🤓 And our quote of the day:

“Being a marketing leader today means you have to be a data champion for your team. That means prioritizing a visualization-first approach to collecting data and encouraging storytelling. Invest in your team’s critical thinking training, and, more importantly, create a safe space for your team to make decisions with limited information. This can help you create a data-driven approach to your marketing in an ever-so-uncertain world.” Mo Dezyanian, President of Toronto media consulting group Empathy Inc.
