Marketers in hyperdrive: The dawn of a new age

Recent research from Octopus Group found that B2B marketing directors were losing sleep over their jobs. Competitive changes and choice were driving delays in decision-making and putting them under increased pressure to meet marketing challenges with innovation and creativity. All of this and a whole marketing plan to deliver – on time and on budget.

Are marketers running at a hundred miles an hour and, as a result, too focused on box-ticking and just ‘getting things done’, rather than being mindful of having a real impact on the business? Is this the dawn of the Breathless Marketer?

This webinar covers:

  • The typical traits of a ‘breathless business’
  • How to spot the signs of being a breathless marketer
  • Creating an action plan for change based on your situation & organisation
  • The Smart, Strong and Slick levers – how they work and when to pull them!
  • How data and insight specialist, Callcredit, is helping marketers use data to drive performance in a world in hyperdrive

Hosted by The Drum, the webinar will feature Billy Hamilton-Stent, Client Strategy Director and Co-Founder of Octopus Group.
