Marketing Society Annual Conference - Thursday 18th November 2010

The theme of the day was Leadership (I was glad to see that my former employer, Shell, is still sponsoring the Society's Marketing Leaders Programme). Excellent speakers, linked by leadership coach, Steve Radcliffe, keeping things simple and pulling out the key learnings.

Quotations of the day:
Dennis Turner, HSBC Chief Economist: "The recession, that time when even those who have no intention of paying you stop buying, is over."

John Prescott, quoted by Mark Price, MD of Waitrose: "Leadership is vision, compassion and courage". Mark added "and trust".

Warren Buffett, quoted by Mark Price: "If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

Goethe (?), quoted by Martha Lane Fox: "Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
