We’re having another Hangout! Please join us on December 11 at 2 pm EST (11 am PST) to discuss the changing relationship between the CIO and the CMO. 

With all the talk this year about CMOs taking over IT, CMOs being more agile and, worst of all, CMOs having more of an IT budget, you might not be able to tell whether you should work with your CMO or poison their coffee. Others say that the CMO and CIO have more in common than ever before. Is the CMO secretly — or not so secretly — trying to undermine your job? Or is the best course of action turning the other cheek and working with them?

Our guests will be:

  • Rand Fishkin, founder and CEO of Moz, an SEO software company
  • Scott Brinker, co-founder and CTO at ion interactive, a maker of responsive software solutions
  • Kimberly Samuelson, director of ECM strategy at Laserfiche
  • Moderated by Emma Gardner, content strategist at The Economist Group

To participate, register for the Hangout here. The Hangout will air live at the same link on December 11th.

Put your own questions about the changing relationship between the CIO and the CMO in the comments section below and we may answer them on air.

We’re looking forward to Hanging out!
