Marketing -  is it "pink and fluffy"?

Some time ago when I was out networking (always a joy) I was delighted when a visitor approached me saying she had remembered a talk I had given 4 years ago.

The thing she remembered most vividly was me standing there with a pen complete with pink feathers saying that contrary to popular opinion marketing was not pink and fluffy at all.

The most important hour of your life

An executive called me up a few months ago in existential pain. He had spent the last several years pursuing a career path he now admitted was not right for him. He had overstayed his time building a software company when he really wanted to be teaching and writing. An optimist by nature, it had surprised him to find how off track he had become without ever intending it. Almost as concerning as being off track was the realization that it had happened without any deliberate choice on his part. How was this possible? Why do otherwise smart people end up strategically adrift? And what can we do about it?
