How do we have better conversations with our prospects? and a hundred more. For some of the answers look at some of the articles I've posted.

Founder at Sales Summits
April 2009 - Present
The job of the Chief Sales Officer is the loneliest job in the world. You constantly get beat up by your CEO for more revenue, your people for pushing too hard, and your customers who want and demand more.
If you "carry the number" for your company or division and the above resonates with you, then you are a candidate to join a Sales Summit. Sales Summits are groups of 8-10 sales leaders who meet monthly to discuss their issues. This is a no bull session, no consultants pitching their wares, no boring presentations, just four hours in-person to discuss the pressing issues within the group.
Recent issues discussed include: sales compensation and models, social media, CRM implementation and best practices, customer research and surveys, and best practices in account management.
