Welcome back to Happy Porch Radio, season 2. In this episode I’m delighted to be able to share the story of choosing Umbraco from the other side of an agency relationship – the client.

Jessica Rowe is an experienced Director of Digital Marketing and has twice selected Umbraco for large digital projects. We talk a little about her background and the skill set she has built up over the years – and then she shares the story of how and why she selected Umbraco.

She very candidly talks about how a previous negative agency experience completely changed the way she approaches these projects, and then we really dig deep into the exact process she used to identify first Umbraco and then an agency.
