CIO Development

Cathy Holley

For 25 years I have worked with global boards in all sectors to help them understand what a good CIO/CDO/CTO looks like. In my role as a leading technology headhunter, I have been proud to place some of the top technology leaders in the world. Today, as a coach, I help these leaders (and future leaders) to consider how they can become more effective in their roles or to prepare them to navigate the hiring process obstacle course, to secure the right next role for them. I remain well connected with the movers and shakers in technology headhunting.

Whether you are focused on enhanced performance in your current role, or you are preparing to change roles, it is vital that you understand how best to manage stakeholders, influence boards, demonstrate commercial acuity, inspirational leadership and strategic vision.  If you are exploring new opportunities, you will need to sell your skills and experience in this highly competitive market. Does your CV differentiate you from other world-class technology leaders? Will your interview skills position you as an outstanding leader? How would you fare if benchmarked against the market?

I am delighted to be working with some of the most influential advisers in this space, such as CIO Development, Marlborough Consulting and The Corporate IT Forum, who are firms that share my passion for supporting technology leaders who want to differentiate themselves from the crowd and maximise the value of technology to their business, customers and teams.
