      CMO Priorities for 2019 Vasu Jakkal, EVP & CMO, FireEye Recorded: Dec 5 2018 9:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Marketing today plays a central role in driving growth as businesses look to win the most important real estate in the world – a piece of your heart and mind. As our world rapidly evolves with the physical and virtual blending, consumers are increasingly engaged in digital self-nurture, complemented by analog immersive experiences that strengthen our bonds.

      CMOs are expected to be business leaders and change agents with “THINK BIG” strategies. We are expected to define brand purpose – have the vision and “why narrative” and to keep the company aligned to its NorthStar. We are expected to tackle big market trends with the magic of storytelling that’s supported by data, analytics, and digital platforms – combined with human-centric understanding – to drive revenue and deliver exceptional customer experiences.

      The CMO’s role has never been more exciting or more relevant, and in this talk we will explore what 2019 holds for us and what trends, disruptions and priorities we need to flawlessly address in order to win hearts, minds and $.

    • From CMO to CGO: Marketing Takes its Seat at the Revenue Table
      From CMO to CGO: Marketing Takes its Seat at the Revenue Table Liz Miller, CMO Council, Daniel Gaugler, PFL, Maneeza Aminy, Marvel Marketers and Scott Vaughan, Integrate Recorded: Apr 30 2018 6:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • The CMO role is in a time of great change. On the B2C side, we're seeing several noted CPG brands like Coca Cola eschewing the CMO role and instead hiring Chief Growth Officers. In B2B, there is some traction in the rise of CGOs but the broader trend shows the CMO role becoming much more metrics and revenue-driven. It's an exciting time for marketers but it's critical to understand what's driving this dramatic shift.

      Liz Miller, SVP, Marketing at CMO Council will host a lively roundtable with several notable CMOs. In this session we'll explore why this shift is happening, how businesses should think about these leadership roles, and what this means for Marketing as a whole.

      You'll learn:
      - How the emergence of key technologies has powered the shift to CGOs and revenue-focused CMOs
      - How the need for growth influences breaking down old siloes across organizations and placing big bets on innovation
      - What a CGO does and whether your company needs one today

    • The Evolution of the CMO
      The Evolution of the CMO Martyn Etherington, Mitel; Chris Hummel, Siemens; Steven Bushong, Disney ABC Television Group; Liz Miller, CMO Council Recorded: Dec 13 2012 5:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • Strategic leadership does not rest with the CEO alone.

      Impactful leadership requires an approach that leverages highly strategic executive talent across multiple functions acting as a fully integrated team.

      An increasingly important voice at the table is that of the chief marketing officer (CMO). As organizations across all industries strive to set themselves apart from their competitors, marketing has taken on new prominence. Highly effective CMOs are moving well beyond the longstanding role of being the proxy for the customer to one in which they provide strategic leadership, drive change, and achieve quantifiable business results.

      Join this panel session to learn how CMO's are increasingly intertwined with the business and are contributing to fundamental business transformation.

      About the panelists:

      Martyn Etherington is the EVP & CMO at Mitel. With over 25 years, he has a proven record in transforming the marketing function to a measurable customer-centric, market driven organization and commercial general management leadership for emerging markets.

    • CMO Rising: Reshaping The Role
      CMO Rising: Reshaping The Role Liz Miller, SVP Marketing-CMO Council, Ken Wincko, SVP, Marketing-PR Newswire, Martyn Etherington-CMO Summit Chair Recorded: Dec 1 2015 6:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • While the appointment of a CMO sends the right signal, the credentials, character and capability of this emerging C-level executive member are of critical importance to internal acceptance and permanency. Combined with title inflation in the C-suite with multiplying turfs and sub-divisions of responsibility, including “chiefs” of revenue, digital, data, customer experience, relationships, insights and innovation, chief marketing officers are constantly being challenged to fortify their positions, expand authority and assert ownership of critical leadership roles in their organizations.

      Along with trying to establish themselves in the C-Suite, global marketers are also facing an increasingly complex, distributed and digitally driven marketing ecosystem. With unmeasured pressure to better integrate and manage data, best of breed solutions, creative resources, brand assets and go-to-market functions, they are also called on to collaborate on an unprecedented level with CFOs, CIOs and COOs as well.

      A true CMO must be the CEO-in-waiting, groomed in all aspects of the business and a true leader and value-setter for the organization. Many CMOs aspire to this role, but few make it to the corner office and even less serve on corporate boards. As the realities and requirements for a CMO are reflected in the selection and appointment process, this is likely to transform.

      Please join the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Council in a live, one-hour, interactive webinar as we discuss our upcoming CMO Summit in Napa and how the role of the CMO must be reshaped in order for the CMO to rise as a true business leader.

      Some of the broad areas we will explore include:

      •The biggest shifts in the CMO role during the past five years
      •What has most impacted the CMO role: talent, technology or transformation of the business and the customer?

    • Get To Know A CMO
      Get To Know A CMO Frank Grillo, CMO, Harte Hanks ; Liz Miller, SVP Marketing, CMO Council Recorded: May 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Imagine, for a moment, walking into a store where you have only made a purchase one time before. The salesperson runs up to you and greets you by name, and before you can get a word in edge-wise, he offers you five other products that are almost identical to the one you purchased before. Then, without warning, he invites you to talk with five other customers who not only look eerily similar to you, but are also all wearing the same item you purchased. Then, as you begin to hasten your exit—because at this point, you are fairly certain that the salesperson is a stalker—he begins to shout down the corridor after you, begging you to come back and offering you coupons and discounts as your brisk walk turns into an all-out sprint away from the insanity.

      It is so easy to imagine this scenario in real life, but it is far more difficult to admit that this is the very experience that many of us have inadvertently created for our customers across the omnichannel landscape. So it begs the question: When did we forget how to build real relationships with real, live human beings?

      In this latest installment of the CMO Council’s thought leadership series, “Get to Know a CMO,” Liz Miller will have a one-on-one session with Frank Grillo, Chief Marketing Officer at Harte Hanks, seasoned veteran of the advertising, marketing and telecommunications industries, and a passionate advocate for bringing the human back to marketing.

      Join the CMO Council as we hear Frank’s position on what customer centricity truly is (and what it isn’t), how marketing can be made human again, and where we lost our relationship skills somewhere along the way. Liz will also be asking Frank about his own path to becoming a CMO, which has seen stops along the way as the COO of telecommunications companies and a long track record of serving as the chief growth engine and customer experience orchestrator for large, dynamic organizations.

    • Everyone…it’s time to play Buzzword Bingo! Join the CMO Council as we delve into the biggest buzzwords that terrorized brands and marketers throughout 2014…and we predict what the big buzzwords will be that we will try to outrun in 2015.

      Now we are dealing with BIG DATA, personalization, and omni-channel experiences. Tomorrow we will obsess over the Internet of EVERYTHING. So, what is the reality behind these big issues? How much of it is hype and how much is really being applied in winning strategies? Where have leading brands learned to steer clear of the hype and maximize opportunity?

      While we have a couple buzzwords in mind, we want to hear from you, so register for the webcast and be sure to tweet out the biggest, buzziest catchall phrase that you have been grappling with this year.

    • Much has been written about the need for partnership and alignment between the CMO and CIO. In the CMO Council’s own investigation into the relationship, we have seen the ebbs and flows of this critical dynamic.
