Failure - Adam Tuckwell
Failure is glamourised within personal development disciples, but much of the chat is without substance - discussing failure as a concept that is to be embraced: yet never really sharing one's own failures. That's why this talk by Adam Tuckwell is useful. In this talk, Adam not only shares why failure is important, but also shares his own. A brilliant talk.

To blog, or not to blog - Jeremy Knight
As marketers we've been told that blogging is the most amazing thing since forever. But that's really tiresome. It's a grind, and getting results is hard to come by meaning it can be demoralising. Therefore consider this talk a shot in the arm for all you marketers out there. As an inbound guy, Jeremy unsurprisingly argues in favour of blogging. Why? ... Well you'll have to listen to find that out :)

Storytelling - Martyn Richards
We've all heard storytelling is important - we've even heard it on this podcast before. However, now it's reached a full buzzword status - it's always good to revisit a pro discussing the topic rather than your mate Bill reciting what their boss told them last week. Enjoy this funny, interesting, engaging talk in which Martyn valiantly battled a nasty flu to captivate The Marketing Meetup audience.

Creating a movement and Appointing a Hero - James Parton
Ever wonder how small companies make it to unicorn status through their marketing? It's all about creating a movement behind the company that transcends the functionality of the product and makes customers understand exactly how something will affect their life, as well as what something does. In many ways, this is marketing 101, yet so many of us get so wrapped up in the day to day we lost sight of the things that really matter in our efforts. In this talk, James Parton gives the inside track of how to create a movement, just like he did at Twilio, the unicorn tech company just a few years ago.

PR at Kettle Foods - Tash Jones
Kettle Foods are on a mission to become the 'hoover of crisps' - i.e. the brand so synonymous with crisps they become a byword for the food. One tool to achieve this ambitious aim is PR: often an unexploited and misunderstood channel.

Creating and distributing amazin' video - Colin and Sue
Video HAS to be a tool in any marketers kit today - it's no longer new, it's not even that hard to produce. And yet, for some reason, video still seems to be very very successful for some, and a complete mystery for others. In this 'double-header' talk, Colin and Sue discuss not only the things you should be thinking about when creating a video, but also the second (neglected) half of video: how and where to 'get it out there' to.

Building an Online Community - Ed Goodman
It's not beyond the realm of possibility that you think building a strong community of customers around your products or brand is a really good idea. And yet, so few communities actually thrive, prosper or indeed ever get beyond that initial stage of inviting your mum to like your Facebook page. Ed Goodman has built a community of over 3000 freelancers. More impressively however - the community is engaged, helpful and until recently - entirely online. In this talk, Ed shares why he thinks Freelance Heroes has been a grown and been successful, and the steps he has taken to make it such.

Saying 'no'. Whole ass one thing! - Daisy Kingham
It's really hard to say no, especially when an idea is exciting or the person pitching it to you is really enthusiastic about it. But often, especially in a world where marketers have so much thrown at them on a daily basis, it's important to say no - so you can truly give your all to one thing. In this talk by Daisy Kingham, she takes you through her model for deciding what to say no to - leaving you with a model for prioritisation, as well as grounds for saying no, but in a nice way.

Objection handling - Lee Carnihan
Objections are just another way of your customer saying you haven't met their needs... yet. An awareness of where a customer will commonly object to your marketing means you can safeguard against it - meaning your sales process becomes easier, and ultimately - you sell more stuff. In this talk, Lee Carnihan explores a bevy of common objections marketers fail to overcome - proposing solutions, and showing you what the final product looks like. A top talk from a top chap. Slides from the talk are also available here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ioa1xi6l8etuk84/AADyz5JXMXIL8cXLIlXn5Raua?dl=0

"This channel doesn't work for us" - Joe Glover

In this back to basics talk, Joe reviews the model that has saved him a lot of anxiety and had a huge impact on how he discusses marketing with colleagues and senior management alike.
