1) At Gorilla 76, we want to become the best industrial B2B marketing agency in the nation. To accomplish this, each member of our team strives to do their best and takes charge when needed. But that equality isn’t represented across the board in the marketing industry. In fact, research indicates that women are less likely than men to hold higher-ranking, decision-making positions in the online marketing industry. Who or what has inspired you to want to become a leader in the digital marketing field? (Minimum of 300 words)
2) Professional development matters in our field. A lot, in fact. We learn from each other, marketing publications, and working with our clients to find new ways to approach things. What does professional development mean to you and how do you make yourself better? (Maximum of 500 words)
