London-based Fabio Peyer recently joined Carlota Pico on The Content Mix to chat about his role as EMEA senior marketing manager at Morningstar, a financial services firm, in addition to his role as EMEA DEI (Diversity, Equity & Inclusion) Lead for the brand. Fabio talked about the challenges of marketing in traditional industries, and honed in on the notion that connecting and creating understanding internally is just as important as communicating with the public.

Fabio also discussed demand generation, leveraging multichannel marketing to meet your customers where they are, and the necessity of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

You can watch the full conversation in the video above or on YouTube, and listen to the podcast on Apple and Spotify.

You need to be aligned with your colleagues internally, and you can only achieve that by really speaking to each other across departments. You have to understand their business objectives and how they work in order to work together to make an impact.
