Strong Business-2-Business (B2B) marketers are a rare breed. I've met many of them globally and over the years I've noticed a few characteristics that sets the strong, talented and effective ones apart from the rest. In order to analyse what makes them outstanding B2B marketers though, we need to accept a harsh reality that I see time and time again in B2B environments.

TEL AVIV, Israel - For but a sliver of land in the Middle East, with a population below 9 million, you'd never guess that Israel has the second largest number of companies on the Nasdaq, after China. It's also surprising to learn that it harbours the highest density of startups per capita in the world, leading to it now running with the moniker of 'Startup Nation'.

As we move into a communication world where high expectation, low marketing budgets and growing competition is the order of the day, the communications pool of public relations, below-the-line, integrated, above-the-line and digital agencies are scrambling to assert themselves in the new pecking order. Suddenly every agency is a social media expert, knows how to make your company "future fit" and has an iron-clad grasp of how AI will shape your workplace and industry.
