In this GYDA Talks, Robert talks to Stefan Bardega. Stef is Co-Founder of Traktion, a new SaaS platform that helps businesses discover and hire the best freelance marketing talent. Stefan spent the previous 15 years building various agencies including two that reached number one spot: MediaCom and iProspect. He grew the MediaCom digital agency business from 14 to 300 people during tenure and was most recently CEO of iProspect in the UK, an operation with 700 people.
Robert and Stefan discuss:

Clients want deep specialism
The change is that clients know more

Talk to us about the new model that Traktion is building for marketing-led growth – more project-based, agile, lower overheads and data-driven
What does it feel like to be in the shoes of a “start-up”/new kid on the block?
