CMO Growth Council

The CMO Growth Council was established in 2018 to assemble the most vibrant, diverse, and dynamic force of chief marketers from some of the world’s most successful brands. Its ultimate aim is to support the international community with a first-of-its-kind roadmap for driving business growth through marketing.

A benefit of ANA membership, committee meetings feature a mix of member case studies, perspective from outside experts, and benchmarking/best-practice sharing that drive thought leadership on key industry issues. Each ANA committee meets three to four times per year and can be attended in person or remotely. Depending on the committee, 10 to 30 participants may attend — big enough for diversity of opinion, yet small enough for more intimate exchanges.
