This week’s “Marketing Today” finds Alan Hart talking with Alyson Griffin, vice president of global marketing at Intel, where she’s recently taken the reins as global marketing lead for Intel’s IoT Group.

In the course of her conversation with Alan, Griffin talks about her decision to leave pharmacy school and embark on a career in marketing, her subsequent decision to leave HP after 17 years for an opportunity with Intel, and her advice for young marketers. Her willingness to embrace change is the common thread that runs throughout all of those elements.

In talking about change, Griffin says, ““Don’t be afraid of it. I’ve done it a lot in my career, changing, and I think it’s just made me a better listener and a better leader.”
