BMJ’s Proust-inspired Branding Questionnaire with Zumba CEO Alberto Perlman

Alberto Perlman

A few weeks ago I introduced my Proust-inspired questionnaire, which aimed to reveal the taker’s insight into branding, marketing, and business; as well as his thoughts on what made his company a success.

This week I am honored to share with you the answers of Alberto Perlman. A man who helped create a worldwide fitness phenomenon that motivates, inspires and changes the lives of millions around the world. His answers are smart, humble and, I think, really reveal why Alberto was capable of building this tremendous success. His co-founder, president and COO of ZUMBA, Aberto Aghion, will also answer this form next week. At least I hope he will. It will be interesting to see how his responses compare.
