Fuel Growth with 4 Enabling Marketing Capabilities

Description:  Time to push pass surviving to thriving.  Growth takes a different energy.  This conversation focuses on why customer-centricity is the key to growth for every organization.  This discussion takes you through four pivotal capabilities every company needs to grow. These capabilities fall within the domain of Marketing. Whether you have Marketing as a stand-alone function or not, to fuel growth all four of these must be firing on all cylinders.  These four capabilities entail:

  • Taking a Customer-Centric Approach
  • Building an Outcome-Based Growth Plan from Actionable Data-Derived Insights
  • Operational Excellence: All organizations run on processes.
  • Performance Management for Fast Maneuvering


​For many business leaders, growth is the number one mandate. But growth doesn’t just occur – it takes intent and deliberate action. Join this program if you are looking for a practical customer-centric framework that provides a systematic process for navigating and accelerating a sustainable path to organic growth.

  • Make customer-centric more than a buzzword
  • Use upstream Marketing to drive growth
  • Apply a framework to accelerate traction in the market


Best-in-Class marketers understand that building a culture of accountability drives and demonstrates how your organization is delivering real business value. These leading marketers continually receive praise and additional investment dollars as their C-Suite peers recognize their value.

The Gartner 2020 concurs and reported that “the CMO needs a function that can drive operational excellence in planning and execution across the span of the organization.”

Growth doesn’t just occur–growth takes the right culture, processes and discipline.


Ready. Set. Grow!Former football player and coach, Lou Holtz, once said: “In this world you’re either growing or you’re dying, so get in motion and grow.” Most every company leader is in pursuit of growth. Growing companies are attractive. They’re attractive to partners, employees, and of course customers. If your company is not growing, then you and your shareholders are losing equity, profit, and employees. Growth doesn’t just occur–growth takes the right culture, processes and discipline. Most importantly growth takes intent and deliberate focused action. Growth is a result of solving customer problems at the right time with the right solution with a story that resonates with the market.In Fast-Track Your Business
