What differentiates CMOtalk from other networks? The caliber of speakers consistently brings fresh, thought-provoking perspectives, expanding my horizons. The community is exceptional too – at a recent gathering in Het Scheepvaartmuseum, I felt the camaraderie and the chance to exchange ideas with peers in a relaxed setting. I would absolutely recommend it to fellow CMOs. It‘s a refreshing departure from the usual routine, providing invaluable external insights and inspiration. If you’re a marketing leader seeking fresh ideas and meaningful connections, CMOtalk is your go-to resource.

My journey with CMOtalk was a natural extension of my involvement since the podcast‘s early days, around 2016. I engaged with Klaas’ events and discussions under the CMOtalk banner. So, when he introduced the idea of membership, joining was a logical progression for me. It provides me with consistent inspiration. Regardless of the event’s nature, I always leave with something that stimulates my mind. These takeaways continue to fuel my thoughts and contribute to my professional endeavours. I would recommend this community without a doubt, definitely!

Becoming a member of CMOtalk was driven by my thirst for learning and inspiration from diverse perspectives. What I love about this network is encountering individuals I wouldn‘t typically connect with in my insurance circle. So, what have I gained? A fresh network, including people I can turn to with questions, like-minded individuals who’ve navigated challenges similar to mine. The proximity within this network fosters easier, more meaningful exchanges compared to cold LinkedIn approaches.
