Episode No. 5: The Modern CMO
April 16, 2020 – 22 min.
It’s not easy being the CMO, especially today. The Chief Marketing Officer consistently has the shortest tenure in the C-suite and navigates an ever-increasing list of responsibilities as new technology develops. But CMOs have a unique opportunity precisely because they stand between customers and the corporation. They can help lead the C-suite toward a common set of goals for the short and long term.
In this episode, CMOs from Levis Strauss & Co., Hilton, and Foot Locker, Inc. share what it means to be a “modern CMO,” and how to elevate the role as a true business leader. We’ll also hear findings from a study by Google and Deloitte that explores how Fortune 1000 corporate board members perceive CMOs.

Even before a large segment of the population found itself working at home, people were turning to online video to learn a new skill, get information straight from the source, connect with communities and creators, or simply get stuff done. One of the more popular genres people turn to is the “with me” video. In this episode, recorded shortly before the COVID-19 outbreak, Kevin Allocca, head of culture and trends at YouTube, and Sadie Thoma, director of U.S. creative partnerships at Google, reveal what these videos and creators can teach us about forging authentic connections with viewers and how you can drive discovery on a massive scale that still feels personal.
