Meet the experts: anthropologist, professor, banker to star on The B2B Lab

An anthropologist, a professor and a banker walk into a studio… 

But this is no joke – it’s B2B marketing – and you’re invited to pick their brains. What will you ask?

Join Jason Juma-Ross, Professor Bill Merrilees and Ian Webster on Tuesday 26 August as they tackle the big questions in business-to-business marketing in Australia, by tuning in at 11am to The B2B Lab, the live-streamed panel show where viewers ask the questions.

This episode, they’ll take on one of the biggest, baddest issues of all: the GFC. Or more interestingly, the post-GFC Australian business environment. Have B2B sectors ‘closed the door’ on tough times? What changes are permanent, and what’s returning to normal? What even is the new normal?

Anything and everything about B2B business and marketing is fair game – don’t hold back.
