The Atlanta Go-to-Market Transformation Summit was a Huge Success… Now Off to Boston!

Our inaugural Go-to-Market Transformation Summit is officially in the books! We kicked off this series in ANNUITAS’s hometown of Atlanta at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead. The packed house was a great mix of go-to-market experts, growth leaders and executives — all with the same goal in mind: discovering new ways to accelerate go-to-market transformation for their organizations and digging into why it is that the best-laid go-to-market strategies ‘tend to fall apart in execution.’

ANNUITAS CEO Adam Needles set the tone by outlining what we are calling a new “Go-to-Market Operating System” that better aligns demand experience (or “DX”) across the entirety of the pre-and-post sale customer journey. The new business reality is that growth leaders must orchestrate engagement across the full journey — or risk the consequences. To succeed with this, you need a scalable approach to operationalizing every element of go-to-market — people, process, content, technology and data — around customer lifecycle. Needles also highlighted the critical role that Conversation Track Architecture plays — creating a scalable basis for segmentation and personalization as we improve orchestration.

We heard some great case studies from Michael Donohue (currently CMO at Lakeside Software) about building a perpetual Growth Engine, and from Asmita Singh, CMO at BARBRI Global, about constructing a multi-channel, full journey engagement model. The day ended with a lively panel discussion, wherein we both launched the ANNUITAS Chief Growth Officer’s Handbook and debated this role. Is it an individual role? Is it a committee? So many great ideas shared in the panel by Ellen Kindley, Chief Transformation Officer at Keyfactor; Elizabeth Halkos, COO at Vivlio Health; Lauren Goldstein, GM at Winning by Design and ANNUITAS CEO Adam Needles.
