Both Australia AND New Zealand appoint their first-ever Chief Digital Officers: Paul Shetler and Jon Cumming.

Paul was most recently CDO at the Ministry of Justice and Government Digital Service in London, and Jon was most recently the CIO at the Department of Corrections in New Zealand. Congrats and welcome to the CDO Club!

The President of the United States (POTUS) just joined Twitter today - no doubt thanks to the White House's new Chief Digital Officer Jason Goldman, who was previously a Twitter co-founder and executive.

Our first-ever CDO of the Year (2013), +Teddy Goff​, quoted in this LA Times article: 

“The core of what we’re trying to do is serve people with an experience that they’re going to enjoy, that’s going to enlighten them and hopefully inspire them to get more deeply involved in the campaign,” Goff said.

http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/la-na-hillary-clinton-digital-20150715-story.html
Hillary Rodham Clinton wound down her political operation in 2008 with 2.5 million email addresses in her campaign database. Seven years later, when campaign officials turned on the lights in April, they were stunned to find fewer than 100,000 still worked.

Pretty wild! Her lack of presence on non-Twitter social media in the years between campaigns is especially shocking. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that nurturing that sphere since '08 would have put her in a pretty strong position.

I was quoted in this MIT Sloan Management Review study: "Strategy, not Technology, Drives Digital Transformation."

Its from MIT's 2015 Digital Business Global Executive Study and Research Project with Deloitte University Press.

The 2015 Digital Business Report by MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte identifies strategy, not technology, as the key driver of success in the digital arena.

Introduction
I am curator of the Chief Digital Officer Summit and founder of the CDO Club.

The CDO Club is the world’s largest network of Chief Digital Officers (CDOs).

Over 65% of global Chief Digital Officers are members. 

We help our members - and their organizations - deal with digital disruption, find exceptional leaders, build effective teams, maintain competitive advantage, and engage with their customers and partners more deeply through the use of digital, mobile, social media, and cloud services.

I was previously founder and Managing Director of the Digital Media practice at Chadick Ellig, a premier executive search firm that Business Week named one of “The World’s Most Influential Headhunters.”

I was Executive Producer of Home Aid, a campaign to benefit the homeless with consultant Ken Kragen (Live AidNet AidWe Are the WorldHands Across America).

My book, Be The Media, was featured in the NY Times after pre-selling 5,000 copies in 11 days via social media.

I've keynoted everywhere from the United Nations (3x in 2010) to Columbia University and National Speakers Association, from Amsterdam to Zagreb.

My award-winning radio show included guests Seth Godin, Wired co-founder Kevin Kelly, singer Jill Sobule, craigslist’s Craig Newmark, and Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales.

From 1999-2002 I was CEO of Kinecta, where I raised $30 million in 2 years. Kinecta is now part of Oracle <NASDAQ: ORCL>

From 1994-1999 I was Vice President with Reuters, where I pioneered online syndication, years before RSS was invented.

I have served on numerous boards including Director of Home Aid America.
