A place where CIOs come together.
In 2009, Microsoft put forward the idea of getting a group of CIOs together on a regular basis to discuss matters of relevance to their sector. Today, between 100 and 150 of SA's leading CIOs come together on a quarterly basis at Summer Place in Johannesburg to do just that at the CIO Council.
The CIO Council of South Africa is an independent body of professionals. The council and the topics it tackles are decided by the members.
The 2014 board of the CIO Council of South Africa comprises Len de Villiers (Telkom), Louise van der Bank (Afrisam), Carol Thomas (Avbob), Johan Bosch (Microsoft), Piet Janse van Vuuren (The Thinking Cap) and Ulrike Weitz (Microsoft).
