The Distraction of Technology, Jelly Beans and Marketing to Marketers Episode

Share the goodness!

This week, Jeff Clark, our resident strategy advisor and former Forrester Research Director turns the table on our host Ian Truscott to interview him about an upcoming chapter he’s writing for a collective book called “Collecting Jelly Beans; timeless wisdom to grow your organization”. 

The topic for Ian’s contribution to the book is a guide on how marketing leaders maintain strategy despite technology changes and both Ian and Jeff share their take from the potential distractions, to developing a strategy and what to focus on.

Ian then joins Robert Rose, Fractional Marketing Leader and Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar for a discussion on some new research from the Content Marketing Institute on marketing to marketers over his Dad’s favorite cocktail.
