In episode #2552, we take a closer look at the decline of the CMO role — and what CMOs can do to turn things around.

In our conversation we look at the lack of trust CEOs have in their CMOs, why this is the case, and what skills CMOs should master to reform their role and become an asset to their organization. The role of the CMO can be incredibly powerful in driving business outcomes.
