 Many brands are stuck in an ad mentality and only talk about themselves as being the biggest and best, said Tom Gerace, CEO of Skyword, a content marketing platform and services company based in Boston. “You have to take off that hat and ask a different set of questions.” Gerace attended the first day of CM World and will speak later in the week. 

CM World first-timer

After trying to get to Content Marketing World for the past five years, Cheryl Foster was thrilled to finally be there. 

In the past, her boss insisted that she attend a different professional development conference, but this year Foster convinced him that she would learn more at Content Marketing World. 

 She oversees the marketing group at a public accounting company in St. Louis, Missouri. 

“I want to become a better marketer,” Foster said. “Everything is moving so quickly. I needed to attend a professional development conference like this.”
