In each episode of Confessions of a Marketer, Mark Reed-Edwards talks with a marketing leader or thinker about the deepest challenges in our business. Luminaries such as Beth Comstock, Whitney Johnson, Jacques van Niekerk and more have all shared their wisdom with Mark. Now in its second season, and covering everything across the marketing landscape--from brand to product to privacy, and everything in between--the podcast has become a must-listen for marketers around the world.
Episodes go live most Mondays and Thursdays.
On Episode 9, we’re chatting about the often-fraught sales-marketing relationship. Morris Porter is my guest. He and I worked together in the early 2000s at a dot-com company that was undergoing a massive business model shift. He was running sales and I was in marketing. Through all the hard work, hair-pulling and sleepless nights, Morris was cool as a cucumber. So when I wanted to talk about the sales-marketing relationship, he’s the one person who came to mind. He’s also worked at Cisco and Citrix—and is currently VP of Sales for Alpha Software.
