Be a change leader.

The Marketing IMPACT Council™ brings together all leaders including CEOs, COOs, CMOs, CIOs, CTOs, CFOs, and others from every vertical and channel to maximize overall marketing impact and create sustainable organizations with an integrated customer focus.

Make an Impact!

Founded to fill critical gaps, the Marketing IMPACT Council provides the opportunity, forum, and structure for executives and their teams to “connect the dots,” break down silos, and better understand, leverage, and maximize the impact of the continuously evolving and expanding suite of marketing resources in the overall strategic positioning of their for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

The Council is a new model of engagement with a focus on what we call "Big M" Marketing™ and our "Big M" VALUE Equation™. “Big M” Marketing involves everyone in the C-suite and other positions who are significant stakeholders in their organization’s marketing processes. It covers everything from the highest level of business strategy to all aspects of execution.

“Big M” and its IMPACT are NOT just relevant to the CMO.

The Council brings together all organization leaders to leverage “Big M” Marketing while facilitating trigger levers of growth, development, and networking.

Our "Big M" VALUE Equation addresses all aspects of an organization's Vision, Alignment, Leadership, Understanding, and Execution.





We proactively empower our
members in 6 key areas

  • Change Leadership
  • Education & Professional Development
  • Research & Market Intelligence
  • Market Making & Networking
  • Brand & Reputation Management
  • Advocacy & Public Policy


The world of Marketing is undergoing major evolution and disruption. Much of this change is driven by technology and the need for more relevant messaging and touch points.

A recent Forrester Research report identified 5 key areas of concern for the Marketing C-suite in 2019 and beyond. It revealed that while most industries and companies have a unique set of priorities, there are core challenges that no company can afford to get wrong.

Those challenges are:

  • Get mobile right but think about the customer's total journey
  • Connect data across channels
  • Take a human (and pragmatic) approach to AI
  • Think outside the IoT box
  • Make sure data privacy is done correctly

Miss any of these strategic imperatives and it can be costly. It could even set your organization back for years.

Who are we?

The Marketing IMPACT Council™ brings together senior leaders from many different areas of business. We are:


Channel Agnostic




Technology Neutral

We focus on unifying across silos and we address all aspects of the roles and interrelationships of people, processes, and technologies in not only shaping but also impacting the overall marketing process from strategy to execution.
