How can an engineer become a "marketeer"?

There's no big difference in managing projects if you apply the same approach in designing a rocket engine rather than organizing a direct response campaign.
You must be aware of the boundaries conditions, the resources (financials, overheads, tools) and define the specific KPIs in order to manage and control the process at first, and the final outcome in the end.

In 10+ years I have matured experiences in B2B and B2C international and structured companies working in different industries, sales models and marketing strategies.

Specialties: Project management - market analysis - web marketing - process mapping and thinking - lead generation - customer journey - events planning, coordination and execution - co-marketing strategy and definition - negotiation with suppliers and partners - media planning - target oriented, interested in team work and all the aspects due to change management.
