About this event

To be a strong executive leader, it is essential you understand the roles of your peers - what they do, how they impact the organization, and how they integrate in the C-Suite. This salon is for every Athena Member. No CxO role has an "ing" in the title, with the exception of the Chief Market(ing) Officer. But in the modern world, CMOs are becoming the Chief Market Officer, making themselves one of the most vital players in all points of the business growth cycles and customer life cycles, and moving themselves up in line to the first presenter at the board meeting. Hear from one of the architects of the new role of the CMO, Latane Conant, CMO of a leading platform in the world of the CMO, 6Sense, and host of the most cutting edge communities of CMOs, Empowered CMO.


Latané Conant Chief Market Officer

As CMO of 6sense, Latané is passionate about empowering marketing leaders with effective technology, predictive insights, and thought leadership so they can confidently lead their teams, company, and industry into the future. As a “recovering software saleswoman” she is keenly focused on leveraging data to ensure marketing programs result in deals, not just leads.

Latané is an active member of the larger CMO community and leads the Empowered CMO network, an organization focused on empowering women CMOs to realize their full potential professionally and personally through leadership, inspiration, and craft, and CMO Coffee Talk, a network of 2,200+ B2B CMOs. She is a member of Pavilion and serves in Advisory Board Member roles for both Mediafly and Atrium.

Latané is creative, charismatic, and competitive. Her high energy, positive attitude, and sense of humor are contagious and it’s hard to find a customer, partner, audience, or employee who doesn’t want to work with her. Follow her insights, inspirations and updates on [LinkedIn](
