CMO Rapid Fire: Behind the Scenes With CMOs From ACE, UCHealth and Syracuse University

CMO Rapid Fire Carolann DekkerWhat we didn’t share:
Best Team Outing:  We did a team building activity call The Perch/Trapeze Jump which involved climbing to a very small platform on top of a pole 40’ in the air. If you can figure out how to stand on top of the platform then you have the chance to jump for the trapeze hanging just out of reach.  It was thrilling and really helped all of us see that we were capable of so much more than we thought.
If Not a Marketer, I’d Be: Running an animal rescue organization.
Coolest Professional Achievement: I wouldn’t say that there is a single defining achievement, but I can look back at my career and know that I’ve always left a purposeful legacy the supported my personal mission and helped get me where I am today.
Something you wanted to share:  Thank you to all of my fellow members who have been so kind and generous with your time and information over the past 2 years.  I’ve grown a lot because of it.
