Part manifesto, part case-study directory, part 'how-to' guide: the gutsy little handbook for B2B marketers looking to '10X' their impact

Boring2Brave Summary

Boring2Brave: The 'bravery-as-a-strategy' mindset that's transforming B2B marketing by Mark Choueke

Hello. You're a B2B SaaS marketer, right?

Yeah, I thought I recognized you. What are you working on?

What's that? Whatever the sales team needs to close the next deal.

It's hard, right? The maniacal race to convert leads is an addiction for tech companies.

But such deal-driven focus means your B2B marketing often looks identical to that of your growing competitor set: complex, technical, product-led sales messages blurted into another whitepaper.

It's self-sabotage: 'fail to differentiate, blend in, become invisible'.

If this all sounds familiar, you need this book.


Boring2Brave is a step-by-step guide to showing how B2B marketing done differently can influence strategy and '10X' results.

It's 'get-off-the-treadmill' time. Stop being measured in metrics you've always known are meaningless and start building your company's brand and value.

Mark's 'Bravery-as-a-Strategy' approach unshackles you from the stale, ineffective drudge of conventional B2B software selling.

This book will equip you to inject audacity, invention and white-hot competitive advantage into your B2B marketing.

Just by being brave.

A former editor of Marketing Week magazine, Mark's 20-year career at the heart of global B2B marketing has seen him grow more than 50 B2B technology companies across the world.

'This book should be required reading for all B2B marketers.'
Desiree Motamedi, Senior Global Marketing Director, Workplace at Facebook

'Few business books are this funny and engaging.'
Anthony Eskinazi, Founder and CEO, JustPark

'If you're going to read one great book this year, make it this one.'
Pete Markey, Chief Marketing Officer, Boots

Boring2Brave shows you the treasure map, it's up to you to take the journey.'
Reilly Dunn, Senior Enterprise Account Executive, Slack

About Mark Choueke

A former award-winning journalist, Mark has built a reputation as a leader with a 20-year career at the heart of the global B2B marketing and communications arena.

He's been the 'media', the 'agency' and the 'brand'; has operated within large corporates and startups alike and has raised investment to found and run a successful business.

Mark was editor of Marketing Week magazine and earlier, B2B-focused marketing titles Precision Marketing and Data Strategy and was a business correspondent on newspaper The Sunday Telegraph.

Quitting journalism in search of adventure, Mark went to an agency where he worked alongside genuine advertising legends to create stuff that helped grow some of the world's greatest brands.

Since, Mark has served - either on senior leadership teams in-house or as a strategic advisor - more than 50 B2B technology companies across the world, spanning retail, marketing, advertising, e-commerce, travel, financial services and business operations.

Mark has built (and continues to build) a powerful global network of 'brave' people, including editors of relevant media including B2B Marketing, The

Drum, Digiday, Advertising Week and Marketing Week. Mark also regularly collaborates with leading thinkers and rebels across business, brands and culture. He's hosted two B2B technology marketing podcasts with a total listenership of more than 200,000 and appeared on various others. He's spoken on hundreds of industry stages in numerous countries including the likes of 'Think with Google' in London and 'Viva Technology' in Paris and invented benchmark industry events including Marketing Week Live.

Passionate about coaching and developing others, Mark has mentored for The Founder Institute and was a founding board director, media partner and speaker for The Marketing Academy.

A believer in 'always saying yes', in 2020 Mark performed live comedy improv with nine other chief marketing officers to raise GBP30k for Comic Relief.
