Corporate brands admire start-ups for their agility, to be able to make fast decisions and innovate on a rapid pace. But what can start-ups learn from enterprise marketing, the corporations that run like a machinery with hundreds and thousands of staff?
We are speaking with Aatif Basheer who knows enterprise marketing and the B2B marketing space inside out. He has a more than 10 Years of track records of working for brands and agencies serving corporates.
He currently is the Head of Marketing at Preqin, a financial technology consultancy firm, where he leads teams in Marketing Technology, Inbound marketing (SEM, Display and Social Advertising) and CRM integration.
Speaking about enterprises, everything happens on a different level. Decisions take longer, budgets are bigger, but also the tool stack is way different. Not everything works smooth at Corporates.
For example, Aatif shares that the tools that corporates are often outdated because adoption of new technology naturally takes time. With this conversation what aim to shed some light into the benefits of both types of company structure.
There are plenty of elements each side can learn from each other and implement best practices to become a more efficient and effective organization.
