This  is the fourth episode of my brand new podcast CMO Stories: conversations with Chief Marketing Officers, Marketing Directors, Marketing Managers from all over the world about their challenges, tools and tactics.

My guest for this episode is Rachel James, Chief Marketing Officer at Applaud. This episode was recorded through a Zoom-call on December 1, 2021.

Together with podcast I am building a CMO Community. If you want to know more, follow me on Twitter or Instagram and send me a DM with the keyword "CMO100".

The conversation with Rachel James was very informative. We also discuss the situation that was there during the Lock down. We also gave each other's opinion and experience about the differences in meetings online and virtual.

NOTABLE QUOTES

·        When you're at work, you should have the same technology experiences that you have when you're at home.

·        But I think I learned as much just from the conversations that I had with people, like over lunch over drinks at dinner as much from those people as I did from the amazing speakers that they had on stage as well.

·        It's great to see that evolution, and that where we are now that everyone's kind of companies are being forced to be more authentic, individuals are being more authentic.
