Established in 1959 by a small group of London based marketers who wanted to improve the standard and reputation of marketing, the Society has evolved over the past 60 years into a global community with over 3000 members from hubs in Scotland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, India and New York.
Our purpose is to `empower braver leaders’ and being part of our influential membership means having conversations that matter and building meaningful connections with each other. Everything we do is through a brave lens - pushing boundaries, tacking taboos, providing comfortable spaces to have uncomfortable but important conversations. It gives us a point of differentiation and allows us to talk about topics such as mental health, gender bias and race discrimination as well as the day to day challenges facing CMOs and our industry today.
We speak up, we inspire one another, we listen, we share best practice, ideas and challenges, we work together to make our industry better for business and better for the world around us.
