So I feel like I should start this podcast by singing "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" because today I get to talk to Deborah Marquardt who is the Chief Marketing Officer of The Diamond Producers Association. This is a new association that started in 2016 and their mission is to protect and promote the integrity and reputation of diamonds and the diamond industry. The thing that I was most fascinated with was how Deborah was able to help start a conversation shift around diamonds going from the traditional fairytale to more authentic storytelling. Take a listen!

There’s a lot about community in social media. There is so much about the beauty of people connecting and having conversations. And to our next guest, that’s very important but it’s also important to use social media to actually drive business. I loved interviewing Keira Krausz who is the Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Nutrisystem. She gave some great insights into how they’re using social media and how they’re cutting through the clutter to drive business and to surprise and delight customers. Take a listen!
