Jenni Romaniuk 2

Please accept statistics cookies to listen to this podcast.

This week, we opened wide and said 'aaaah-nd welcome back' as we once again caught Better Brand Health author, Jenni Romaniuk.

Research Professor and Associate Director at that conveyer belt of marketing minds, the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute, Jenni has advised many of the world’s biggest brands and authored what’s now a trilogy of true industry bibles.

3 years and 1 new book better, we snared Jenni for a second Call To Action chinwag on penning Better Brand Health, pomegranate trees, marketer’s frustrations around brand tracking, shiny new metrics, brand rejection, attributes, memory, charming condiments, healthy cars, a rant on Net Promoter Score, $3 hot dogs, a salacious soft p*rn novel, and a quick fire question she answered with a third alternative which was to gouge her eyes out with a spoon...

If you haven’t already, you’d be a fool not to fill your ear canals up with Jenni’s first cameo on Call To Action, here.

And enjoy her current favourite ad, Go A Moe’s, if you’re after a serious earworm (or $3 hot dog)
