Watton ‘n’ Cox

Kate Cox, Vice President and Chief Marketing Office EMEA for GoDaddy + John Watton, Senior Director for Enterprise Marketing EMEA at Adobe Systems

In this episode, we hear the different ways that Adobe and GoDaddy inject some emotion into their marketing to build strong relationships and how technology has levelled the playing field for SMEs with modest budgets. We learn about Freddie Flintoff’s penchant for painting figurines, why it’s a good thing to encourage staff to pursue side hustles and the panic that sets in when a business pitch goes sideways.
