Sales and marketing go hand in hand for a company's success. Questions arise regarding what is best messaging, when to advertise, how should sales be involved and what each department's responsibility is. And now with even more focus on data and privacy, what can we learn from other countries?
In this episode, Paul de Vries, who is a major automotive industry expert in Europe shares what he sees as differences between his country and the US. Why he comes to the US to learn and why he asks some of the US experts to come educate his dealer body.
A great conversation to share concepts where Europe is ahead (EV, privacy, labor) and where he sees the US as a leader as well.
Enjoy it. is is a fantastic educational conversation.
