Every week, I make it a point to bring you the latest news in video marketing. But rarely do the names of world leaders pop up on our radar.
Well, we received an exciting update from our friends at Vidyard, who were recently visited by Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau! Not only did they get to show Prime Minister Trudeau how video is changing B2B marketing, they also had an opportunity to ask him a few questions. You can check out the livestreamed recording below!
To give you a behind-the-scenes look at Trudeau’s visit, I interviewed Vidyard’s Director of Product Marketing, Jeff Gadway. Listen to this episode to learn more about Vidyard’s exciting week, plus the latest news about YouTube, Yahoo, Facebook, and SlingStudio!
