75% of World Trade Flows Through Indirect Channels - Are You Enabling the Right People?

Speaker: Jay McBain, Principal Analyst – Channels, Partnerships & Ecosystems

The Harder You Work, The Luckier You’ll Get

Mr. Inside Sales

I was working with a sales manager last week—he manages a team of 20 inside sales reps with a direct report manager who helps manage half that team—and I asked him what kind of producer he was when he was selling. “I I was number one!” he answered proudly.
