I have just spend a fascinating couple of hours with Dom Burch the Senior Director for Marketing and Innovation at Asda Walmart. Dom writes an excellent blog that I thoroughly recommend http://domburch.blogspot.co.uk
Dom is a very talented leader with the rare talent of being a “systemic disturber”. He likes to challenge the way things are done around here and relook at marketing from a completely different perspective. He inspires and makes you think. What about you? Take the survey on www.jonathanperks.com to see how inspiring a leader you are.
Both banking and supermarkets are undergoing a huge disruption to the way things have traditionally been done. This is particularly fuelled by technology, regulation and customer demands. Unless you and your business can be nimble, have a high tempo (being able to change direction quickly without losing momentum) and are prepared to change, then you will go out of business and be made redundant.
So are you up to the challenge?
best wishes Jonathan Bowman-Perks
