Speaker Selection Process
For all MIT Sloan CIO Symposia we typically recruit speakers 2-4 months in advance. Speakers are primarily active, practicing CIOs of organizations. In addition, we recruit experts in certain fields (such as economists, lawyers, academics, government officials), depending on the conference theme and session content.
Conference themes and session topics are chosen by the MIT Sloan Boston Alumni Association, and the MIT Center for Digital Business, in conjunction with members of our advisory team.
Speakers who meet the above criteria are always welcome to submit any ideas, or suggest areas of expertise they'd like to talk about. Vendors who are sponsors of the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium events are typically given the opportunity to have a speaker at concurrent breakout sessions, provided they relate to the overall conference theme.
It's a wonderful way to participate in the event and interact with attendees.
