Anyone ever been blocked in their growth because of a marketing-based title?

For context, external launches are better received when promoted by RD&A or business leaders.


At 8am this morning Pacific time, I admitted our 100th member. Thank you all for being early adopters in what I hope will be a vibrant and useful community for senior marketing leaders!

Please help us get to the next milestone by posting a link to the bowl in other relevant bowls you are members of (I'll only admit qualified joiners). The bigger we are, the greater our collective knowledge base, and the more likely it is that someone will have an answer or perspective you need when you need it.

Also, I think once we hit 50 members, we may start to grow a littl… more


We're getting a new member or two each day. Maybe that would increase if current members shared the group and/or invited colleagues to join?


So we're getting a half-dozen manager-level requests daily, but eligible senior marketing leaders are coming in slower. I am approving on average one director-level (or higher) marketer per day.
