We love AI but we love humans more

Our Managing Director, Marina Pullin, was recently interviewed as to our usage of Chat GPT and marketing. SBS Insight (Australia) sought our views on AI and the impact it is having and will have.

It was an opportunity to highlight the changing work environment the challenges we’re having to consider with AI. 

Just to add to the story, the area we have successfully trialled Chat GPT in is as an alternative to social media marketing. We have implemented ChatGPT with our posting technology and it has helped refine our engagement with the three countries we operate in and the four generations we cover. 

It has been a deeply reflective trial and one that has raised some big issues.  We will always care for humans as the number one, but it is a big complex situation.
