Join us for our annual CMO Fireside – the “She-Suite” and listen as local North Carolinian CMOs discuss 2021 and the future of marketing
Join us for our annual CMO Fireside chat – the “She-Suite” and listen as North Carolinian CMOs discuss their take on 2021 and what’s in store for the future of marketing. This year we’ve teamed up with AMA Charlotte to include female-identifying CMOs from various verticles all over North Carolina to create a well-rounded view of where we’ve been, where we’re at, where we’re going, and what we’re doing to keep North Carolina competitive in 2021 and beyond.
They’ll share insights and trends, as well as discuss the importance of data… how they’re using it, what they’re tracking, and how to maximize ROI as they’re building their strategies in this ever-changing world.
