Three of our region's top tech organizations are coming together for an evening of networking and fun.   Walt Carter, CIO, change leadership master, and author of “We Can't Stay Here: Becoming A Great Change Captain,” will share his observations about keys to transformational leadership that often don’t get spoken about.  He’ll share leadership stories and lessons to help you become a difference maker, lead change for your team, and give you some keys for a winning transformation.

Please note the change in location and day of week...
This event is at Brier Creek Country Club on Tuesday, May 10.

Walt is adept at working through complex business challenges and has successfully implemented several enterprise-wide packaged software solutions.  Walt is a frequent speaker to professional groups on the topics of leadership, governance, risk management and compliance.

After earning a BS in Physics from Guilford College, he began his career as a technical officer in the US Air Force, and over the years he has served in a variety of technology leadership roles with companies such as Fidelity, Gannett, BDM, TRW, and Ajilon Consulting.  Walt earned a master’s degree in Public and Private Administration from Central Michigan University in 1991.  While at TRW, he won the President's Award for his leadership on their largest commercial project. Walt was named Corporate CIO of the Year in 2014 by the Georgia CIO Leadership Association and more recently has been named to the Constellation Research “Business Transformation 150” for 2020.  His recent book, We Can’t Stay Here: Becoming a Great Change Captain, is an international #1 bestseller.
