Chief Content Officer
Refreshing content from both a business and marketing point of view. Host Brian Walker asks good questions and then listens. Most "brand" or "marketing" podcasts are heavy tactic-focused and not designed for today's c-suite realities. This show clearly was designed for that and it’s premium guests demonstrate that. Also, like mix of entrepreneurs and startups as my organization can benefit from the agile mindset.
Thank you, Brian for such a great series. I'm impressed with the variety of content on the series and thankful to have been a guest on the show. The Brand Lab series does such a good job of bringing together a mix of entrepreneurs and marketers to bring diverse perspectives. Thank you, Brian!
Tremendous content, keep up the great work Team AE!!
