Sales Confidence Live 5 - Video highlights

Back in May 2018, Sales Confidence staged its 5th live event at GoCardless HQ in London. We were thrilled to welcome 4 of London’s most influential SaaS speakers to our event. For the first time, we welcomed a sales coach, which really gave our event a new dimension. We’ve pulled together some video highlights for you, so even if you couldn’t be there, you can still soak up all the knowledge.


Hannah Godfrey – How to scale your business internationally 

Who? – Hannah is a startup advisor at Winning By Design, SaaS sales strategists.
