Een kort interview met Marion

Waarom mogen mensen jouw presentatie niet missen?
It will be pragmatic and a complete sharing of our learnings and tools on how to create professional B2B marketer.

Welke lessen kunnen bezoekers volgens jou leren tijdens een bezoek NIMA Marketing Day?
It will be an exchange of experiences of top marketers.

Welke recente ontwikkeling in marketing – het vak en de functie – boeit jou momenteel het meest en waarom?
I’m intrigued how the current interest in the tech world can translate into the customer world (as I fundamentally believe that, in the words of Henry Chesbrough, it’s better to have a mediocre technology with a great business model, than great technology with a mediocre business model)

Marketeers zijn er in veel soorten, maar wat is dé specifieke eigenschap die iedere marketeer nodig heeft voor succes?
Curiosity and a growth mindset

Wat is de persoonlijke missie van het merk Marion Debruyne?
To inspire people to challenge themselves and challenge the status quo

Wat was hét (toevallige) gelukje dat jouw marketingloopbaan een positieve impuls gaf?
Walking into Vlerick Business School was the trigger that totally changed my life and my career. An engineer transformed into a marketeer.

Stel dat je begin twintig zou zijn en opnieuw aan je loopbaan zou beginnen. Bij welk bedrijf zou je solliciteren?
