What makes a marketing expert? 

The relentless growth of AI is a question that we all have to reckon with at the moment as it’s increasingly used to support productivity and reshape creativity. While there are undoubtedly many positives to be taken from this, the flip side is that AI is making us recognise that the value of genuine human insight, authenticity and experience is more important than ever. 

Against that backdrop, we took it upon ourselves to find the top agency marketers out there right now and wow, was it tough. Tough to narrow it down to only nine, that is. There’s a lot of very talented people out there.

We looked not just for a solid track record of awards and industry accolades, but also at people looking at things a bit differently and who will hopefully encourage you to do the same.
With that in mind, we’re proud to present the ultimate list of marketers who are rewriting the rules and inspiring the next generation - give them a follow, and we promise you won’t regret it.
