HubSpot INBOUND14 Conference Highlights and Insights with Shama Hyder

I just returned from HubSpot’s gigantic annual marketing conference in Boston, where 10, 500 fans and customers gathered to learn the latest trends in inbound and digital marketing.

One of my longtime friends, MarketingZen CEO Shama Hyder, also attended. Sadly, neither of us were able to get together and compare notes. We did the next best thing: We scheduled a session debrief by phone. We wanted to be sure that our clients did not miss out on key trends and announcements at this important marketing conference.

And as a thought leader, adviser, coach, and the founder of several diverse professional communities, I can no longer cover the fire with politeness and positive thinking.
