One of the key challenges for me is alignment with the business and it was very useful to see these two perspectives presented side by side.”
—Philip Loftus, CIO & VP, Aurora Health Care (2008)

“We have a fast growing organization and we came with the intent of absorbing as much as we could. In that respect, every presentation was invaluable to us and provided us with terrific insight.”
—Nels Andersen, CTO, Franklin Energy (2008)

“Fusion 2008 illustrated the power of sharing. The collective thoughts that intertwined in the presentations and discussions are invaluable”
—Oskar Anderson, CIO, State of Wisconsin (2008)

“I thought the topics were spot-on relevant.”
