Roundtables

About the IT Executive Roundtables

The DNA of Solutions II includes a passionate focus on learning and professional development. We have taken that company core value and created forums that will foster that spirit in the community we serve. With nearly 30 years of working with Enterprise IT Leadership, we created, fostered, and facilitate these free Roundtables. We started the Roundtables in 2013 and shifted to video conferences due to the conditions in 2020. We meet monthly for one hour and we can guarantee that Roundtable Members will learn something during that time and be able to expand their professional networks. Each meeting includes a Subject Matter Expert speaking on a timely and relevant topic and free discussion among Roundtable members. Our Roundtable currently consists of more than 200 members.

    “The East Bay CIO Roundtable provides a valuable network of technology thought leaders. I’m able to learn how others are helping their organizations address topics, such as digital transformation, security, and business growth strategies, while contributing my own strategies as well.”

  • RoundtableTestimonial_Lumentum

    “I learned early in my career that I had just two eyes, two ears, and one mind in a vast and rapidly changing technology and business landscape. When I step into the CIO Roundtable, I have access to dozens more. These women and men have been a significant part of who I am as a CIO and leader over the past decade. The collective wisdom and heart in the room is a huge asset to those privileged enough to attend these sessions.”

    --Ralph Loura, SVP and CIO, Lumentum

  • RoundtableTestimonial_Levi

    “I have had the good fortune to have been part of the CIO and CISO Roundtables that are facilitated by John and his firm Solutions-II for many years. The size of the Roundtables has grown dramatically, but the quality has not suffered. John has that rare knack to identify candidates that can and want to both share their knowledge and listen and learn from others. I continue to look forward to these meetings as key opportunities to compare notes with my community of peers.”

    --Steve Zalewski, Interim CISO, Levi Strauss, Former VP Cybersecurity, PG&E
