Why You Should Attend!#ArgyleCMOSF
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 their hyper-connectivity with each other and the media has given them room to be more critical. Consequently, today’s CMOs face much more pressure to demonstrate value to consumers in a much more competitive market. While there is an intensified need to maintain the essential components of an exceptional brand, CMOs must constantly re-tailor their brand to the changing wants and needs of the modern consumer. Additionally, while CMOs feel pressure to maintain strong traditional marketing channels, they are faced with the challenge of integrating multiple new digital technologies into their marketing strategies.
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 2013 CMO Leadership Forum taking place in San Francisco. The forum will focus on several areas including (but not limited to): renewing and strengthening the focus on the consumer, the key elements of an exceptional brand, understanding and utilizing social media in a meaningful manner, the changing role of the CMO, understanding the impact of digital marketing on the modern consumer, and how to take advantage of these changes.
This event will feature insights from top executives, including:
