How to Be A Data Visionary

Millions of data points. A singular vision. Those are at the core of the new NetApp campaign, and the results were pretty significant. Over 70% of folks who saw the campaign saw NetApp as “a new company,” while website traffic tripled. So, yeah, pretty successful. So how’d they pull it off? A blend of tactful digital rollouts, account-based marketing, and more. It also came down to the idea of being a data visionary, and that, as CMO Jean English puts it, “everyone wants to be a visionary.

On this episode, Jean further explores the notion of being a visionary, and the crucial role boldness played in shaping this successful campaign.

Listen in to hear more about her fail fast and move forward mentality, about aligning her vision across the company, and more.
