Ep.5 A Modern Approach to Business

Paul Tansey is one of those really magnetic people and his company, Intergage are built in his image – there have been good times and bad times over the years and he knows that Intergage have had to re-invent themselves several times to stay current and move with the times.

Intergage are a forward thinking digital marketing company with an eye on the future – they know that both the workplace and the social media world are changing and they are continuing to keep pace. Whether that be through a 4-day working week in a flexible style or developing new ‘automated’ solutions but as you can imagine – all of this comes with its own challenges.

On this episode of The SalesChange Podcast, Matt chats with Paul about –

  • The process of growing from a sibling partnership to employing over 30 people.
  • The culture of Intergage – the value’s of how Intergage is run.
  • Which is more important, Sales or Marketing?
  • Digital Marketing and innovation goes hand in hand but where do the ideas come from?

  • Whats the worst job you could imagine doing?
