Can you introduce yourself briefly?
My name is Emmanuel Liebaert and since last year I work as a marketing consultant at 4P square.
How did you get in touch with 4P square and start working as a marketing consultant?
I got in touch with 4P square after graduating with my master’s degree. I was looking for marketing jobs on LinkedIn.
“The variety of clients and projects intrigued me and made me work here.”
What is a typical day like as a consultant?
I currently work as Marketing Automation Specialist for one of our main clients where my typical day starts off around 8:30.
I begin by checking my to-do list for the day or week.
This gives me a better view of my tasks and helps me divide them based on priority.
Usually, I tend to do a quick check of my mail inbox and upcoming meetings. Very often in the morning, there is also a marketing team meeting where we discuss our ongoing projects and their progress.
The rest of my day consists of finishing my To-Do list in order to effectively start the next day and keep the project on track.
What have been your most challenging projects as a marketing consultant?
My most challenging project is probably the one I am doing right now because it involves numerous stakeholders and a long-term approach, which is not always easy. Moreover, the magnitude of the project makes maintaining a 360° view is quite challenging.
What skillset does a 4P marketing consultant need to be successful?
In my humble opinion in order for a consultant to be successful he/she should:
- Be a quick learner
- Be able to process a lot of information in a short amount of time
- Be flexible in terms of adapting to different situations and work environments
Last but not least, tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I speak 5 languages. Dutch, French, English, Spanish and Portuguese. And I still aspire to learn one or two more in the future.
