Good morning, Marketers, there are signs of life

I don’t expect to hear the first cuckoo of spring in November, but there are certainly increasing signs of people emerging from isolation and looking for in-person meetings. Just this week, I heard from two CEOs of interesting in-the-news marketing tech companies who wanted, not to jump on a video call, but to actually meet in person.

They are both in town from the west coast and looking for conversations — doubtless with clients, prospects and partners first, then media — and it almost feels like old times. As for me, going to an in-person meeting is like a cold drink of water after months in the desert.
