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.

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.

Why ego is at the heart of intimidation

Today I had the most awful experience. I was on an introductory call in relation to a government grant for the development of Robotic Marketers technology, and the external consultant intimidated me from start to finish.

I fell apart. I wasn't on my game. I didn't react well and I felt as though being a woman was to my detriment. I doubt he would have talked over a man in the same way he talked over me. He never let me finish a sentence, nor did he care that he was in fact representing a taxpayer body.

How Marketing Strategies Keep You Focused

Is there a lack of focus in your marketing efforts? Are you having trouble committing to a certain approach? Do you have a marketing strategy in place? It can be really difficult to execute any plans without a marketing strategy. Marketing is like a game of chess, where you’re constantly thinking of the next step. A marketing strategy will map out what goals you want to accomplish and how you want to accomplish these goals.

In truth, I have no risk management solution in place. My glass is half full, I am the eternal optimist and there is this underlying belief that 'everything will be alright'. 

So, when COVID hit, I thought it would pass. A few weeks of hysteria and then we would be back to normal. A small bump in the road.
