Speaker One: Richard Bookey
Go Bookey offers a cost-effective, elite marketing function to businesses in all sectors. All of our clients have high expectations for top-line growth. Instead of paying for an expensive full-time Head of Marketing hire, with all of the associated HR and legal complications, companies can now employ an expert on a part-time contractual basis to fulfill that role.
Sometimes brilliant products fail because the proposition is not adequately communicated. Richard will talk through a simple framework that will help brands understand and explain why they matter to people.
Speaker Two: Moti Barzilay
