With the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) growing, we are postponing this event.

Please join the Wharton Club of Chicago for the Executive Dinner Series with Joe Chung, CTO | Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services, the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, on Wednesday, March 18th. The Executive Dinner Series requires you to be a member of the Wharton Club of Chicago to participate.

The dinner will take place over a five-course dinner with beer and wine in a private room at Maggiano’s Little Italy in River North. Attendance will be limited to 12 people so that all participants have a chance to get to know Joe and each other in an intimate setting.

Joe Chung AWSJoe will share insights on how Amazon organizes for innovation. As part of the open discussion, he can take a deep dive into the four key aspects: Culture, Mechanisms, Architecture, and People. Amazon seeks to invent on behalf of their customers to create delightful experiences, and we hope the discussion will inspire some ideas of how your company can adopt the ways Amazon implements digital innovation.

In his role, Joe works with enterprise technology executives to share his own experiences and those of other customers. He helps companies develop strategies for rapidly taking advantage of cloud capabilities to keep pace with innovation and build for the future. He was a managing director at Accenture with his previous role as Chief Architect and Group Technology Officer for Accenture’s IT organization. Joe led the company’s transition to the cloud including a large scale migration, cloud native development and building a data lake to enable advanced analytics and insights.

Joe has learned from experience that the move to the cloud requires a transformation of people and culture as much as a technical transition. Joe earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan and a master's degree in business administration from Kellogg's Management School of Business at Northwestern University.
