I'm a more effective CMO and leader thanks to the relationships and insights I have made from The CMO CLUB
The CMO Club and dinners are great because there are no hidden agendas, other than to learn from each other and network, in an engaging, comfortable environment.
Some experiences like the CMO Summit are difficult to describe until you actually step into the moment.

Thanks for including me in such a unique opportunity to re-energize my passion for Marketing
