In this first of a series of debates with top marketers about the four must-have-tools every marketing department needs we interview Jeanne Hopkins the Senior Executive VP/CMO of Ipswich. The host is Jim Obermayer.
Jeanne Hopkins discusses not just tools but the buy-in that is needed from senior management in order to plan and execute marketing programs that work.
