Connect with Canada’s Top 30 Under 30 Marketers


Marketing Magazine recently published their second annual “Top 30 Under 30” list, honouring the young talent in the Canadian marketing industry.

We thought it would be useful to compile last year’s and this year’s lists into one comprehensive table including their social media profiles so that marketing industry leaders can easily get in touch with them.
