What do five of today’s leading B2B marketers love about marketing and this year’s big MarketingProfs B2B Forum 2023 event taking place October 4 – 6 in Boston and online?
Our founder Lee Odden took the opportunity to ask these questions and many others to five exceptional B2B marketers who will be speaking during #MPB2B next week, which we’ve gathered together here in our “Feeling B2B” video interview series.
Join Lee as he explores it all with guests Joe Pulizzi, founder of Content Marketing Institute and The Tilt, Pam Didner, vice president at Relentless Pursuit, Ahava Leibtag, president at Aha Media Group, Wil Reynolds, vice president of innovation at Seer Interactive, and the one and only Ann Handley, chief content officer at MarketingProfs.
