Member interview with Melanie Lindquist

We are delighted to bring you a Member Interview with Melanie Lindquist, Managing Director (APAC) at Talon.

 

What’s your golden rule?

Don't burn bridges.

 

Who has been your biggest influence?

My mother. She is my centre.

 

What is your most hated business expression?

"We'll have to find some savings from the marketing budget."

 

What’s the smartest business idea you’ve ever had?

After a long time in traditional marketing roles, I took a leap into digital and learned it from the ground up.

 

Which leader do you admire most and why?

Cindy Gallop. She is bold, fearless, innovative and a staunch advocate for diversity and better representation in advertising.

 

What keeps you up at night as a marketing leader?

The ultimate question ... what's next?

 

Why is being part of The Marketing Society important for your career?

Being a part of a Society with such a diverse range of marketers lead by the best senior leaders in the industry. I'm always inspired by even the simplest of conversations.

 

Why does marketing matter to you?

Marketing is a science and an art and without great minds willing to make bold decisions, the discipline and its importance in business will be lost.

 

Tell us something that’s not on your CV

My favourite colour is #4B0082.
