Another marketing lesson accountants and lawyers can learn from football

26 February 2014

Forget the gadgets.  Forget the next big thing.  Don’t use the virtual as an excuse not to do the physical.   Go back to what you know works.  Get out there, talk to people, stay close to your clients and professional/industry contacts, get on with them and stay in touch.
