Exclusive CMO Event: Branded Customer Communities Featuring Wendy Lea

Are you a VP of Marketing or a CMO located in the Mid-Atlantic region?

If you are, you’re invited to a private CMO Discussion Group and Wine Reception entitled “Customer Community is the New Marketing: Are CMOs Ready?” The session happens on December 2 at Cesco Osteria in Bethesda, MD from 5:15-7 pm.

If you are facing stagnant growth, or want to kick start customer-driven product innovation in 2015, this exclusive CMO event is for you. A recent Incyte Research study revealed that 42% of customers surveyed would freely advocate a company’s product or service within their social communities. Are you leveraging this untapped opportunity, or relying solely on your internal teams for new revenue and customer retention ideas?

I will be leading the discussion with Wendy Lea, Executive Chairwoman of GetSatisfaction in San Francisco. In this session, you will learn:

  • Why the relationship between customers and companies needs to evolve—and why CMOs should care
  • How one-way customer broadcasts can destroy a brand
  • The role of the CMO in designing, building and fueling a vibrant community platform
  • Lessons from branded customer community leaders such as P&G, Adobe, Mint, and HootSuite

You will be joined by your peers from Hilton, Decision Lens, and Walker & Dunlop. Our sponsor is Evergage.

No executives in transition, substitutes, or agencies will attend.
