Video Interview with Chiqui Cartagena, Author, Latino Boom II

ChiquiCartagena_MiVidaTec_Profile_640x300Video Interview with Chiqui Cartagena, Author, Latino Boom II.  The book’s subtitle, “Catch the biggest demographic wave since the Baby Boom,” should surprise no one and it is, in fact, this growth that is at the heart of Latino Boom II.  Not only did the 2000 Census confirm what successful companies and astute marketers have known for years, but, well, just look around you. American Latinos and American Latino culture is everywhere.  So is the opportunity to engage, service, convert and capitalize on the growth of this important U.S. consumer segment.

Watch our “up close and personal” interview with Chiqui Cartagena, Hispanic marketing pioneer and author of Latino Boom II at her Univision Communications offices in New York, where she engages Latino audiences and industry partners alike as Vice President of Corporate Marketing.  Chiqui shares the inspiration for her Latino market-focused books (this is her second one), the latest Hispanic market trends (“Americaña,” Latinos in Tech) and, of course, her personal tech preferences.

Latino Boom II is truly a one-stop guide for the latest Hispanic market consumer data and insights, and a leading trusted resource from award-winning executive and brilliant marketer Chiqui Cartagena.

Thank you, Chiqui, and continued success!
