Rethinking Entrepreneurship

Have you ever wondered why so many people have brilliant ideas and never, ever do anything about it? 

We have four (4) gun marketing interns in our Sydney office, and given that they seemed to love chatting to each other and working together, we gave them a task to write a blog. We didn't expect quite this though...

Our expectations as marketing interns

Wow! How time has flown. This incredible thing happened to me on Friday and today I found out why Marketing Eye Sydney has finally found its soul and place as a high energy, high performing culture amongst an international marketing firm that breeds marketing professionals.
We have the most amazing marketing internship program, and the biggest benefit for us is the privilege to see people grow in confidence and capabilities. The fact that after an internship they should be able to go out into the world and add value to any entry-based marketing position, is something that we are extremely proud of.

It doesn't take long to realise that some marketing professionals are more competent and successful than others because they inherently have skills that other's don't. You can get by as a marketer with sound writing skills, a firm understanding of marketing with continuous training and development. Most employers would be happy with this, and I have to say that I find employees that have this background to be more than ok. However, if you truly want to be successful, and out-shine the rest of the pack, you need this skill:
Just when I thought I was getting comfortable with millennials, I have been bombarded with a new type of marketer in the office.
It happens. You have all the best intentions and for some reason your marketing strategy isn't working. Believe it or not, it has happened to some of the biggest businesses on the planet; think Kodak and Microsoft. 
Imagine my surprise when I landed back in Australia, only to be picked up by one of my team members who was so excited about showing me what he and the rest of the team had achieved while I was gone.

They had done things, without any request from management, to take the business to the next level.
