Jeff Plowman

V.P. Client Services, McMillan

“The world of business and marketing has changed forever. We identified Agile Marketing as one of our key strategies and Jim Ewel’s name kept coming up. Jim’s training on Agile Marketing for the agency was amazing. Jim got the key agency teams out of their comfort zones, and got them to start to think differently about not only how we interact with our clients, but also how we operate internally. The sessions were very hands on, practical and Jim left us with real, actionable next steps for the whole agency. Invaluable!”

Caleb Rubin

VP Marketing, Equitable Bank

“Great marketing teams know how to learn – and the best way to do that is through structured rapid experimentation. Through agile training, Jim provides the tools and process for teams to excel here and truly evolve marketing from an output to an outcome organization. Simply an incredible agile coach!”

Peter Francis

Chief Growth Officer, Sprinklr

“There are two kinds of marketers today—those that have embraced the shift to rapid iteration, and an outcome orientation (in a word: Agile), and those who are learning the hard way by being outplayed in the market. Jim Ewel has written a masterclass in Agile adoption, distilled from years of coaching growth organizations of all sizes through the transition.”
