“Anybody who wants to see the way a conference is run, and the way an academic community can be, should attend a macromarketing conference.”

So says Dr. Tony Pecotich, Professor Emeritus of Marketing at the University of Western Australia, esteemed marketing expert and award-winning scholar of the Journal of Macromarketing (JMK).

In this podcast, Dr. Pecotich talks with Dr. Cliff Shultz about his experiences—from mentorship to conducting field research in war-torn Croatia—and draws on extensive knowledge of history, geography and the arts, explaining why broad scholarship is necessary to advance the field of marketing. He talks about implications for society and human welfare, why communist Russia would have been better off had Stalin picked up a macromarketing text, and why he’s never left a macromarketing conference disappointed.
