You know how every brand in the world is telling you that they’re there for you right now?
That they care. That they are by your side?
As well-intentioned as these messages are… aren’t they all starting to look the same? If I get one more ‘A message from our CEO’ message of reassurance, I think I’ll have to start tearing out what little hair of mine remains.
But here is the thing. We do care, and we are there for you. Everything we’ve ever done has been about creating a helpful, lovely community of amazing marketing people. I hope you feel that as much as we mean it.
But how do we make that message cut through when everyone is saying the same stuff?
Well, I guess one way to do it is to present things differently. Do something fun and a bit silly.
Like, for example, asking Sean Paul (chart-topping rapper who has worked with the likes of Beyonce, The Saturdays, Clean Bandit, Sia and many more of the world’s most famous acts – ask your nearest teenager) to send your community a message, just to say hey.
Yes. I think that will do it…
No, I don’t think he knows or cares, what The Marketing Meetup is, but isn’t he a nice man?
🙂 Stay safe.
Love, all of us.

How have events changed in reaction to COVID, and how to nail them now – Emma Honeybone, Head of Relationship Marketing, Engine Group
In the past couple of months we’ve seen a monumental shift in the events industry. The gut feeling would be that this changes everything. However, much has in fact stayed the same when it comes to putting on a great event. This session discusses both, before answering the community’s questions.
Things are hard right now. Chances are, they will get even tougher.
And while we can’t click our fingers and make things better, we wanted to do what we could to help. So, working with our friends and partners at Brand Recruitment and Pitch Consultants, we’re offering the community 30 minute CV sessions.
The coronavirus crisis will test us all as marketers. Mark Ritson doesn’t pretend to have the answers, but he has earned the right to have an opinion worth listening to after a storied career that has left him as one of the world’s best known marketers.
