The New ‘Digital’ CMO

Keynote Presentation - 8:10 am - 8:40 am

One of the most compelling questions that CMOs must answer today is that of how digital marketing is affecting their role and by extension how the CMO now fits into the management team. The fact of the matter is that the importance of marketing is increasing within the enterprise as it moves to become increasingly data driven and the CMO needs to be the catalyst that helps the team make this transition. Marketing leaders need to understand the digital impact and use it to drive new strategies, new decision making, new technologies as well as new roles and responsibilities for not only their team, but for themselves as well.


  • The role of the CMO is undergoing significant evolution, evolution that is set to continue well into the future
  • Technology is becoming increasingly important in the success of the marketing department and both the CMO and the team need to become technology savvy
  • Data is driving everything and using it to understand channel results allows for marketing leaders to make more efficient and more effective strategic decisions
