Brian Halligan is one the very best founders out there— he hypothesized a entire genre of marketing and built a $20B company out of that idea: Hubspot.
Brian is the co-founder, longtime CEO and now executive chair of Hubspot, a full service marketing platform worth $23B today. Brian coined the term “inbound marketing” and helped give rise to one of the biggest shifts in marketing of the last 20 years.
In this episode of World of DaaS, Brian offers a deep dive into the intricacies of boardroom politics, effective leadership transitions, and the ever-evolving landscape of marketing in the AI age. He offers a candid perspective on what makes a bad board, and how to steer clear of individuals who are a “waste of a board seat.”
As the conversation unfolds, he forecasts the future of marketing, envisioning a landscape transformed by AI and the democratization of information. He highlights the unique model of renowned venture capital firm Sequoia and draws comparisons between the cultural dynamics of the tech scenes on the West and East coasts.
