“The future of your company could very well be on these cards.”

Paul Armstrong, Forbes

“I have used Matt’s #ciopriorities cards to great success. If you are a #CMO then these are definitely worth a look to sense check where you and your organisation are/can go.”

Chris King, Deputy CIO, National Institute for Health Research

Understanding what makes a  leader tick is a crucial factor in understanding how to sell to them, how to influence them and how to work effectively with them. Understanding their priorities, which are often things tangential to their core responsibilities, is hard – especially when the breadth of what the CxO roles can now encompass is so wide.

CxO Priorities are a simple set of tools to help you explore the challenges that a CIO or CMO may face. They can be used in helping sales and marketing teams to better position their messaging and strategy. They can be used by C-suite teams to understand the relative priorities in their organisation. They can be used by technology or marketing teams to explore the breadth of what they should and could be doing.

Developed from nearly three decades of observing and participating in technology and marketing management across a spectrum of business sectors, CxO Priorities will be accompanied by a series of coaching and workshop services, and additional supporting tools focused on particular user groups. The CMO Priorities cards have been developed in conjunction with Matt Desmier from Wise Old Uncle.
