The Worldly Marketer Podcast
receives the Think Global Community Award

It was in May 2016 that I first launched The Worldly Marketer Podcast. Now, three years and 140+ episodes later, I've built what I hope is a useful archive of expert interviews around how to grow a successful global business.

Along the way, I've tried to build better awareness and appreciation between two fascinating, quickly-evolving industries: marketing and localization. As someone with a foot in each, I believe that these communities would benefit enormously from understanding each other better and collaborating more closely. Through my podcast, I've tried to create a platform that encourages open dialogue, continuous learning, and greater cooperation between these two fields.

Well, it seems I'm on the right track: I just received the most wonderful recognition from the folks at Think Global Forum: the  Think Global Community Award!

Needless to say, I'm absolutely thrilled and incredibly honoured. I'd like to express my gratitude to all the  Think Global Awards organizers and judges.  I'd also like to send out a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to making  The Worldly Marketer Podcast the award-winning show it has become: each and every one of my amazing guests, my sponsors, and, of course, my regular listeners. Without you, there would be no Worldly Marketer Podcast.

Thank you all.

Let's keep on learning and keep on growing together!
