The CEO's Field Guide to Marketing

Book Cover Published in 2015 and updated in 2018, The "Scaling CEO's Field Guide to Marketing" is the brain child of Pete Sprukulis based on spending over 25 years working as a marketer and sales professional for a variety of companies including large multinationals, to small multinationals, to start-ups.  Having started with an MBA in 1985, Pete never found a situation where the theory was quite right…it always had an "*" beside everything.  Always with the “yes, but…”.  The theory never seemed to work its way into practicality.

As a result, Pete started to document what worked and that is what you find in this book.  It is a series of anecdotes that teach how to accomplish the go-to-market effort with a hands-on practical view.  This is how Pete takes his products and services to market. Today this is a valuable tool for leaders trying to develop their own companies and figuring out how to take their new innovations to market - this helps guide them on the quick efficient path to success.

Here is a clip from a recent speaking engagement.
