what we learned from Ali

Ali went into marketing thinking that she wouldn't need to do math.

Her mind has no limit on the number of things it can worry about at any given time. 

One of the reasons for the success of the marketing campaigns she led was that she worried about every single detail.

She didn't complete her PhD in Philosophy because she realized almost any other career was a better one.

Notable quotes

[02:22] "I see myself as a conductor and that my department is the symphony. That we get the score or the strategy that I have worked on with the rest of the executive leadership team and then it is my job to go make sure that my department executes everything as they should be. So Creative is the strings and Operations are the winds, but they all have to work together at the same time."

[05:49] "When you think about reputation, it is that your brand is the promise that you make; and your reputation is that people actually think you are living up to that promise."

[20:36] "Become a brand that people want to spend time with." 

[24:07] "Your employees are your best underutilized brand representatives. They live and breathe it. So, get them to do that."

[27:02] "Don't let your own head get in the way of it. Acknowledge the fear, but use that to make you better at what you're doing, not get in your way."
