The Drum Network’s latest London meet-up was an audience with VaynerMedia’s inimitable head honcho, Gary Vaynerchuk.

Chief exec of creative and media agency VaynerMedia and focal point of adland’s most impressive executive content machine, Gary Vaynerchuk is also one of the industry’s most vocal internal critics. At a recent closed-door event for members of The Drum Network, he didn’t hold back.

Here, we bring you some choice Vaynerisms from his hour-long interview with The Drum’s editor-in-chief, Gordon Young.

In the interview, Vaynerchuk shares his adland journey from community management on his brother’s laptop to one of the biggest independent agencies in the world. He also shares juicy takes on what he sees as marketers’ over-inflated pricing for ideas; how became a top-of-funnel channel, and why the industry needs more big indies.
