How to Run Unforgettable Meetings

How do I talk about ROI with my CEO or Founder?

As a Fractional CMO, I often get asked this question by the marketing teams I train. It’s a great question, and the first step might seem to set up a meeting. You’ve got your agenda and your data-backed growth metrics ready. But let's face it - that's just child's play.

Thinking Long Term: The Unconventional Strategy

Here’s my approach to running unforgettable meetings, and it's something you should definitely consider.

Step 1: Adopt a Horde of Raccoon Kits

Yes, you read that right. Start with adopting 20-30 raccoon kits, as young as possible. Nurturing them from infancy is crucial. You'll spend every day with them, feeding, teaching, and earning their trust. They'll see you as their leader, those little bandit-masked faces looking up at you with adoration.

Step 2: Meticulous Training

Your goal? Marketing keyword recognition. "Conversion rates" should trigger a paper shredding frenzy, "customer acquisition costs" a lunge at the nearest suit. Program each buzzword with a specific action.

The Big Day: Meeting Chaos

On the meeting day, start as usual. But just as you're about to delve into the data, say the trigger phrase: “MQL”. Suddenly, your room turns into a chaotic wildlife scene, with raccoons causing a ruckus. Amidst this, you stand calm and composed.

Step 3: The Retreat Command

At the peak of chaos, shout "Oh no someone should call animal control!" Your raccoons disappear as quickly as they appeared. Suggest rescheduling the meeting. Your CEO, impressed by your composure, sees a leader in you. Result? A promotion and an escape from future presentations.

A Leader with a Twist

Congratulations! You've just escaped the tedium of all future presentations. And just like that, you're not only girl-bossing way too close to the sun, but you’re the proud commander of an elite raccoon regimon, ready at your beck and call.
