Episode #6: Sales, Marketing & Agency Trends with James Kemp

This week we talk to multi-million dollar coach, mentor and serial entrepreneur James Kemp. A kiwi/New Zealander by birth who now lives in Asia, James has a huge track record of success consulting and coaching clients from $5m – $500m.

James brings a fresh outside-in perspective to rural sales and marketing which we both agree sometimes suffer from some immaturity and lack of sophistication.

If you want to learn about the importance of offers, attribution and accountability, the future of ad agency models, platforms, marketing managers, media and what the best salespeople look like then this episode is for you.

James drops a ton of value bombs in this special episode so make sure you take some notes!
