About the episode:

In a world where digital marketing is king, it’s easy to forget the power of good old-fashioned event marketing. But this tried and true approach can still be highly effective in engaging potential customers and driving leads. All that said, event marketing is its own breed and can lead to unique mishaps and uh-oh moments.

Stefanie Maragna is a passionate, tenacious, motivated sales and marketing professional with 20+years of experience in both sales and marketing fields. She has a strong track record of success in sales, field marketing, events, customer advocacy programs, and marketing communications. She has worked both in FMCG, Not-for-Profit and IT. Currently managing corporate marketing at Sage Intacct, Stefanie has many experiences and “Oh-Shit” moments to share, highlighting what can happen when working events for enterprise-level brands.
