Most CEOs Are Sceptical About Marketing
73% of CEOs agree “Marketers lack business credibility and the ability to generate sufficient growth”*
As the CEO, every decision you make is about maximising profits, improving operations and growing the business. But unlike almost every other area of the business, marketing tends to seem inconsistent, difficult to manage and costly.
So why does this problem persist?
The real problem lies in the fact that Marketing is fluid and changes all the time.
This means there are no defined rules or specific principles that CEO’s can follow. Most of time, CEO’s are left to trying multiple strategies at once to see what works. It wastes time and money.

What If It Didn’t
Have To Be This Way?
What if marketing could be defined, well understood, easy to manage and results driven?
More than that, what if you could align all your Executives and departments to work harmoniously as one unit? And what if there were clear metrics that made it easy for you and your marketing team to make decisions, improve and manage the investment in marketing?
There’s another way

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is this any different from other strategic planning or marketing tools?
In order for to reach a market leadership position, your marketing needs to closely align to your business strategy. After 27 years of planning, Chris found that most strategic plans rarely get implemented, and hardly ever align with the rest of the company.
The process does just that. Every part of the strategy becomes a tool for your team to make the right decisions, take the right action and realise the goals.
