Scott Monty and I first "met" as a contributors to The Age of Conversation series in which hundreds of bloggers wrote a page or two about marketing, compiled it into a book, and gave the proceeds to charity, many years ago. In 2015, Scott and I got to solidify our friendship by meeting at a Social Media Club event in Dallas. In between, Scott worked with Ford to take them from recession to relevance with some of the most interesting marketing that moved the needle.
Scott is also a man who can rock a bow tie. Seriously well. When I think of Scott, I think of that signature bow tie, which is his logo now as well as how he dresses. Super cool!
In this conversation, we talk about all of Scott's passions: marketing, Sherlock Holmes (he runs the I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere website and podcast), and podcasting. The time went too fast for us, and I know it will for you too.
