The One Where We Chat With Azeem Ahmad About The Lack Of Diversity In The Industry

This episode, Sarah & Hannah chat with Azeem Ahmad, Digital Marketing Manager for Staffordshire University, who has over 7 years experience in the industry.

In the usual weekly 'quick-fire round' we find out what Azeem is missing most in lockdown and the last book he read.

They then go on to discuss his career, what he studied at university, his favourite digital marketing discipline (and why), programmatic marketing and much more.

The main topic of this week's show is about the lack of diversity in relation to BAME marketers in the industry and what we can do to fix that.

Azeem chats about the survey and two articles he has written on the subject, whilst also sharing his own experiences and how ignorance plays a big part.

Azeem is asked about unconscious bias and to recommend the best resources learn more about this topic.

I've been in Digital Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) for around 10 years, currently working as the SEO Manager at Captivate (part of Global), the world's only growth-orientated podcast host. I am a self-confessed SEO nerd (I find the industry fascinated and love learning how search engines like Google work) and a bit of a podcast addict (with this being the fourth podcast I have hosted). I am also a speaker and trainer. I hope you enjoy this podcast!

Seriously Excited about Optimisations (is this not my online dating profile?). I love everything SEO, especially a good SEO analogy. SEO Manager by day, at the weekends, when I’m not with Sarah in our podcasting and SEO bubble, you’ll probably find me (literally) with my head in the clouds, up a mountain - with my husband Dom (who hopefully ignores the bit about a dating profile). Cat mum, vegan baker and aspiring photographer in what’s left of my spare time ✌🏻
