16 Oct Sales Confidence Live Individual Contributors — Video highlights
On September 18th 2019, Sales Confidence staged another one of its exclusive live events for individual contributors. This time, our venue was the fantastic HQ of Box, high above Old Street roundabout in the White Collar Factory. We were thrilled to welcome 4 terrific speakers, all with content handmade for our 200-strong audience of individual sales contributors. Everyone we spoke to afterwards said how much value they got from it.
