During times of uncertainty, creating communities of like-minded executives and thought leaders is more important than ever. In response, CNBC has developed a slate of virtual experiences to keep business leaders – including marketing executives – engaged, informed and connected in these challenging times and beyond.
As the world enters an unprecedented era, consumers are now engaging with companies across new platforms and in ways that businesses have never seen before. So how should marketers reposition their brands in order to remain relevant, responsive and respectful to disruptive moments in history?
CNBC’s CMO Exchange, led by Senior Media & Entertainment Correspondent Julia Boorstin, will provide a forum for a highly curated group of marketers to discuss how marketing and branding are changing – from the message to the medium.
CMO Exchange is an ongoing series of private, invitation-only discussions for busy CMOs looking to cut through the clutter and make sense of the best strategies and tactics on the path forward in the midst of health, economic, and social crises.
