In the first segment of the program we discuss the scenario and exit outcome the leadership team was striving to achieve.  Andrea explains how she as the marketing leader at BravoSolution assessed the marketing function and put her team in a position to support the desired outcome.


What’s interesting in the dialogue is to hear how the marketing strategy changed as the company transitioned from year 1, to year 2, and then onto year 3. 


In the second segment of the show, Andrea explains the importance of budget planning for each year.  The budget needs to match the strategy as it evolves year to year.  In addition, we discuss how the key metrics evolved as we the years progressed, and the maturity of the marketing team grew.
