Our handpicked Advisory Board is finalised and we are incredibly grateful to all the confirmed board members who will be joining us throughout 2022! Click here to see who has joined our board ( 

The board consists of 20 C Level executives covering; UK, France, DACH and Benelux from a variety of industries who will be assisting the Global CIO Institute with their future agendas and content, ultimately looking after the broader interests of our CIO community.

The CIO Institute is also immensely proud to boast that many of our board members were named in this year’s CIO magazine Top CIO 100.

Graeme Howard, CTIO at Covea Insurance has not only joined us as a board member but often chairs and presents at our flagship events across the UK.

Graeme in response to being awarded the #2 slot this year in CIO’s magazine top 100, recently posted on LinkedIn; “Such an accolade for the entire Covea team, recognising all the hard work and effort they have put in over the last 12 months and the amount of progress that we have made, despite everything that life has thrown at us.

After hearing about these awards a good few years ago it became my goal to get a place on the list, and of course try to go higher. We were bowled over at #11 last year - ecstatic to get the recognition, and ranking so highly against such a strong and diverse set of other teams this year.

I just want to say thank you to all members of the Covea Digital team for making this happen and to all our key partners that have joined us on the journey”.

Our board met virtually for the first time for a kick-off advisory board event on Thursday 4th November with the CIO Institute's vision at the heart; to become the most engaging and effective platform for senior IT leaders and vendors, to learn, develop and create lasting business partnerships.

Jeremy Cooper, Founder of Balanced Life also joined us for a 20 minute ice-breaker where he shared the ‘5 steps to unlocking your potential; the journey to high performance and balance’ with a focus on;

  • The 5 steps taken to high performance
  • Productivity time limits
  • The pomodoro technique
  • Mindset of a high performer

The 2 hour session was full of fantastic discussions and debate and many of our board members will be speaking at our upcoming physical events throughout next year (  Monthly, they will also be writing and sharing unique pieces of content accessible to CIO members which are not to be missed!  

If you too would like to become a member of the CIO Institute please contact - we look forward to welcoming you.
