In this episode of Let’s Get Changed, we speak with Rai-mon Nemar Barnes, the Founder and CEO of Consciously, a conscious marketing company that deploys holistic marketing strategies with their partners and clients, particularly other conscious companies including B Corps, nonprofits, and startups led by women and BIPOC communities. We dive deep into corporate values to help shape internal company culture as well as influence external success. We also look at ecosystems as a fundamental influence when considering marketing strategies — alongside the role that stakeholders play in shaping your narrative. All this, plus the importance of jazz and sushi to keep the vibe nice.
