Transforming the Business: How CMOs Can Lead

CMOs have worked for years to demonstrate marketing’s value not only in driving brand and demand, but in truly leading strategic change for the business. Today, with virtually every company doubling down on innovation and business transformation, CMOs have an enormous opportunity to rise to the strategic occasion.

Panasonic, which just celebrated its 100th anniversary as one of the world’s leading innovators of consumer technology, illustrates the opportunity in high definition. Far beyond its consumer tech roots, Panasonic in 2020 is staking its claim in North America as a provider of industry leading B2B solutions in such areas as smart mobility, next gen food retail, sustainable energy, and immersive entertainment.

Join Panasonic’s Lauren Sallata and Jarrett Wendt and ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt for a lively discussion of how one CMO is tackling the challenge, what transformative business leaders need from marketing, and how CMOs can balance the parallel priorities of delivering the marketing goods today while preparing the organization for longer term growth and change.

  • Content that Connects: Accelerating Demand with C-Suite Content Recorded: Feb 12 2020 61 mins
    Rob Leavitt, SVP, Consulting, ITSMA & Leslie Cozatt, Sr. Director, Integrated Marketing, C-Suite Audience Engagement, Optum
    Absent compelling content, the most carefully designed campaigns fall flat. The challenge, of course, is that our customers and prospects are inundated with content and tune out all but the most timely and relevant material. And the C-suite audiences we all want to engage are the toughest of all.

    Marketers obsess over the newest tools and channels (TikTok, anyone?) but what we say is at least as important as how we say it. Yes, we’re all moving to more video and interactive (as well as back to direct mail), but how can we ensure that the core of our campaigns is substantive content that our audiences actually care about?

    Crafting compelling content, especially for executive-level audiences, is no simple task. Join ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt and Optum’s Leslie Cozatt to explore what the most skeptical buyers are looking for and how the most successful marketers are developing and using C-suite thought leadership content to accelerate demand in the most challenging markets.

  • Effective Storytelling for B2B Marketing Recorded: Sep 18 2019 57 mins
    Vincent Rousselet, ITSMA, Andy Philp, VMware EMEA, and Jeff Barak, Amdocs
    Faced with a deluge of content, a war for the attention of B2B buyers is being waged. In a Martini world of “any time, any place, anywhere” marketing, this struggle has become ferocious.

    For B2B marketers, it sometimes feels as if all of the team’s energy has gone to managing the complexity of omni-channel, data-driven marketing, rather than coming up with engaging content that talks to buyers as people.

    Because storytelling engages audiences, it can help win this battle for attention.

    That’s easy to say, but harder to execute: while marketers typically spend 60-80% of their day writing, they aren’t always good at telling stories. And ITSMA’s annual survey of critical marketing skills continues to show storytelling as a top 10 competency that is valued by B2B organizations.

    Like with all skills, the more you use it, the better you get at it. But how do you get going? And what are the experts’ favorite tips?

    During this webcast, three practitioners will share their experiences:
    -Vincent Rousselet, VP, ITSMA, will provide a simple and practical toolkit for storytelling, as well as a few secret sauce ingredients marketers can get started with.
    -Andy Philp, Solution Product Marketing Lead, VMware EMEA, will share how storytelling is being used in communicating, highly effectively, one of the company’s key offerings.
    -Jeff Barak, Corporate Editor, Amdocs, and former editor-in-chief of the Jerusalem Post, will describe the role and value of a corporate editor in a B2B context, and the cross-over with journalism.

    Account-Based Marketing (ABM) has taken the B2B world by storm. Marketers are building out programs and ABM ROI is higher - often double or more - than any other type of marketing.

  • ITSMA's 2019 State of the Marketing Profession Recorded: Mar 22 2019 40 mins
    David Munn, President & CEO, ITSMA and Julie Schwartz, Senior Vice President, Research and Thought Leadership, ITSMA
    As marketing continues on its transformation journey, we see that increasingly marketing is being recognized for its impact on revenue growth and value to the business. Marketing’s influence is on the rise and it’s more than influence on pipeline and revenue. Marketing is on the path to become a strategic growth driver, forging new relationships, collaborating across traditional silos, and helping their companies to become more customer centric.

    ITSMA’s 2019 State of the Profession briefing provides critical data and insight on the rise of marketing influence as a leading trend for B2B marketers this year. The briefing, led by ITSMA’s Dave Munn and Julie Schwartz, highlights the growing investments that leading B2B marketers are making to play a more strategic role and contribute to growth. The data shows how the scope of B2B marketing responsibilities continues to expand with a greater role in strategy and execution, and as well as continued emphasis on strengthening relationships through engagement and advocacy.

    In addition, the briefing provides a broader look at key findings from ITSMA’s 2019 Marketing Budgets and Trends Survey. Using the findings from the study, Dave and Julie explore such issues as:

    - Marketers’ strategic priorities for 2019 and how these have changed in recent years
    - Marketing budget growth and allocation changes
    - The gap between how marketers and senior management perceive marketing performance
    - The balance of digital and offline marketing tactics
    - The need to improve marketing agility
    - Continued focus on account-based marketing
    - Marketing skills in greatest demand

    Along with data from our recent research, the briefing provides marketing leadership examples from companies including LTI, Vodafone, HCL, Microsoft, and Tata Communications.

  • Connecting with Executives: What Really Works? Recorded: Feb 6 2019 59 mins
    Rob Leavitt, SVP, ITSMA & Julie Schwartz, SVP, ITSMA
    Content marketers have made great strides in recent years, but connecting effectively with senior executives remains one of the toughest challenges. C-suite and other top executives at our customers and prospects are absolutely interested in new ideas, new ways of doing business, and innovative solutions… so long as they are truly relevant, credible, and timely. Executive standards are really high and breaking through the competitive noise is no simple task.

    Join ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt and Julie Schwartz to review new research on executive preferences for content and engagement, and five guidelines to orient content marketing to what really works to connect with the executives that matter most.
  • Reaching the C-Suite: Engaging Executives with Ideas and Innovation Recorded: Aug 8 2018 59 mins
    Rob Leavitt, Senior Vice President, ITSMA
    B2B marketers have long invested in thought leadership content to demonstrate expertise, fuel issue-based campaigns, and equip sales for higher level conversations.

    All too often, however, we still struggle to reach the C-suite. Senior executives are more important than ever for B2B marketers, but they are notoriously the toughest audience to engage. Their time is short, their BS meters are on high alert, and they ignore all but the most compelling content.

    The good news, however, is that senior executives are anxious for new ideas, and they’re happy to engage when approached in the right way. Join ITSMA’s Rob Leavitt to explore highlights of five specific ways in which leading companies stand apart from the rest in developing and using thought leadership content to engage at the executive level and drive reputation, relationships, and revenue.
  • ABM and the Three R’s: Measuring What Matters Most Recorded: Jun 7 2018 62 mins
    Rob Leavitt, Senior Vice President, ITSMA
    The rise of ABM has inspired an important rethink of how best to measure marketing impact. Rather than focus on activities, outputs, and marketing-qualified leads, ABM-ers are shifting to account-based revenue metrics, such as pipeline contribution, funnel velocity, win rates, and deal size. But not all revenue is created equal.

    Driving growth with new types of solutions, marquee accounts, and top priority markets can be especially significant to achieve strategic corporate objectives. To move ABM from revenue contributor to strategic growth driver, ABM-ers need to focus on all three R’s of strategic marketing: Reputation, Relationships, and Revenue.

    Join ITSMA SVP Rob Leavitt to explore how the most effective ABM programs are bringing the 3 R’s down to the account level and using them to drive long-term corporate innovation, growth, and success.
