Plannuh also has announced the release of the Next CMO Community, a group where CMOs and future marketing industry leaders can come together and network on strategies to improve marketing and operations. The community already has more than 10,000 inaugural members excited to use the forum as a way to compare notes with other marketing professionals.
The group gives its members access to weekly newsletters, exclusive content, virtual events, workshops, and more to help marketers develop their leadership qualities.
