What apprenticeship experience did you benefit from most?
When I first jumped into the world of digital marketing (co-founded a digital marketing agency), I embraced a learn-by-doing approach. About five years of learning were packed into one by connecting with the industry leaders, delighting in each new discovery, and intentionally putting new learning into practice.
What emerging marketing technology excites you?
The continued evolution of search. Especially how it connects the virtual and physical world.
