This week Jeff Clark starts a month-long break from the show, and so our “not a rockstar” host Ian Truscott, catches up with regular guest, Chief Problem Solver and Lead Analyst, from the Content Advisory Cathy McKnight, for her 10th appearance on the show. 

Ian and Cathy chat about the importance of content operations in the face of all the immediate demands on marketing, some takeaways from a recent webinar she hosted with Liana Cardenes Cave, Hilton’s Senior Director, Content Orchestration and what she’s learned from interviewing influential and successful women on her podcast The Uncharted Journey.

Ian then retires to the Rockstar CMO virtual bar to join Cathy’s colleague Robert Rose, Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, who, over a cocktail he’s recommending for breakfast, shares some interesting, informal research he’s done with his clients and community on the different use cases marketers are using AI for. And, it seems we are creating work with the robots, not reducing it.
