We need, now more than ever, to focus our energies as an industry to have conversations that matter, and we has marketers can have a positive impact on both our customers and communities. As a marketer myself, educated on the job vs. in the classroom, I am so inspired by the AEF focus on the next generation of marketing talent. To move our industry forward we must have the most diverse voices deciding to join us and helping us create new stories and career journeys.
Failure is not an option – it is a necessity. Embrace the times when things don’t work out – your personal growth rests in what you learn and how you bounce back.
My Archaeology 101 professor in my first year at the University of Michigan. She inspired me to be curious, ask questions, search for answers, and continue to expand my perspective as we uncover and gain insights from data and the world around us.
I love developing and inspiring my team to be creative, test and learn, and stretch themselves to do things that they didn’t think possible to perform at the top of their game. The best investment is in their growth and development.
