“Transforming your company’s vision is an exercise in getting outside yourself. Such a perspective is critical whenever the status quo is under a fundamental disruption that promises to redefine the ground of competition categorywide.”
— Geoffrey Moore, Author and Futurist
The AIIM Executive Leadership Council brings together top thinkers, high performance practitioners and leaders in information management to discuss, define, and direct the Future of Information Management.
Annual summits create a shared space for dynamic conversations to determine the role of the content and information management industry in a new era of business which addresses Social, Mobile and Cloud computing. The AIIM Executive Leadership Council has two goals:
- Articulate the impact that these new technologies will have on the workplace
- Define specific use cases for how the technologies can transform organizations and ways of work.

Thornton May, master facilitator of the Executive Leadership Council work sessions
Thornton May is Futurist, Executive Director and Dean of the IT Leadership Academy. His extensive experience researching and consulting on the role and behaviors of Boards of Directors and "C" level executives in creating value with information technology has won him an unquestioned place on the short list of serious thinkers on this topic. May combines a scholar's patience for empirical research, a stand-up comic's capacity for pattern recognition and a second-to-none gift for storytelling to the information technology management problems facing executives.
"Thornton is in the top tier of business technology industry intellectuals. I personally think he is a genius. My definition... smarter than me and most everybody else... always is out front on ideas and uses completely fresh perspectives on issues and challenges in business...and balances it all with razor sharp wit. Nobody ever goes away after an encounter with Thornton without being enriched."
— Barbra Cooper, CIO, Toyota USA
"Thornton May is the real deal. A daring intellectual in a business filled with fakes, Thornton encourages us--no he FORCES us--to sit up, pay attention and think hard about the real issues we face every day."
— Seth Godin, Author of Permission Marketing and Founder of Yoyodyne
