    What CEOs Want From Marketing and Marketing Leadership

    It’s no surprise that marketing has become more technical, more quantitative, more data-driven. CMOs who built their careers doing a different type of marketing are now struggling to be effective leaders in organizations that expect them to be both creative and analytical at the same time. The requirements for modern marketing leaders to be successful are so demanding that CMOs have the shortest tenure of any executive – just 16 months on average. In this session, a former CEO who, as a result of an acquisition, now serves as a VP of Marketing speaks candidly about what a CEO expects from a high-performing marketing team and what takes to be a successful CMO today.

    Shifting from Traditional Waterfall Funnel to ABM: A Case Study in Going All In

    We searched all over the region to find the best case of account-based marketing around and we found it… in Atlanta’s CollabNet, the Sirius Decisions’ Winner of the 2017 ABM Program of the Year.

    Account-based marketing is certainly gaining momentum, but many teams are still figuring out whether ABM is right for them. Other teams know they want to make the switch to ABM, but are unsure how to move forward. In this session, Director of Marketing Operations and Demand Generation Jodi LeBow will discuss why they chose to go all-in on ABM.  She’ll talk about what that really meant, and lessons learned during implementations – from the challenging culture shift to how they measure success.
