23 Jul Sales Confidence Live at GoCardless for SDRs — Video highlights
In June 2019, we staged another one of our exclusive live events for SDRs, in partnership with Venatrix. This time, at GoCardless HQ near The Barbican. We were thrilled to welcome 4 of the SaaS sales industry’s rising stars to speak at our event. All our speakers were SDRs, or had been in the recent past. Everything they spoke about was designed to help SDRs get better at their job. Everyone we talked to afterwards said how much value they got from it.
We’ve pulled together some video highlights for you, so even if you couldn’t be there, you can still soak up the knowledge.
