What is the Women's SIG about?
Leveraging the impressive network of The FENG to help women occupy 50% of senior leadership positions.

Where and when will the meetings take place?
Our teleconference, held every three weeks on a Tuesday at 10 a.m. US ET, will serve as the serendipitous meeting by the coffee machine at which people who work within the same organization, but not together, meet, and as the golf game at which long-time business partners meet. This call is where we will discuss what we can do to have more women in senior leadership roles now, concretely.

Please check the Women’s SIG page ( for updates, answer the survey, participate to our teleconferences, email us, and volunteer to lead an initiative that you believe will help more women obtain senior leadership positions. We welcome all new initiatives as long as they do not compete with the already excellent job that many other women groups are doing.

To learn more about, to make suggestions about, or to volunteer for the following initiatives, please write to:

Topic: Finance Execs, Who Says Your Marketing Can’t Be Better, Faster, and Cheaper?

Companies that market more grow much faster, yet very few B2B companies are taking advantage of modern marketing.

Given the increasingly strategic role of financial executives, whether you’re currently at a company or looking for a new position, knowing how the company can gain a competitive advantage through marketing can provide a competitive advantage for you and your company.

Marketing strategist and author Louis Gudema will share with us the results of his study of 351 companies which shows how few non-software companies are marketing.

An additional challenge in most companies is that the CFO and other financial heads typically think that marketers do a poor job of reporting on ROI.

Louis will then describe his Bullseye Marketing approach, the subject of his acclaimed 2018 book, and how companies can use it to significantly improve their business results while keeping down their risk and marketing costs.

So come join us for an engaging discussion on what you need know to be a fully informed leader and help grow your organization.

7:30 AM – Coffee/Juice & Light Networking
8:00 AM – 30 Second Member Introductions
8:15 AM – Presentation & Interactive Discussion
9:00 AM – Wind-down, and Final Networking Discussions
9:30 AM – Adjourn

Speaker bio:

Louis Gudema helps companies from startups and small businesses to the Global 2000 increase their revenue by focusing on the fastest, least expensive and most cost-effective programs to get more leads and sales. He is the founder and president of marketing consultancy, revenue & associates and previously founded and grew a marketing agency into one of the top three or four in its national market before a successful exit. He also mentors startups at MIT.

Louis speaks frequently on marketing and business at regional and national events and has written for such leading business sites as The Harvard Business Review, TechTarget, IDG Connect Marketer, and many others.

Dress: Business Casual 

Please bring:
- Name Badge
- Personal Contact cards
