only 23% of CMOs drive digital transformation. 

time to lead customer-driven lifecycle & innovation now

Would you like to check if your marketing, business development or sales teams are really future-proof and going fast enough to anticipate customer needs? Time to accelerate your strategy, skills and processes.

  • CMOs have a relatively short time span in which to implement their visions

  • The rapid ascent of digital marketing means that they cannot be fast enough to adapt their teams to the right customer experience and analytics requirements

  • As CMOs take on a more strategic, cross-silos focus, they need to gain more responsibility for innovation, sales and profits and not just catch up with the reality of today’s customers, marketing, and business

  • New investment in technology and business models to better engage digital customers at every touchpoint in the customer experience lifecycle is required

HOW CAN YOU best FOCUS and transform?


Focusing on a mix of long-term vision and "quick win" test projects, I develop an agile roadmap based on your resources reality, top 3 objectives and stakeholders. My other clients also benefited from a straightforward approach. A strong leader and external coach is needed to position Marketing & Sales as an "ideation hub" driving customer-centric solutions for corporate success across all BUs and channels. 


Design thinking alignment workshop(s). Internal communications plan. Use cases definition. Best practices leverage

12-24 month roadmap coupled with 3-5 pilot projects execution/optimisation. SteerCo alignment

Current pilots assessment. Kick-start of new initiatives. Governance model & team organisation build. Strategy & processes upgrade
