Insights for Marketers Making Podcasts and Video Shows

Marketing Showrunners covers the movement of marketers making shows to build brand affinity.

I’ve spent a decade working with global brands to craft on-target content and streamline complex ideas into clear (and even…exciting?!) language.

I’m thrilled to be a part of this community of eager next-generation marketers and marketing showrunners.
