Connecting with the host:
  • 02:36 – “Marketing communications when performed at its best has to have a corollary ROI. It’s never going to be perfect anyone who says you can measure marketing perfectly is lying it’s not true, but you can get a very good sense of what works and what doesn’t work if you understand sophisticated digital marketing.”
  • 15:49 – “Winning awards happens and should and thankfully we’ve won well more than our share of awards for our work, but the focus has to be on driving business results.”
