Qmate since 2006-ish
How do you stay sharp?
Keeping up with the advances in modern marketing could be a full-time job, but it keeps me sharp. I love doing it, particularly when I get to meet new people and clients to discuss their ideas and initiatives. In my spare time, I enjoy jamming with my mates on the drums. In fact, I’ve been the drummer for the Quarry house band since its inception.
What is your perfect work day/work week?
Any day that I can help a client succeed in adopting and mastering new marketing technologies and techniques to deliver better buyer experiences is a great one. Helping clients succeed in this way has been my passion since I started as a marketer in my native Australia and it continues to this day.
What quality do you most value in your teammates?
Marketing is a team sport. And, as in most team sports, a good teammate is one who recognizes, respects and supports the unique knowledge and talents that each teammate brings to the field. At the same time, in today’s marketing world, we all need to be this new kind of generalist, someone who blends the analytical abilities of a scientist with the creativity of an artist. That’s more than one quality, I know, but it’s this mixture of qualities that I most value in my teammates.
