The Changing Role of the CMO for Start-ups and Scales Ups

The Changing Role of the CMO for Start-ups and Scales Ups

On the 26th October at 12pm BST,  Hanson Search will co-host a panel event with sister company The Work Crowd to discuss The Changing Role of the CMO for Start-ups and Scales Ups.

In a world progressively focussed towards technology, digitisation and the delivery of a curated customer experience, the role of the CMO is both increasingly demanding and critical to business success. The nature of marketing has evolved so radically in recent years and continues to do so at a rapid pace, the people at its helm must adapt too. So, what does that mean for those in charge and for businesses hiring?

Chaired by The Work Crowd co-founder Madeleine Weightman, the panel of experts will discuss:  

  • The evolution of the CMO role
  • CMO or CCO or CDO – what should a business hire and what is the difference
  • Benefits of CMO
  • Creativity v data
  • Freelance, Full-time or Agency?
