Commenting on AI’s increasing significance in digital marketing, Hina said, “We are living in a time of continuous change. To succeed every organisation needs to be ready and plan for AI-led digital disruption. It can only be achieved if marketers know and master AI-powered developments and align them with their company’s strategic goals.”
