What people have said
Mari was very precise and to the point with her advice, concerning our current situation and how to go forward. We thoroughly enjoyed the session and loved her approach to growth hacking.
Her deep dive session provided concrete solutions to the questions asked throughout the session. It was a good presentation overall when it came to her format; clear presentation; important and useful topic. We will probably adopt heavily from this in our sales/marketing approach. Happy that she gave the space for comments and questions.
Mari’s session was very concise and practical. The advice came from years of hands-on experience. Plenty of insight on metrics and what to look out and I liked Mari's passion for growth hacking.
