Malene has nailed the challenge of today's marketers; how to reach people. When we stop thinking of customers as numbers and start thinking of them as human, we make a connection. Marketing Made Human does just that. And if you want to succeed in marketing or business you need to follow this advice from Malene. This book was a pleasure to read. I kept nodding my head throughout! I loved it!

Barbara Gobbi, Entrepreneur and Marketing Strategist

This book changed how I feel about sales and marketing. Malene simply hacked the way we traditionally viewed marketing. As a purpose-driven leader, I now see my role as a marketer in a different light and I realize marketing is about generosity and giving to the person in front of you, what you wish you could give to many. Marketing is about caring for people. It's not about you. I loved how this book explains the sources of my previous struggle and offers a way to implement a new way of marketing my business that is much better suited to who I am and what people want.
