CMO Momentum 2019

A conference focused on leading and
sustaining the modern marketing function


Today’s CMO leadership is about building a strong company-wide culture that addresses these market demands through agile decision making, an emphasis on innovation, experimentation, data-driven accountability and diversity. To continue to shape their future, marketing leaders need to possess a broad range of leadership behaviours and skills, from strategic and commercial nous, to adaptability, creativity in leadership, an ability to partner and a serious focus on people.

The CMO Momentum conference, brought to you by CMO, deep dives into customer-led and inspired marketing leadership in a data-driven, hyper-connected world, where consumers control the conversation, technology and data smarts are vital to success, experience is the key to competitive advantage and change is the new normal.

Through our full-day conference in Sydney and new half-day event in Melbourne, we delve into the practicalities and challenges arising from these “new norms” of marketing through a program jam-packed with perceptive executive stories, customer expertise, real-life brand and technology case studies and industry insights.

Our pioneering and highly interactive executive networking roundtables also give attendees and sponsors the opportunity participate in interactive discussions around key pillars of modern marketing leadership.

6 core competencies of the CMO

The program for CMO Momentum follows extensive consultation with marketing leaders across Australia and is based around addressing 6 core pillars: Strategic performance, commercial acumen, adaptability, innovative thinking, collaboration and people. Within these, CMO has built a program that focuses on the key areas of focus and capability for modern marketing leaders, incorporating areas such as Customer engagement and insight, collaboration, c-suite clout, culture and team capability, curiosity and systems excellence.
