This week we’ll be speaking to the chief execs, marketing directors and agencies responsible for driving economic growth for some of the world’s biggest brands and emerging startups. By examining marketing plans, reflecting on their challenges and looking at strategies for the year ahead, The Drum will uncover the marketing secrets of fast-growth brands.
