Must win battles for marketers

Listen on

Episode notes

 In this episode of the Unicorny podcast, Georgina Gilmore, an award-winning B2B marketer with over 30 years of experience, shares invaluable insights on the importance of human-centric marketing.

Full of fun and smart stuff, too. The show starts by looking for a blueprint for the future of marketing leadership, and we find the stuff you might expect: strategic insight, customer obsession, the courage to innovate.

As marketing leaders, our mission extends beyond the traditional boundaries of marketing. Our voice must be heard in strategy because it's our insight that helps shape the strategic direction of our businesses. And that is the core of this episode.

For Unicorny, our must win battle this year is to ensure that each and every marketing leader sits down and engages in strategic discussions with CEOs and senior executives.
