I love the discussion on this blog and the conversations that happen on other blogs I visit. I think that is one of the best things about the web and social media. To those of you who visit often, you know this about me.
I’ve always loved a good conversation and debate. I love dinner parties for this reason too. There is nothing better than having a table full of really smart people sitting around talking about a good, profound topic. Discussion is energizing. It brings people together. It expands ideas. It challenges perspectives. It expands perspectives. It creates camaraderie. It’s fun.
Knowing this, I’ve been looking for a way to create more dialog. I wanted something where people could be heard. I wanted it to be real time and open to everyone, not just a few “select” people and I found it in TalkShoe.
TalkShoe in TalkShoe’s words:
“TalkShoe is a service that enables anyone to easily create, join,
or listen to Live Interactive Discussions, Conversations, Podcasts
In other words, TalkShoe let’s a bunch of people get together and talk via the phone. Think about it like a public web conference or conference call.
I dig this idea and have started a series of events called, Sales Smack. Sales Smack will tackle sales, business, marketing and entrepreneurial topics. They will be controversial, challenging and unique topics; topics that traditionally have multiple opinions and camps.
Why Sales Smack?
I think it will be a great way to learn, grow relationships, and get new information. Because it’ll be frickin’ cool to rap with all of you! It’s our very own sales dinner party.
There will be a Sales Smack event every two weeks. The first event will be Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. EST. You can check out the event here.
The first topic; “Is Sales Responsible for a Companies Growth?” This has been a wildly debated topic on this blog, so I thought let’s keep the discussion going.
What do you think? Do you have something to say?
