What i bring to the table:
I’ve been around. I’ve done some things. let me leverage that for you.
[Ambidexterity: capacity to equally use both left and right]
effective marketing leverages both Creative (right brain) and Analytical (left-brain) thinking. I refer to this as “marketing ambidexterity.”
As reflected in my career path, design has always been my passion and garnered many accolades, but strategy that fired me up equally.
More than just making something visually appealing, I found myself asking deeper questions: Are we effectively utilizing current technology? How are we maximizing the talent of our staff? Are we effectively telling the story? Are our employees & customers truly statisfied? Was that actually effective?
For years I felt the need to focus in one area or the other, as if the two were battling for my attention. It wasn’t until I reframed it in relation to left or right handedness that I recognized they truly complimented each other. One who can utilize both hands is more productive than one utilizing just one or the other.
It is in that marriage of the strategy and the creative that I found my genius,
If you have a current project or are just beginning your marketing journey, let’s connect and explore how we might work together.
Don’t just take my word for it, here is
