Icon-HandsAttendees exchanged case studies and best practices for enhancing sales and marketing productivity:
  • Aligning teams with market segmentation and clean data
  • SDR resource planning and channel sales strategies
  • Rethinking content experiences and lead qualification frameworks
Icon-CalcFinance leaders shared dialogue with HR execs on elevating talent and then tackled:
  • Integration of people and process following acquisitions
  • Cyber security risks and assessments
  • Exit planning from pre-marketing to closing
