The Secret to Marketing Leadership

How To Stop Repeating Past Mistakes, Learn New Strategic Thinking
and Quit Second Guessing Yourself

From the Desk of Drew Dinkelacker
Founder of

Dear Friend,

Are you leading  the marketing effort in your organization?

Will you be held accountable for marketing's success or failure? 

Then what I have to share may change how you do business.

I recently discovered a solution to many marketing struggles, obstacles, and—let’s admit it—failures.

My discovery will remove an enormous burden from your shoulders, save you a lot of money (and perhaps your business or job), and remind you why you came to love marketing in the first place.

I’m going to show you how to...

  • Be more successful.
  • Be more confident in your own decision-making.
  • Avoid chasing the latest marketing “shiny object.”
  • Stop wasting money on ineffective campaigns.

Your Problem and Pain

As both a business leader and marketing leader, you can find yourself...

  • Isolated in your role.
  • Exhausted by the constant evolution of the advertising landscape (don’t even get me started on the social media world).
  • Worn down by the never-ending demands of plan execution, creative development, KPIs, and brand promotion.
  • Struggling to hold yourself accountable for your marketing decisions when you’re not really sure of yourself to begin with.

Whatever happened to the “marketing is the creative, fun side of business” thing?

You have nowhere to turn. No one to trust. No peers with your experience, or understanding of your particular set of challenges.

You have no safe place to go test ideas and strategies.

Until Now...

After years of offering my CMO-for-hire services I have found what we marketing leaders REALLY need to stay successful, happy, healthy, and sane in this new world.

It’s NOT more knowledge, information, tactics, campaigns, funnels, offers, automation, doo-dads, or the myriad of other shiny marketing objects and trends.


Insight is the ability to sort through clutter, chaos, misinformation, and disinformation.

Insight is the distillation of experience into the wisdom of simplification.

Insight is the clarity to rely upon the fundamentals of marketing that have worked ever since people have been selling things, and to see how these principles still apply.

I Have Created an Insight Laboratory Just for You

The Marketing Accelerator Round Table is an exclusively marketing-focused small group of leaders who gather to form a powerful brain trust for each other’s benefit.

Members gather to build confidence in their decisions, compare ideas, encourage and challenge each other’s plans.

Members gain insight about upcoming campaigns, brainstorm solutions to marketing obstacles, and share successes and failures for the benefit of all.

I started facilitating my first Marketing Accelerator Round Table in January 2015, and the results have been powerful beyond anything I imagined—greater than the sum of the parts.

Yes, I bring 18 successful years of CMO-for-hire experience to the table. Yes, I’m a voting panelist on USA Today’s Ad Meter rating of Super Bowl commercials. Yes, I’ve traveled the world producing compelling messages and business strategies...

And you get access to all my skills and experience...

But that’s NOT why the MAGIC happens...

The Magic of Partnership

The Marketing Accelerator Round Table is NOT a social club or a networking event. Strong relationships and camaraderie naturally form, but that is not our primary purpose.

And creating space to sell services to members is not why we gather either. Members may certainly end up contracting with each other, but it also is not the purpose of our gathering and should not be the intent of joining.

We gather for a very specific purpose: to make better strategic marketing decisions and to learn from each other.

That’s the MAGIC.

We accomplish together what none of us can do separately.

Join the Marketing Accelerator Round Table

If you want to...

  • Get feedback before rolling out campaigns to customers (or even your own leadership team).
  • Harness the power and experience of this unique brain trust to resolve the obstacles hindering your progress. Whatever you are struggling with someone else has already overcome.
  • Celebrate your successes by sharing your goals and financials.
  • Learn from postmortem analysis of failures. These are some the most informative discussions because you learn what NOT to do.
  • Benefit from my 17 years of success as a CMO-for-hire.
  • Discover how the Marketing Flywheel will clarify and simplify every marketing decision you make.

The Marketing Accelerator Round Table will help you...

  • Know the limitations of your own viewpoint in order to make wiser decisions by vetting multiple viewpoints from other professionals.
  • Eliminate overwhelm by learning to simplify.
  • Never make another decision based on someone else’s hopeful opinion. Base it on a colleague’s actual experience, instead.
  • Find marketing wisdom, learning from other’s mistakes rather than your own.
  • Use a brain trust to exponentially expand your business experience resource.
  • Bolster your confidence in decision-making. Never make another big decision in isolation.
  • Hear a fresh perspective not contaminated by your own thought patterns or organizational bias or habit.
  • Gain confidence in your ability to lead.
  • Ask tough questions to a group of supportive peers, rather than a boss or team member.
