Roger Edwards on Body Combat, writing a marketing book, and achieving a balanced life - MAF200

To celebrate the milestone 200th edition, I've invited a special guest onto the show to interview me.

It's a warts and all look behind the scenes, and we chat about Body Combat, fighting complexity, writing a marketing book, and finding the right balance in life.

Welcome to episode 200 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

For 200 episodes I've been asking my guests what makes them tick. Now my special guest, Chris Marr, asks the same question of me.

We chat about:

  • How Roger became a Body Combat instructor alongside his day job as marketing director in big corporate
  • The development of a career long obsession with keeping things simple
  • Why marketing sometimes fails to engage with customers and what to do about it
  • The genesis of Roger's soon to be published book and a world exclusive preview reading
  • Why family is so important in a business world driven by "hustle"

Who is special guest interviewer, Chris Marr?

Chris runs the Content Marketing Academy (CMA Community) and first appeared on the Marketing and Finance Podcast back in episode 80. Since then we've become good business buddies and close friends.

In 2017, I appeared on stage at Chris's CMA Live event in Edinburgh and we've both been working to develop our speaking careers.

The World Class Communication initiative Chris runs alongside US speaker, Marcus Sheridan, has helped my craft my speaking style and get myself on stages across Europe.
