Marketers often complain they are not taken seriously by the rest of their business, seen as doing the fluffy, creative stuff rather than leading on strategic thinking, so what can CMOs do to ensure the rest of the C-suite listens?

At the end of every week we look at the key stories, offering our view on what they mean for you and the industry. From Superdrug’s response to the cost of living crisis to how SMEs tackle long-term brand building, it’s been a busy week. Here is my take.
