Bozoma Saint John may be the most confident person in marketing—and she has a track record to back it up as CMO of major entertainment agency Endeavor, with previous gigs at Uber, Apple and Pepsi. A sought after speaker for her exuberance and original thinking, she hosted a conversation about the future of sports at Adweek’s CMO Moves Summit in New York last week.

We sat down with Saint John for an intimate discussion about what’s holding back women of color in the C-suite, why the Super Bowl halftime show was a monumental moment for the Latinx community, how she stays open to innovation and what sparks her 1,000-watt confidence.

Not one to mince words, she has a direct message for white men in the workplace: “Do your job. Include us, or else…” Hear her full thoughts in the latest episode of Top of Mind, and catch more episodes here.
