    "Not in Any Job Description: The Unwritten Role of Marketing" - Joe Cullinan, Advisor, Educator, Author


    How can marketers support the efforts of founders and CEOs? Entrepreneurial leaders are very bright and demanding. They are often highly technical and do not always understand or respect the marketing function. All too often many over simplify marketing as "If we build it, they will come". What they need at this critical point is a fearless staff to help support them to transform their vision into reality. And marketing’s job is to translate this vision into appropriate messages for both internal and external stakeholders. This presentation will provide practical advice on how to support these visionary leaders in achieving this.
