This week Ian Truscott and regular guest, rockstar strategy advisor Jeff Clark, former Research Director at SiriusDecisions/Forrester, discuss the difficult skill of knowing when to say no as a marketer.

Ian’s guest is Rebecca Biestman, the Chief Marketing Officer at Reputation. Rebecca has had a fabulous marketing career, holding B2B marketing leadership positions at Dialpad and RMS, prior to Reputation. Before moving to B2B tech, Rebecca specialized in B2C marketing for CPG and retail, working for Earth Essentials and Gap. This is her third time on the show, we explored Rebecca’s impressive career in Episode 93, discussed successful CSR programs in Episode 99 and this week we chat about the role of marketing and brand when defining the corporate strategy.

Finally, we retire to the Rockstar CMO virtual bar, where Robert Rose discusses an article from the Drum and discusses if we can do both growth marketing and do this with a purpose.
