How Zendesk Spun Up Its Morning Show, with Prelini Udayan-Chiechi, Zendesk
In this episode of SaaS Half Full, host Lindsey Groepper chats with Prelini Udayan-Chiechi, VP Marketing EMEA at Zendesk. With all in-person events cancelled, Zendesk realized their traditional digital avenues for sharing content were no longer cutting it — they were getting lost in the noise with everyone else. Prelini and her marketing team pivoted in a big way, delivering the Zendesk Morning Show, an in-house news-style show hosted from Prelini’s guest bedroom.
Even more impressive? The Zendesk marketing team spun up the idea, produced and released the first episode in just three weeks’ time.
Listen as Prelini shares how the Zendesk Morning Show came to be and what she learned as she and her team went from marketers to producers overnight.

The Surprising Rise of WFH Sales Productivity with Ryan Barretto, Sprout Social
In this episode of SaaS Half Full, we talk with Ryan Barretto, SVP Global Sales at Sprout Social. When his sales team went remote, the traditional framework of 9-5 sales pivoted, and Ryan had to allow his sales team to work within the new constructs of an at-home office life.
Offices closing around the world forced B2B SaaS sales and marketing teams to alter course in selling their products. It also changed companies’ sales cultures and left leaders worrying: Would sales productivity take a dive? How do we hold our teams accountable when emotions are at an all-time high?
Listen as Ryan shares how his inbound-heavy sales team pivoted to meet customers’ needs through a tumultuous year (spoiler: education trumped empathy) and what SaaS CMOs should understand about the new demands of their social media managers.

Giving Away Your Sales Data with Jim Benton, Chorus.ai
In this episode of SaaS Half Full, we talk with Jim Benton, CEO at Chorus.ai, who joined the company the day the world locked down. Jim quickly pivoted his work style to lead a team he’s never met, and came up with the brilliant idea to share his company’s data in a unique format to help other struggling sales leaders.
When B2B marketing and sales went remote, it spawned a lot of questions companies had to contend with. Was it the right time to sell products? Could they even afford to retain their staff? Companies required data to navigate a new normal, but where would it come from?
Listen as Jim shares Chorus’s pivot to freely providing their platform data to answer those questions and many more during the Chorus Weekly Briefing — hosted by Jim — and how the show is helping transform the way sales teams hire, coach and sell in today’s remote world.

What B2B Marketers Can Learn from Jackass with Tim Glomb, Cheetah Digital
In this episode of SaaS Half Full, we talk with Tim Glomb, VP Content & Data at Cheetah Digital, who leveraged his previous B2C experience with MTV’s Jackass to pull off a killer B2B virtual-event promotion.
With nearly every annual event going digital in 2020, it’s easy to understand why people are burned out on them. This leaves B2B marketers creating online events with a new challenge: How do we stand out from thousands of other events and make people want to attend?
Listen as Tim shares Cheetah’s pivot to promoting their online event more like a B2C brand by tapping Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and skydiving with execs, as well as how to get even the most conservative leadership teams onboard with your wilder ideas.
