By: IDG | 01/03/2017
With the New Year comes New Year’s resolutions and an influx of self-improvement suggestions.
In addition to getting back to the gym, now is also a good time to focus on career growth—perhaps a path to a healthier career in 2017.
IDG’s CMO Josh London has spent the last year speaking with other CMOs about how they find success in our CMO Perspectives series. In addition to sharing strategic perspectives and insights from their organizations, they took a moment to share book recommendations for fellow marketers. So, as we think about health in 2017—physical and career, this is a great place to start working on your resolutions.
