This book is an indispensable guide for standing out right now in a crowded B2B world. Cash shines the light on the inconvenient truth, that in our quest for short term gains, we’ve lost sight of how to create brands that capture hearts and minds over the long haul. A must read.

This is a book about you, the hero of our story. You’re the much loved, often-misunderstood wearer of many B2B marketing hats. The technologist, the strategist, the customer champion, the data expert, the creative leader, the analyst, the storyteller. You’re the hard-working, ambitious B2B marketer of the current age, whether you’re a chief marketing officer (CMO) or one of the younger generation of digital marketers wanting to leap ahead and win.

However – and we hate to say it – there’s something that you don’t know. There’s a giant meteor spinning towards you, and it’s going to have a catastrophic effect on your profession. This meteor is the inevitable consequence of B2B marketing’s failings. And what would those failings be?

    James has a similar pedigree in marketing, having started his career at Saatchi & Saatchi (and leaving when he discovered his boss thought the ‘internet fad’ was going to go away). Seeing technology as a key solution to the issue of the world’s problems, especially climate change, he dedicated the next few years to technology marketing and eventually ran well-respected agency Mason Zimbler, growing it to almost 200 people across several countries.

    He now runs Rooster Punk with Paul. He’s a passionate environmentalist, a worrier about the future (in a good way) and is a community rugby fanatic.
