In this special episode, chief learning officer at Quarry Integrated Communications and host of AQ's Blog & Grill, Alan Quarry, puts himself in the hot seat as guest host Angela Pause asks him questions on branding, advertising and company culture. Alan believes that there is no future for marketing, and instead companies should focus on branding and “customering”.
Alan provides advice for startups, and also suggests that all companies must think like a startup by being agile and willing to fail. With a MadMen spirit, Alan touches on the history of advertising and the glory years of creativity. Angela gets Alan to share what makes his company, Quarry Integrated Communications, so successful.
