Women, Technology & Confidence
It Takes Action, Not Acting
Over the course of my technology career, I have received a lot of advice from mentors and business leaders on how to get ahead. One common bit of guidance I've heard is this: "fake it till you make it." To me, the adage always meant that I should pretend to have confidence when embracing a workplace challenge and, in time, true confidence will follow. Act confident and eventually you will be confident. As I consider findings from the recent Harvey Nash Women in Tech survey, I am reconsidering the fundamental message in that mantra, which I don't think is quite right. Perhaps "acting" is not what is important but the action itself is what matters. Should women be acting or taking action?

What You Need to Succeed as a CIO Today
On October 31, KPMG and Harvey Nash hosted a webinar to which 600+ IT and business professionals registered to hear about the complex and changing role of the CIO. Why would so many, on a Halloween Monday no less, be eager to listen? For two reasons. First, we were sharing key findings from the Harvey Nash/KPMG CIO Survey, the world's largest IT leadership survey. Second, my KMPG co-host and our two guest speakers are pioneering thought leaders who are working to shape the digital business landscape of tomorrow:
The What's Now and What's Next for Digital
As we begin Q4, many business leaders are taking a hard, realistic look at what digital transformation has meant in their organizations and across their industries. How are competitors succeeding and where are they falling behind? How are customers behaving? What trends shaped the digital and business landscape in 2016 and what should we expect for digital in 2017? Take a look in my full blog, "The What's Now and What's Next for Digital" featured on CIO.com.
