We’re going B2B (back to Boston) for Season 5, Episode 7 of the #B2BMX Podcast! Today, you’re getting exclusive access to #B2BSMX’s CMO Panel, where a series of industry hard-hitters provided actionable insights into achieving C-suite status, including the obstacles they encountered and how they overcame them.
Led by Sangram Vajre, the panelists — Shawn Herring, Head of Marketing for PandaDoc; Deanna Ransom, Head of Marketing at Senzing and former CMO of Televerde; and Gaurav Bhatia, CMO at PenFed Credit Union — discussed everything from their journeys to their current roles to the best ways of establishing respect amongst colleagues. Specifically, the panel touches upon:
- How to break through VP- and Director-level roles to hit the C-suite;
- The qualities attributed to “good” and “bad” CMOs;
- The importance of being flexible and holding open conversations about your goals;
- How to build credibility without becoming a “yes person” to get to your desired outcome; and
- Much more!
