Or you can register on the conference website




Our May meeting, The Seattle Technology Leadership Forum, promises to be one of the best you’ve ever attended, with compelling speakers addressing a variety of topics spanning technology, leadership and transformation.

What’s different in 2015?  This year’s speakers have been carefully selected by Seattle SIM’s Planning Committee, which has been working closely with a new events management firm.  This is Seattle’s only IT Leadership event produced by IT Leaders, for IT Leaders.  We’ve worked to deliver a better environment for your peer networking and professional development than ever before.  Get more out of this opportunity by adopting a “divide and conquer” approach with your team.  Assign team members to cover different events and report back to the group back at your office. 
Our speakers and panelists include:

Matt McIlwain, Managing Director of Madrona Venture Group
Larry Quinlan, Deloitte Global CIO
Jim Noble, The Advisory Council International
Pauly Comtois, VP of Operations, Hearst Business Media
Brad Schick, CTO and VP Engineering at Skytap
