As a professional services firm, customer experience is in part about relationships and how well a marketing consultant listens to the customer’s needs, deciphers it, and executes on providing a solution to a problem.

Competition is rife for all businesses especially due to the impact of COVID. With an increasing number of people unemployed, the marketing profession has especially been affected by lay-offs and changing working conditions.

The festive season is fast approaching and many companies are wondering what to do. It hasn't been the best year for business and for many, working from home means that there is less interaction with their service providers. The big question for many marketers is what should they do when it comes to Christmas gifting for clients? Gift boxes are all the rage but can you really send it to your clients home? Is that an invasion of privacy?

My biggest leadership fail

On January 7 this year, I opened by diary for the first time in 2020. It was a remarkable moment, one that was so full of promise. Like any entrepreneur on the rise (or at least I thought that was to be the case), I had written down the goals I had set out for the year ahead in my diary in December. 

There is this notion that marketing consultants should know it all. They are after all qualified in marketing and are employed to steer a company or brand with their knowledge and expertise. Sitting in my office in South Yarra, Melbourne, I am reminded at just how much experience is in the room, but while we are all skilled at what we do, we learn every single day something new. Our industry is evolving, growing, changing, adapting and being disrupted through technology and innovation.

Is your recruitment strategy the best one?

It's been an incredibly hard six months, I'm not going to lie.  At first, I was in denial, then it hit me hard. Then I bounced back only to be hit even harder. 

But I am not alone.

There is a new marketing norm that has thrown everything we have been taught previously out the window, and many businesses and marketers are scrambling to get a grasp of what to do next.

Next looks something like this.
