What makes some CMOs more
effective than others?

Successful CMOs know there’s strength in numbers. They never stop learning. And they rely on their peers. Our membership of over 750 heads of Marketing gain access to 5-6 local dinners in 20+ cities a year, twice annual CMO-only Summits and their “secret weapon”: Exclusive CMO content created by you, for you. The World’s best CMO conversations happen here, with no vendor selling, behind closed doors.

  • “[The Summit] was by far the most valuable CMO event I have attended so far in 2013. This is the most engaged group of CMOs I know.”

    - Paula Puelo, CMO, Michaels
  • “Every CMO Club Summit I attend, I end up with 2-3 impactful ideas for my company. Nothing is better than getting great ideas from your peers without vendors trying to sell you something.”

    - Evan Greene, CMO, The Recording Academy (Grammys)
  • “Nothing challenges me more to improve as a leader to my team than seeing what others are doing to motivate and lead their organizations. Thanks to The CMO Club for creating a real community of CMOs.”

    - Ashley Sheets, CMO, Gamestop
  • “I have never been in the same room with so many bright marketers and leaders, all focused on helping each other. The Summits and dinners are unlike anything else I have ever attended.”

    - Nancy Smith, CMO, iRobot
  • “You’ll get engaged marketing heads, focused on helping each other, behind closed doors. Great inspiration as well.”

    - Fred Neil, VP Marketing, The Home Depot

  • CMO Club Innovation and
    Inspiration Summit
