Marketing in MOtion: Leveraging Marketing Operations for Results
Join us for a free live webinar on November 17
It's tougher than ever to be a marketer. Marketing teams are under extreme scrutiny to show their contribution to the organization's bottom line. The average CMO stays in place less than two years. Headcount and program budgets are constantly at risk. Expectations to deliver more with less persist nonetheless.
Fortunately, the emerging field of Marketing Operations (MO) holds great promise in addressing these significant challenges. On Friday, November 17 at 9 a.m. Pacific time,
you'll have a rare opportunity to dive deeper into the evolving function of Marketing Operations during a free live webinar - the first in a series of webinars on Marketing Operations presented by Marketing Operations Partners' CEO Gary M. Katz and other leaders in the field. During this 40-minute webinar you'll learn:

enterprises' strategic agenda
- enables marketing to demonstrate its ROI
* Key characteristics and motivators that indicate an organization's readiness to formalize its Marketing Operations function
The webinar will conclude with a 10-minute Q&A session.
