ABOUT CXO DISRUPT SYDNEY

OmniChannel Media’s “CxO Disrupt” series is a by-invitation-only event series that brings Australia’s leading C-Suite executives up close and personal with the technologies, and organisations, disrupting the way they do business.

Disruption is a vague term that in short looks at change. This change is typically driven by a technological innovation, or the changing appetite of customers. The challenge for Australia’s C-Suite fraternity is understanding how to develop a strategy in order to respond to this change. Without building out a plan to adapt of evolve, organisations will lose their relevancy to the consumer. 

The response? Innovation, transformation, and finding the ability to adapt. To do this CxO’s must use technology to evolve their businesses. This is where the “CxO Disrupt” community comes in, OmniChannel Media’s event series offers the opportunity for C-Suite executives to come up close and personal with relevant technology that will act as an enabler to this change.  

The events foundations are built of showcasing quality content and offering the opportunity for high-level networking. We look forward to having your involvement in this important industry initiative. Our mission it to help organisations evolve and adapt, join us as we attempt to open showcase the power of technology to Australia’s leading C-Suite executives.

Gender & Cultural Diversity:

OmniChannel Media is proud to promote gender and cultural diversity at a C-Suite level. In 2016 our goal is to achieve 40% (as of June, sitting at 54%) diversity at all of our events, working through to a full 50% diversity for 2017.

We look forward to producing CxO Disrupt Sydney within the context of this policy.
