Kerry-Ann Stimpson

Revolutionizing Internal Marketing from Kingston


Christabel Nsiah-Buadi

WOOSAH! It’s the end of the school year in my neck of the woods. 

And my eldest kid is moving on to middle school. It’s all-change here!! I gotta say, the transition to summer break is always a struggle for me. Like many guardians of school-aged humans, trying to entertain kids at home or taking them to camps that start at different times of the day often challenges my ability to maintain the good habits (like working out) I’ve tried to (re)establish. Wish me luck!

I’ve also been thinking about ‘habits’ related to audience development, partly because of my dynamic conversation with this week’s guest, Kerry-Ann Stimpson. I learned so much from this conversation! She is the Chief Marketing Officer of JMMP Group, a bank that was co-founded based on…wait for it… love.’ Yes, LOVE! The company’s founders looked at their community needs and habits and worked to address THOSE. Decades later, the bank is beloved by its customers.

So here’s some food for thought: Do you know your audience’s habits and needs? How are you serving them from a human-centered perspective? Do your IG posts drive people to your content, or nah? And is your content driving engagement - and opportunities to you - via what Kerry-Ann calls the ‘dark social’

Listen to the show to understand what she means.

Do you know your audience’s habits? Would you like me to help you strategize? Reach out, and let’s talk!

As always, enjoy!
