Course Structure
This course is designed to provide advice and guidance from my own learning and help you apply them in a practical sense. As an experienced CMO you may find value and gaps in your knowledge but predominantly aimed at those with less experience scaling B2B SaaS organisations.

There are eight core components of the course that will help guide your strategy through to execution.
These eight areas are what I would call the core capabilities of any sales and marketing engine.

In addition, the core responsibilities of the SaaS VP Marketing, Chief Marketing Officer; or the capabilities you need to build in each segment.

The areas we will focus on include:
Defining/owning the business proposition and positioning
Demand gen channels & campaigns
Collateral, content and copy
Go-to-Market reputation, community & advocacy
Shaping whole company commercial alignment
Owning MarTech effectiveness and data insights 
Product and Customer Marketing
Building a world-class marketing team
Each module will provide you with a series of sessions, guiding you through the practical application of marketing processes. We’ll provide key actions, homework and activities you can implement within your team.

FAQs
What is The Purpose of The Course?
Every marketing or revenue leader faces a single-core challenge.

How do you build a structure around sales and marketing that ensures growth?
How do you scale at speed and get results quicker?

If like me, you’re a revenue leader in a growth-stage company, you’ll have lots of responsibilities. The most important area for you to focus on is proving your business can scale.

Without the right processes, strategies and tactics, you’ll never get there.

This course is designed for series A to series C companies, looking to put the right marketing processes in place to enable growth. It's all about how to build the marketing engine for B2B SaaS companies.

You'll uncover how you can figure out the prioritisation of activities for impact, how you can embed the right processes to grow and equip yourself and your team with the right tools.
What is The Background Story?
The name of this course is called "Pathway to CMO - The Tactical Guide to SaaS Marketing Success". It will teach you the 8 capabilities needed to build marketing at your scale-up and the skills needed to excel as a marketing leader.

Before we go any further, please let me make it very clear that my results are not always typical. A lot can influence growth including product-market fit, stage of business, team org size and so on...

Chances are we have not met... so I am not making any claims or implications that you will duplicate my results or achieve any results whatsoever. I’m going to show you what worked well for me, and it’s my hope that you will be able to utilise some of the information that I share with you to get the results that you are personally after.

So if you’re looking for one of those ‘blueprints to $100M if you follow this exact process in 3 weeks’ deals, I’m sorry to say this isn’t it.

BUT — if you’re a “real person” who’s got some skill, the ability to help others, and the willingness to work for what you want, this is for you. In 2017, I moved on from a role scaling B2B pipeline to $100M+ in 4 years. I had a small team and a moderate budget to work within. Since then, I have worked as a CMO across VC portfolios and in rapidly scaling SaaS businesses. I've successfully managed almost every aspect of sales and marketing hands-on. I was the CMO at two London scaleups in the Blenheim Chalcot portfolio, Hive Learning (including new business sales) and Modulr, an award-winning payments platform and second-fastest-growing tech company in the UK, according to Dun & Bradstreet in 2020. Previously, I ran Appirio’s (sold for $500m) marketing, alliances and GTM in Europe, where we scaled the pipeline from $30k to $133M in 4 years, which generated 25%+ sourced EMEA revenue (industry-leading and highly unusual for a services business). I've run my own startup and worked in sales for many years.

Right now, and why the course exists, is that I'm applying all that knowledge to coaching, advising and consulting. My specialities include market strategy, rapidly scaling B2B SaaS companies, sales and marketing alignment, commercial team Due Diligence, product and competitive positioning, demand generation, org design, brand and messaging development, integrated marketing, project and people management, cross-functional and international projects. I have built teams from scratch to larger organisations, learning A LOT in that journey. Learnings that I’m able to share in this course.

I’ll teach you what the core capabilities are that you need to develop a revenue engine, how to become a great marketing leader and I'll give you a plan for building a marketing structure/growth plan that you can use too.
How Do You Implement Course Ideas?
The Tactical Guide to SaaS Marketing t is a resource repository full of advice. Please use this as an ongoing resource to dive into, whenever you need support.

But, if you’d like the full benefit of the process, I’d suggest you start from the beginning. The course is designed to work either way.

I hope you enjoy it!
