Marketing in the era of The Breathless Business

20th, April, 2017 | Webinar

Are marketers running at a hundred miles an hour and, as a result, too focused on box-ticking and just ‘getting things done’, rather than being mindful of having a real impact on the business?

What to expect

Last year, Octopus Group discovered that senior marketers were losing sleep because of their jobs. This year, similar research into the lives of B2B marketing directors and buyers has uncovered the fact that 65% of them are more stressed than they were a year ago. Competitive changes and choice were driving delays in decision-making and putting them under increased pressure to meet marketing challenges with innovation and creativity.
