A “Safe Haven” for CMO Reinvention, Brainstorming, and Reflection
Are you looking for that 1% extra competitive edge?
Do you struggle to move initiatives forward in the C-suite?
Feeling isolated in your current role?
Are big data and social media causing big headaches?
Marketing Leaders of Atlanta™ may be the solution.
This exclusive, confidential CMO group is designed to help you:
Set clear priorities
Eliminate feelings of “C-suite isolation”
Validate plans with a seasoned board of advisors
Jumpstart your new job or initiatives
Slash the time required to identify the best resources
Increase commitment from your CEO and board of directors
Our group purpose is to gather and inspire senior marketing leaders to share ideas and resources, create a forum for breakthrough innovation, and raise their level of personal performance. We discover and deploy new strategies to help CMOs thrive in the midst of dramatic digital, market, and organization change.
Why consider applying to the group?
The role of the CMO is changing rapidly. You need a safe haven for reinvention, brainstorming and reflection. Classic networking associations and vendor-led groups do not provide this accounability and peer support.
Membership includes these benefits:
Insight from other seasoned marketing executives in a confidential setting—competitors never join the same group
Five private meetings a year at a predetermined, convenient location
Personal introductions and access to a global resource community (agencies, recruiters, VC firms, marketing automation firms, etc.)
A seasoned group leader who will provide fresh thinking around your key issues
Optional quarterly conference calls and breakfast meetings with market makers such as Dell CIO Adriana Karaboutis, Cintrifuse’ s Chairwoman Wendy Lea, and former Eloqua CEO Joe Payne
Complimentary admission to our CMOs Leading Innovation Conference (CLIC)
A members-only library of exclusive content, videos, and marketing planning resources
1:1 planning and mentoring session to keep you consistently moving forward on your top priorities
Member discounts on products, programs, and services offered by EnergizeGrowth®

Is membership right for you?
Marketing Leaders of Atlanta™ may be a fit if you...
Need to boost top line growth
Own profit and loss for your marketing organization

Are sincerely growth-oriented and action-oriented

Marketing Leaders of Atlanta™ may NOT be a fit if you...
Work for a marketing agency, PR firm, or social media company
Need a place to socialize or promote your services
Think peer groups are a luxury, not a priority
Work for a lifestyle business or a company in the steep decline
Dislike and resist accountability systems
Want free advice, but are not willing to help others
Believe you can “go it alone”
Work for a company facing severe internal or operational challenges (e.g. hostile takeover, divestiture, negative cash flow, etc.)
If you are like many CMOs, you are overworked, under-staffed, over-stimulated by technology, and under constant budget scrutiny.
When faced with these opportunities, most marketing leaders choose to work harder. It’s natural to avoid creating white space on the calendar to step back, reflect, and re-calibrate.
That’s exactly why we created a safe haven for CMO innovation and reflection—the Marketing Leaders™ Community. Classic networking associations and CMO affinity groups do not provide this level of value and accountability.
We launched the Marketing Leaders of DC™ in 2012, and have now expanded to Atlanta. We also host virtual communities for CMOs: Making Marketing Waves™
Today, we are honored to host private gatherings with market pacesetters from Adobe, Bozzuto, Infor, Hilton, and GE, as well as purpose-driven, mid-sized companies generating between $30M-$2B in revenues. I am also privileged to advise several of these organizations to help them shift from “order takers” to “marketing innovators” and design new value streams.
