“I attended a Fortune Growth summit 4 years ago and heard David speak and he fundamentally changed the way I saw the future of marketing. For me, David finally answered the question I had been struggling with since the internet and social media became relevant in marketing. Since then, we have implemented many of David’s strategies with great success. Flash forward 4 years and we have the honor of David presenting to our entire sales and management team. Since I was already a David Meerman Scott fan, I was hopeful that our salesforce would see what I had seen four years ago and achieve that bridge between sales and marketing that is so critical. Imagine my pleasant surprise when the presentation not only blew our team away, but it was so fresh and up to date with great new pearls of wisdom that I received as much value as the team did.”
