Put Those Networking Skills to Work

Some people say CIOs are short on networking and schmoozing skills, but Radio One Inc. CIO Leslie Bauer and Cooper Communities Inc. CIO James Craig apparently know how to work a room. The two CIOs first met at last year's CIO Decisions Conference in Pebble Beach, Calif., and returned to this year's Carlsbad event as a pair engaged to be married.

During the week, the couple attended how-to sessions on negotiations, mergers, budgeting and discovering single versions of the truth (all good topics for newlyweds). But with Bauer based in Lanham, Md., and Craig working in Rogers, Ark., what they really need from CIO Decisions magazine, Craig quips, "is a story on how to deal with long-distance relationships."
