This week Jeff Clark, our resident strategy advisor and former Forrester Research Director is back from his travels and joins our host Ian Truscott in the marketing studio. They discuss a topic Ian touched on a couple of episodes ago, Forrester’s concept of Frontline Marketing. Is it a one hit wonder?

Although Ian got one co-host back, he lost another as, at the last minute, his usual companion in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar, Robert Rose, Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, couldn’t make it. So, he’s alone in the bar with some gin, and he shares his approach to storytelling.
