THE COMMERCIALLY DRIVEN CMO - Practical discussion on communication strategies used during board and leadership meetings

CMOs who can demonstrate they’re commercially driven, can think like the CFO and COO will gain the trust of the CEO, leadership team and board.
But what does a commercially driven marketer look like in practice?

Join this practical discussion and learn exactly what and how three B2B CMOs discuss:

  • How, at board and leadership meetings, they come armed with numbers and metrics behind the levers of growth. The actual numbers and metrics they’re reporting on and how they’re telling and defending the story behind the numbers. What’s fuelling them and the levers they pull to change them.
  • Their relationships and examples of good and bad conversations they have with their CEOs, CFOs and boards
  • Their forecasting strategies, how they’re communicating bad as well as good news
  • Recommendations for how to become a commercially savvy marketer

THE ART OF ZERO-BASED BUDGETING – ARE YOU MAKING TRANSFORMATIONAL MARKETING INVESTMENTS?

This session is for marketing leaders who own budgets or emerging leaders hoping to be responsible for budgets.

According to Group Lark, 80% of marketing budgets are exact repeats of the previous year’s – but, how can you drive transformational marketing if you stay within the status quo year on year?

During this session three B2B CMOs will discuss budget allocations and rations into programs, headcount, tech, agencies and partners.

  • Their frameworks for zero-based budgeting – How they break the budget cycle, where and how they free up money to innovate, and how they zero-base their spend
  • Stakeholder management – Does your stakeholders understand and are they aligned on what the marketing budget is going to deliver?
  • Is your budget simply handed down as a gift or do you have a respected voice when arguing your business case – aligned with business objectives?
  • Examples of when their budgets have failed, characteristics of low performing vs high performing budgets
  • How they are aligning their teams around spend
  • Marketing budget allocations as a % of company revenue and ROI targets

SCALING ABM PROGRAMS IN 2022 WITHOUT LOSING EFFECTIVENESS

Account based marketing is in high demand because of the impact it can have on revenue, relationships and reputation. If you’ve launched a successful program, you might find other parts of your business are keen to adopt your approach. Or perhaps you’re the one pushing to maximise the benefits by expanding to different regions or industry sectors. But how do you know when you’re ready to scale, and what approach to take?

In this session we’ll learn how to successfully scale their programs in APAC through real life examples, and will answer questions including:

  • When’s the right time to scale my ABM program?
  • What are the differences between scaling 1:1 and 1:few or 1:many ABM?
  • What governance or processes should I have in place?
  • What technology and data assets are needed to scale?
  • Which teams do I need to get on board to help me scale?

CUSTOMER MARKETING STRATEGIES AND PROGRAMS FOR 2022 - Showcasing best practice customer engagement strategies and programs

Before the pandemic, customer marketing was often neglected and only a very minimal amount of marketing budgets were allocated to existing customers in replace of focusing on new demand and lead generation activities.

However, during the pandemic B2B organisations learned to preserve their customer relationships and strengthen their commitment to customer-centricity. As such we’ve seen a strong re-focus on nurturing and growing existing customers with up-sell, cross-sell and focus on increased share of wallet.

Customer marketing is emerging as a critical function needed for businesses to retain, engage and grow customers in a more strategic way.

In this session, we will showcase best practice customer engagement strategies and programs. Topics covered will include:

  • Building blocks for customer marketing with focus on lifetime customer value
  • Customer engagement, advocacy & VOC
  • Budget allocations to retain, engage and grow existing customers
  • Examples of customer engagement and advocacy programs
