Howard’s wit and insight into all-things marketing have made him a popular contributor in our magazine. It’s clear that he’s fully engaged with his subject – as he is able to breathe life into even the most prosaic of topics. For me, a great plus is the series of “aha!” moments he manages to work into each piece, whether through real-world examples or by pointing out how a small change can make a specific tactic relevant to your business. Having covered a variety of topics – from low-cost marketing tactics to how to recover from a PR disaster – Howard has at all times managed to stick to our key aim – offering hands-on advice that our readers can action themselves.
