The 5 Things from Jeff’s Debut and a Rose Colored Strategy over a Cocktail Episode Rockstar CMO FM

This week, our host, Ian Truscott, revisits the first time Jeff Clark, our resident strategy advisor and former Forrester Research Director, appeared on the show in episode 40, back in December 2020. They run through the five points Jeff made in that discussion, and asks him if things have changed in the intervening years.  Plus, Ian asks if Jeff still wants to chuck constant re-branding into the Swimming Pool, our portal to hell for all the snake oil, bullshit and overhyped trends that plague this craft we love.     Then Ian joins Robert Rose, Fractional Marketing Leader and Chief Troublemaker at The Content Advisory, in the Rockstar CMO virtual bar.

I love everything about this show!
Where do I begin? I love Rockstar CMO. It’s a regular Saturday listen for me. Ian and Jeff have insightful back and forth conversations about the issues of the day, which in an of itself is a great pod. But then there’s a guest … sometimes two … with smarts to share. Then Robert Rose comes in and talks content over a cocktail? It’s like a variety show for marketers. Super smart. Great energy. Brilliant all the way around.
