07 Oct Who are the best SaaS sales leaders in the UK?
It’s that time of year again. We’re looking for the 50 best sales leaders in the UK SaaS industry? Do you know who it is? Maybe it’s you? At Sales Confidence, we’re on a quest to find the best.
Nominations are open for our 3rd annual Sales Confidence Top 50 UK SaaS Sales Leaders list. Visit our site to vote now. Or, while you think about it, here’s what it’s all about.
The Top 50 Sales Leaders list is one of the best things we do at Sales Confidence. When I launched it in 2017, I couldn’t have imagined the impact it would have for Sales Confidence. It went completely viral.
I also didn’t realise the impact it would have for the sales leaders on the list. It would help shape their careers and the growth of their companies. Leaders who featured on the Top 50 list:
· Were able to attract more top talent
· Found recognition from their peers
· Received invitations to speak at events
· Put themselves on all the major VC’s radars
· Experienced life-enhancing career opportunities
I’ve sat down with some of the top VCs on the planet who target business in Europe and they all look at the list. I’ve had hundreds of messages from sales professionals who reference the list when deciding on their next role. It’s a powerful thing.
That’s why it’s great that we’re doing it again. Go and vote now!
Why do we do these awards?
I started Sales Confidence to be the voice of the SaaS sales community in the UK. We’re proud of the role we salespeople play in building innovative, disruptive businesses. We’re proud of the role our businesses play in growing the UK economy.
What better way to do it than by celebrating the top practitioners in our industry?
Sales is the lifeblood of any company. It’s clear that we’ve got some incredible sales talent in our industry. We want to promote these extra-special people, the people at the top as well as up and coming talent.
They compile lists like this in other industries, such as the law and media. Why not SaaS sales? We’ve got a lot to shout about. Let’s shout it from the rooftops.
In 2017 and 2018, when we put the Top 50 lists together, it was massively successful. We received so many votes we could barely handle it. Here are the excellent sales leaders we have recognised in the past. Who will be joining them this year?
· 1 — Peter Crosby — Triptease (now at Ometria)
· 2 — Jeremy Duggan — AppDynmaics
· 3 — Stuart Templeton — Slack
· 4 — Jennifer Bers — Onfido
· 5 — John Kingsbury — Qubit (now at PatSnap)
If you think you or your sales leader could top the list in 2019, it’s time to get voting. Visit the Sales Confidence site and do it now!
Who could it be?
We want you to tell us who you believe to be the best SaaS sales leaders in the UK.
Do you have a manager who does everything right? Do they inspire you? Lead you into battle? Protect you from the heat from above? Lead by example?
I also want to encourage as many nominations as possible for the growing number of female SaaS sales leaders. Sure, our industry is male-dominated. However, it’s up to all of us to ensure that women get the recognition they deserve and can be promoted as role models for men and women in SaaS sales.
Put your thinking cap on. Who gets your vote?
