What Media Leaders Are Saying

“Based on the experiences that other chief revenue officers are having in their respective fields, the strategies that have been introduced this week have been exceptional.”
Kim Kelleher, Chief Brand Officer (Former CRO), Condé Nast – GQ, GQ Style, WIRED Media Group, Pitchfork & Golf Digest

“I take what I have learned at the Executive Forum and assemble a leadership committee when I get back with my marketing operations and sales. We will then implement some of the solutions shared by other attendees into our own strategy for success.”
Sean Giancola, CEO and Publisher – New York Post

“The Forum gives me a great opportunity to learn, ask questions and network with the other participants in Media and
other industries.”
Lana Lee, Global Head of Operations, Uber for Business

“The Executive Forum has a sense of comradery because of the level of the individuals in attendance. Everyone is dealing with a similar set of challenges and everyone’s opinion is welcomed. It’s a great place to learn as well.”
Matt Kessler, VP, Enterprise Sales – Glassdoor

“The Forum was different in all the right ways—it’s the only event focused on the role of the revenue leader. I learned from best-in-class execs across sectors, was challenged in my current thinking, and walked away with actionable learnings and ideas which I have already applied in my day to day business.”
Rose Steinberg, VP, Customer Success, Vox Media
