Lots of good learnings!

As someone who has worked in this profession for 7 years, it’s so cool to hear from other professionals about their journey, do’s and don’ts, and how they managed to create success for themselves. HIGHLY recommend this for agency and in-house pros who are tired of reading the standard best practice blogs or lists of tactics without a deeper explanation.

Practical and inspiring

Finally a podcast that captures pivotal transition moments in the careers of rising creative leaders vs. those already at the top. Stories are relatable, timely, and inspiring all at once, leaving me feeling empowered to forge my own path and secure in the knowledge that the way up looks different today than it did a decade ago - and how that’s a good thing!

Keeps me ahead of the next gen of leaders

Love hearing the perspectives of the next gen leaders. Amazing to contrast the opinions and lessons here with what’s happening today to compare the mindsets. And Mat and Josh are just the best!
