During my recent job search (which happily ended in me joining the Econsultancy blog team), I was amazed to see (way above my pay grade) a number of adverts calling for a ‘Chief Storyteller’ or words to that effect.

Every marketing team in every organisation is having to deal with a furious pace of change in all areas of business.

Content marketing is currently one of the most important trends in digital, and it’s one that presents a huge challenge for Western brands hoping to expand into the Asia-Pacific region.

Content is dead. Long live the conversation.

We marketers talk about content and storytelling a lot, but we may have taken our eyes off the most important thing of all: what our customers think.
