Aug 28, 2018
Greylock Ventures’ Talent Partner, Dan Portillo, and author of “Founding Sales” and cofounder of TalentBin, Peter Kazanjy, will discuss what it takes to hire and scale a sales team.
Beyond true product-market fit, one of the few things you can do to grow revenue and enterprise traction is to hire strong sales pros. But most teams struggle to recruit and retain sales leaders with the right experience, drive, and talent to build the rocket ship mid-flight. Join Founding Sales author and Modern Sales Pro Salon founder, Pete Kazanjy, and Greylock Partners Talent leader, Dan Portillo, to learn how you can:
- Identify the right sales hire profile;
- Build parameters to help you scale your team and revenue; and,
- Create a model for sales team onboarding and efficiency.
