The ‘Marketing Greats” initiative aims to develop and retain marketing talent in the North East region.  It aims to provide insight into the importance of a strategic marketing function and to inspire both existing marketing professionals and young people considering a career in marketing.  Each ‘Marketing Great’ is profiled in an online case study which includes their words of wisdom for aspiring marketers alongside their career story and why they enjoy working in the region. It provides a regional platform for marketing to be recognised as having a key role in business growth while celebrating the number of senior marketers located in the North East.
