June 8, 2016 marked the third annual gathering of CIOs and executives across Europe at the European TBM Summit. Visionary IT Leaders and market commentators at the Summit discussed a range of topics and shared powerful insights around their integration of Technology Business Management (TBM) and the lessons that come with it.
The Summit was one we will remember for years to come, but there were a few standout moments that we are likely never to forget.
Release of the TBM Book
After years of research, interviews, and multiple drafts, TBM Council General Manager Todd Tucker released the first ever book on TBM! Technology Business Management: The Four Value Conversations CIOs Must Have with Their Businesses was possible thanks to TBM Council Board members and many Principal Members who contributed their time and shared the impact TBM has had driving their businesses. This book is the go-to resource for technology leaders who are striving to become better partners and service providers who deliver business value through TBM.
Launch of the 2016 TBM Nominations
TBM Council President, Chris Pick, announced that nominations for the 2016 TBM Awards are now open! The TBM Awards are the highlight of our year and such a great way to honor IT and finance leaders and teams who are transforming their organizations with TBM. We are receiving daily nominations since Chris’s announcement and are thrilled with the caliber of companies and leaders being represented this year. Submit a nomination from now until July 3. We want to hear from you!
Saving More Lives
The TBM Council was very proud to support Cancer Research UK at this year's European Summit. Su Crighton, Director of Technology & Change at Cancer Research UK, shared how TBM is helping the charity to drive cost savings that support the organization’s research and ultimately, save more lives. Thanks to our generous attendees and auction donations from Etihad Aviation Group, Nationwide Building Society, and Apptio, we generated at least £6,000.00 for this amazing charity.
One of the unique elements of our Summit is the level of networking and the openness with which our delegates share their experiences and learnings with one another – and this year was no exception. Between each session and during the breaks, attendees were engaged in powerful conversations with one another. The networking continued into the evening when attendees boarded the Silver Sturgeon river yacht and enjoyed a “Casino Royale” experience while taking in London’s historical landmarks. These moments of networking provided some of the most valuable takeaways from the Summit and we were thrilled to see the level of engagement and interaction taking place throughout the day.
Until Next Time
We can’t believe the 2016 European Summit is over. We are already counting down the days until next year.
