PEABODY, MASSACHUSETTS ( – North Shore Bank’s Chief Information Officer, Sheryl Shinn, has been selected to speak at the upcoming Women in Tech Boston conference at the Signature Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on October 20th and 21st.

The two-day in-person event will unite over 1,000 attendees to experience the power of resilience. Featuring over 80 expert-led sessions the event has been specifically designed to give attendees the opportunity to increase their technical skills, elevate their careers and develop their professional network with like-minded women. It marks one of the first Women in Tech events to return to Boston in-person offering a unique opportunity to build connections face-to-face and an unforgettable experience to reinvigorate how attendees approach their careers.

Shinn is responsible for developing and implementing practical, customer focused solutions that streamline processes through the use of technology, and effectively execute the Bank’s digital transformation strategies. She said of her participation at the convention:

I look forward to sharing insights learned from North Shore Bank’s focus on improving the customer experience through its digital transformation strategy. Customer engagement is not all about the technology solution. If you really want to connect with your customers, solve a problem for them. The key is to be passionate about the problem, not the solution. And that problem is most likely to change frequently so the solution has to be resilient.” She added, “I am excited to join conference attendees in learning more about resilience in technology but also in careers and business, a key theme of Women in Tech Boston.

Michaela Jeffery-Morrison, CEO and Founder of the Women in Technology World Series stated:

Our collective experiences of the past year have allowed us all to realize the power of face-to-face interactions in creating real and valuable connections. Our theme for The Women in Tech World Series 2022 is Resilience; resilience in your career, resilience in business, resilience in the tech we are building and using while making significant contributions to positive steps in the diversity and inclusion movement.

Shinn will be joining Kate Prouty, SVP and Chief Information Officer at Akamai, Jean Olive, Chief Technology Officer at Best Buy Health, Bela Labovitch, VP of Engineering at athenaHealth, Pamela Taylor-Paris, Senior Director of Software Engineering at Salesforce and Neema Uthappa, Head of Engineering - Cloud Data Analytics & AI at McKinsey & Co. with many more speakers to be announced weekly.
