Inspire Your Team

Attracting and developing talent is fundamental to the success of every great CIO. An exclusive benefit of InspireCIO membership is access to the Inspire Leadership Academy, offering leadership development programs for CIOs, Executive Leadership Teams & high-potential leaders in your IT organization.

You can’t find a higher class of talent and great people than what is now currently encompassed within DallasCIO. I don’t call these people colleagues, I call them my friends and for me that’s important to be part of an organization like that.

Sherif Mityas, Chief Experience Officer

There’s no textbook that tells you how to be a good CIO. The best way you can learn and keep up with what’s going on is to talk to your peers and share best practices. I think our companies are much stronger because we have this incredible network.

Becky Blalock, CIO (fmr)

I have 100+ people now that I can reach out to you and say, “I’ve got this problem...how did you handle it?" And sometimes getting advice on what not to do is as important as getting advice on what you should do.

Lee Crump, Group VP & CIO

Senior executives are pressed for time. So, we have to be very picky about what we attend and what we sign up for. With InspireCIO, there are so many good opportunities to connect with CIOs. There’s never really a lack of opportunity to meet and greet or just spend quality time with other CIOs.

Jay Ferro, CIO

InspireCIO gives me the opportunity to ask my peers their feedback on different vendors, technology challenges, and how they are solving problems. I very seldom deal with significant technology challenges without reaching out.

Brian Shield, VP IT
