Sales Smack: Are Sales People on Autopilot?

talk_smack_tshirt-p235820313607815274qqqj_400Our next Sales Smack is this Tuesday, February 9th at 7:00. We’re going to be talking about Sales people and engagement. Are sales people on autopilot? Have we gotten lazy?

I’m excited about this one because it’s not black or white. I am expecting some differing opinions. I definitely think sales has changed, and this change is causing sales people and sales organizations to struggle with the changes, but I’m not sure it has put sales people on autopilot. I think this is going to be a great discussion.

Sales Smack has been a great event so far. I’m really enjoying it. The discussions have been lively. The content has been provocative and the participants have been first class. I think this last piece is what is making Sales Smack so good. The people who are participating are killer. They’ve included David Brock, S. Anthony Iannarino, Jill Konrath, Skip Anderson, Paul Dunay, Tibor Shanto and more. Smart people are asking challenging questions, pushing the limits, creating debate AND adding different perspectives and knowledge. Like most things social, it’s the participation that makes the difference. It’s been fun to watch and I’ve learned a lot in the last two events.

I suspect Sales Smack is going to continue to grow. It’s a great forum for discussion, live discussion and live discussion is hard to come by these days.

Come by Tuesday night and check it out. It’s a lot of fun and for me I’ve learned a lot.
