The good news: the economy is slowly picking up speed, and consumers’ spending habits are reflecting that. The bad news: consumers are still being very cautious with their dollars, and they are now hyper-connected with each other and the media, granting them unlimited information and opportunity to scrutinize. Consequently, today’s CMO faces a lot more pressure to demonstrate value to consumers in a much more competitive market. There is an intensified need to maintain the exceptional components of a strong brand identity while also constantly re-tailoring the brand to the changing wants and needs of the modern consumer. Similarly, while CMOs feel pressure to maintain strong traditional marketing channels, they are faced with the challenge of taking advantage of the multitude of opportunities within digital marketing and smoothly integrating these into their overall marketing strategy.

Argyle Executive Forum is bringing together leading CMOs and marketing leaders from a variety of industry verticals to discuss best-practices and innovative marketing strategies in a discussion-based format at our 2014 CMO Leadership Forum taking place in LA.
