  1. Question 1: is the role of ‘strategic planner’ relevant? Isn’t ‘strategy’ a skillset, like ‘creative?’ Why are they artificially separated? Besides, being able to charge for it, that is. The model is badly broken and stuck in the past.

    1. Hi Tim, I think I’m finding as I go around the world that all kinds of people have all kinds of titles. Is the role relevant? At it’s best I think it is – someone who exists to inspire the client and the creative, to press for innovation, to illuminate with new questions to get at new answers. In the best teams, people aren’t so bothered with titles and there is egalitarian sharing of responsibilities and overlapping in order to get the best solution to grow a business. Unfortunately, a lot of people have this title and their job is defined as post rationalizing. That to me is artificial and unfortunate.

  2. What if I work in the US, but don’t work in a state? I’ve hoovered over the MD / VA border but can’t seem to select DC.

  3. Heather! Hi, it’s Caley Cantrell from the VCU Brandcenter. As you know, Richmond is not Argentina but we’d love you to visit us for your book. You are more than welcome to stay with me.
