This week in the Marketing Studio, host Ian Truscott and Rockstar CMO Strategy Advisor Jeff Clark are inspired by an article on the Forrester blog by Jessie Johnson, Principal Analyst at Forrester – Let’s Chat About B2B Personalization – so they did.

Ian then goes backstage with David Allison, a human values expert, global researcher and best-selling author.

As the founder of the Valuegraphics Project, the first global inventory of core human values, David has made values into a measurable business metric, a new kind of insight that helps organizations succeed in today’s Values Economy. David is focused on changing how we understand ourselves, the people around us, and those we hope to engage with our work.

David speaks internationally and helps big brands connect with people by honoring their values. INC Magazine named his last book one of the ten best leadership books of the year, and he has recently published his new book The Death of Demographics: Valuegraphic Marketing for a Values-Driven World.

Finally, Ian grabs a cocktail in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar with Robert Rose, Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, who shares a client example and advice on sticking with change.
