The CIO & IT Security  Forum | Now in Its 20th Year

Our conference program is refreshingly different to what you're used to seeing at regular tradeshows and conferences. Why?

  • Built Around Your Needs: We create The Forums conference program based on research and feedback from our clients, senior level IT executives, who like you are dealing with critical issues on a daily basis
  • First class speakers: Conference sessions are led by peers or industry experts, who have a clear understanding of the business obstacles inherent in controlling large technology departments and how they can be managed and resolved.
  • Intimate sessions: Sessions are for small groups of under 25 delegates. This environment encourages attendees to be able to share best practices, successful case studies, and receive opinions and suggestions from their colleagues.

  • An Evening of Entrepreneurial Spirit, Social Responsibility and Radical Business Philosophy

    Jerry Greenfield, Co-Founder, Ben & Jerry's Homemade, Inc.

    Jerry Greenfield and his long-time friend and business partner Ben Cohen are the men behind one of the most talked-about and least conventional success stories in American business. Co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade, Inc., Greenfield has helped to build a store front venture into an ice cream and business phenomenon by making social responsibility and creative management strengths, rather than weaknesses.

    With his best seller, Ben & Jerry’s Double-Dip: How to Run a Values Led Business and Make Money Too (co-authored with Cohen), Greenfield created both a nuts-and-bolts guidebook to the promise and pitfalls of “values-led” business, and an inspiring wake-up call about the growing international influence of the “socially conscience” or “mission driven” corporation.

    Bringing his business acumen and passion for creative and responsible business practices to life at the podium, Greenfield delivers an inspiring tribute to America’s entrepreneurial spirit. Jerry’s talk embodies the great sense of fun that is the company’s hallmark…and did we mention that Ben & Jerry’s ice cream is provided free to the entire audience?

    About Jerry:

    Jerry Greenfield met his future business partner, Ben Cohen, in junior high school, and the two have remained friends ever since. After high school, Greenfield enrolled at Oberlin College to study pre-med. At Oberlin Greenfield got his first taste of the ice cream industry taking a job as a scooper in the college cafeteria. In 1977, Ben and Jerry joined together in an unlikely venture: running a food business together. They eventually settled on ice cream, and, after a bit of research (and a $5 Penn State correspondence course in ice cream making), opened Ben & Jerry’s Homemade ice cream parlor in Vermont in 1978.

    Ben and Jerry became known throughout Vermont for their rich, unusual flavors and community oriented approach to business. As the company expanded, Jerry handled everything from distribution to orientation to employee motivation. A model for American business success, Greenfield and Cohen are recognized for fostering their company’s commitment to social responsibility.
