Signature Speaker Series
CMOs Are From Mars, CIOs Are From Venus: How They Obtain Objectives From Different Orbits
“Digital” is everywhere. CMOs want to leverage it to connect with customers. CIOs want to provide great response times and keep the company secure. How do marketing and technology departments get on the same page to improve their businesses? How do they advocate for one another?
Join us on WEDNESDAY November 15 at the Cintas Center as we partner with The Circuit to bring you an engaging discussion between CMOs and CIOs to talk about what the future looks like.
The panelists will be discussing the intersection of marketing and technology departments and how to maintain that healthy friction, from being a scaling small business to a large corporation.
