Need a.... Fresh Perspective? | Confidential Advice?

A Sounding Board to Solve a Marketing Problem?

Laser Advisory Sessions

Let’s start working together to overcome obstacles and capitalize on emerging opportunities. We will Combine your Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) / marketing leadership role with my executive experience as a CMO, P&L general manager and as a CMO executive advisor and coach across 108 CMOs at Forrester and SiriusDecisions as a CMO Executive Advisor, Mentor, and Coach. We will work together to develop an effective plan to strategically position and ignite marketing results at your firm.

Prior to our first advisory session, I will learn about your unique situation and objectives through a brief intake questionnaire. You will come prepared with a key topic or two for us to discuss so we can actively brainstorm solutions. We will have a focused session to address your challenges and identify opportunities to improve your business. Our collaborative session will provide you with a customized action plan outlining some concrete next steps you can take.
