What turns the 'excellence' button on when building a high performance team

I won't lie... I need to have the best team possible. They each need to be high achieving, dynamic, skilled individuals who are actively trying to be the best. What they don't know, they seek to find out. What they are good at, they share. What they can improve in, they ask for mentoring and coaching.

A view that has a new perspective - imperative to 2017 competitive landscape

Sitting in the Atlanta office, with the weather outside mild compared to other years, I am looking at the view with a new perspective.

We run an international marketing firm, but so what? What does that actually mean? The last few days in the office before the end of the year are the best days in which to look back at the year you have just had and think about the year ahead. What are you going to do differently? How are you going to stand out from the crowd? What is going to keep you and your team motivated? What road blocks do you envisage coming up and how can you get around them before they become a problem? What changes are you making to your business?

Atlanta Marketing is Too Technology Driven and Less Personalized

Technology has revolutionized marketing and where it is heading in the next few months, let alone years, no-one knows.

But what I do know is that all of a sudden, we have forgotten something that is really, really important - and that is people are human and the human connection will never die.

Over the course of a year, Marketing Eye writes about 100 to 200 marketing strategies.

Are You Sick of Marketing?

In every business development meeting I have, I always ask “who’s doing your marketing now?” Often I hear that the founder is performing all if not most of the current marketing activities. Nine times out of ten they are trying to: run the business/grow the business, manage staff, manage payroll, come up with new product ideas, and more, all while doing what they can with marketing. It’s too much for a growing business.
