The third meet up where brilliant minds got together to drive Innovation!

A full house with brilliant minds at Swedma, our host for the evening. An evening dedicated to innovation. The idea was to let our members inspire each other to drive innovation within more or less complicated organizations that need support to take that big step forward.
We heard so many great ideas during the evening and many contacts where made.

A big thank you to everyone who came and a special thanks to our host Malin Anglert at Swedma and our main presenter Marie Andervin from DigJourney.

See you at the next event in November and please make sure to invite likeminded to the network.

It started as an important and needed “side project” for Cecilia and me. We couldn’t find a network to support us when it comes the future role of the CMO so we started the international network CMO goes TECH in December 2017.

We are now ready to take the next step – to launch CMO goes TECH globally and we need your support to make it possible.

Make sure you're signed up on our website and then help us recruit new members by making them sign up on the same site. New members can mention who recruited them during the signup process.

The persons who have recruited most new members by October 1st, 2018 will be awarded with:
1st prize: Free workshop session (2 hours) with Cecilia and Gül on the topic of marketing and technology.
2nd prize: The recently released book – and a special CMO goes TECH signed edition!  -
How to fix the future by Andrew Keen. Author, journalist, entrepreneur and founder of Futurecast.
Andrew is a well-known commentator on the digital revolution. He is the author of four books and an executive director of the Silicon Valley innovation salon FutureCast, the host of the Internet chat show “Keen On,” and a senior fellow at CALinnovates.

About CMO goes TECH
Our international network is for everyone working as CMO, innovation director or similar. Like-minded people who are interested in exploring trends and technology that are most likely to affect marketing ahead. We encourage our members to share their ideas and get inspired in return. And it is free for our members!

We aim to have international meet ups focusing on relevant topics you decide upon, support and knowledge exchange from other members, collaborations, recruitment possibilities and much more. If you believe this is the right way forward, please invite the best persons around who have an interest in the network – friends and colleagues.
