About the Council

The Council is a peer-to-peer hub for C-suite marketing leaders of globally respected organizations.

It serves as a support group, providing exposure to new trends and developments, and when members get together, the knowledge-sharing across some of the smartest marketing leaders is extraordinary. The Council was established in 2014 and has continued to attract both B2C and B2B marketing thought leaders as the marketing discipline has continued to evolve.
