Minter Dialogue with Dave Parkinsondave-parkinson

Dave Parkinson, the Geordie Geek, spent over 25 years at Nissan, having been head of social and digital. He recently created his own consulting partnership, Brave & Heart, that promises to be “the antidote to juggernaut consultancies.” In this interview, we look at some of the sterling lessons learned of driving the social media and digital agendas at the Nissan Group. We also discuss the role of agencies tomorrow, the way managers must lead and how to add some brave and heart into your brand.
