CMO50 2019 deadline extended to 12 August

Final due date of 12 August to be considered in Australia's premier list of modern marketing leaders

CMO is extending the submission deadline for this year’s CMO50 program to a final due date of Monday 12 August based on overwhelming demand.

Now in its fifth year, the CMO50 is Australia’s highly prestigious list of innovative and effective marketing leaders. Since its inauguration in 2015, the list has become a well-respected benchmark of excellence in marketing leadership, celebrating all the things that make modern CMOs successful and influential in their organisations.

The CMO50 isn’t just a stamp of recognition for the leader either; it’s a clear sign of the excellence exhibited by their marketing function. This accolade should therefore be seen as a reward not just for CMOs, but their entire teams.

Those wishing to be considered for the 2019 list MUST complete a submission in order to be in the running. You’ll find our questionnaire online and in downloadable form here.

The CMO50 is open to the top Australia-based marketer within an organisation with responsibility for the vision and strategy of the whole company marketing function. The ambition is to celebrate excellence through:

* Business contribution and innovation 
* A customer engagement-led approach to marketing
* The application of data/technology in marketing strategy 
* Empowered and strategic thinking
* An ability to effect change in the organisation  
* Demonstration of marketing’s commercial effectiveness
* Team and people development

The due date for submissions has now been extended to a final deadline of Monday 12 August 2019. All submissions must be sent to CMO Publisher and Editor, Nadia Cameron: nadia_cameron@idg.com.au

Only one questionnaire is required for each individual candidate. Please note questionnaires are kept confidential between the CMO team and our CMO50 judging panel.

The 2019 CMO50 list will be first revealed at our exclusive CMO50 dinner in Sydney on Thursday 17 October 2019. Those who submit will automatically receive a complimentary invitation to this salubrious, invite-only event.

So there’s no time to waste – get those submissions completed and sent in now!
