“I am a huge fan of using powerful and sometimes highly complex, technologies to enable accelerated reach to all relevant audiences but on their terms. Business growth increasingly depends on implementation and skilled understanding of sophisticated platforms, as well as analysing data with the aim to drive incremental value to the end users. I can’t wait to see how the industry evolved again this year and what are best in class search strategies out there!”
