L2 Thought Leadership Series - Key Takeaways

L2’s Bagels & Brainstorming group (B&B) met 3-15-19 for a lively discussion around trends and best practices for senior executives in today’s marketing environment. 

 

Top 3 takeaways included:

  1. Organizations who do not constantly innovate will be left in the shadow of competitors who do. Manage risk at the speed of change. Organizations who plan and enable change to be part of their business plan will set trends vs. follow trends. 

  2. Meet to make decisions. Top performing organizations carve out time for “decision meetings” where firm plans are set, budgets are allocated, and accountability for results is established. 

  3. Ensure all marketing tasks/plans have direct alignment and are prioritized with your organizations overall strategic plan. 


Bagels & Brainstorming is part of L2’s thought leadership initiatives for the marketing community. Our group is comprised of marketing leaders from many segments of business. Through our discussions, we consistently redefine “what’s possible” in marketing.
