After Quintiq I started as freelance marketing automation expert and worked on numerous successful marketing automation projects in a variety of markets and companies. Which lessons learned at Quintiq proved to be recipes for repeatable marketing automation success at other companies? Join my session and go home with strategic insights and actionable takeaways to excel in marketing automation.
