Tips for Leadership and Coaching to Guide the Next Generation of B2B Marketers

Written by

Where will the next generation of B2B marketers come from? It’s likely a good number of them are starting their careers at agencies, where they work long hours serving demanding clients, and – let’s be honest – doing the grunt work of the B2B marketing business.

If these young marketers are fortunate enough to work for good leaders and people invested in being mentors and coaches, they will be at a tremendous advantage whether their career path keeps them in B2B marketing or takes them elsewhere.

In this week’s episode of B2B Nation, we talk to Pedro Ramos, Executive Director of Performance at OMD EMEA, about leadership in the B2B marketing space, and how coaching and mentoring helped him grow his career.
