“A Safe Haven” for CMO Reinvention, Brainstorming, and Reflection

Why consider applying to the group?

The role of the CMO and Chief Growth Officer is changing rapidly.

“VUCA” (volatility, uncertainty, chaos and ambiguity) are at an all-time high.

That’s why we have created a safe haven for reinvention problem-solving, and reflection. Our group is designed for leaders with a growth mindset. We create the conditions for you to be an effective executive.

Traditional networking associations and vendor-led “clubs” do not provide this accountability and peer support.

What our members are saying

Being a part of Marketing Leaders community has been an exceptional and unforgettable experience. I joined the group as a VP of Marketing to help me grow into a CMO role. Lisa and the group provided the support and expertise to confidently achieve that audacious goal. I highly recommend this peer group for any marketing executive looking to drive their careers forward.

Jennifer Groese, SVP of Marketing, AVOXI

I fully endorse the Marketing Leaders of DC™ organization. It’s a great forum to share experiences and stay current on modern marketing trends.

Chip Coyle, CMO, Blue Prism

Lisa helped us maintain a maniacal focus on helping our teams understand the new mission. As a result, we have stopped having so many discussions about areas that are no longer driving business growth. Within months, marketing employee engagement scores grew to some of the highest in the company.

CMO, $2B publicly traded company

My membership in the Marketing Leaders of Atlanta™ has really been invaluable. I learned new strategies to improve the conversion rates of a digital campaign that resulted in a 20% improvement in performance.

Jeff Perkins, CMO, ParkMobile

I appreciate the community Lisa has created. After our meetings, I bring back actionable, proven marketing plans and solutions to my executive leadership team.

Jess Lasko, CMO, Capital Bank of MD

 Had we not worked with Lisa on our growth plan, we would not have the framework to reach our 30% growth target. This initiative was the big boost that pushed our company forward.

CMO, Fast Growing Tech Company

Lisa’s marketing expertise and CMO communities are ground-breaking. They have contributed significantly to our team’s ability to contribute to 25% profit margin growth over the past three years while I led marketing at Celerity.

Jen Kern, CMO, Qu POS

The Marketing Leaders sessions are groundbreaking. Lisa’s network enabled me to gather some compensation-related data quickly for an upcoming Board meeting. When I look back, I think that this week will be one that changed the trajectory of my career. I’m excited to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.

Time Commitment

This is not a casual “networking group over cocktails.”
If selected, you will commit between 20 and 50 hours per year on improving your marketing wisdom, self-awareness, personal relationships, and business performance. This equates to 1%-2% of your working hours.

We are here to help you design more discretionary and reflection time—a core requirement for every C-Suite leader today.

You benefit. Your team benefits. Customers benefit. And your loved ones will benefit, too.

How are members selected?

This community isn’t for every CMO, EVP of Growth, or Marketing VP. We look for committed, generous leaders who have solid experience in their field.

Prior to your being invited to join, we will have a confidential strategy session to ensure mutual fit.
