On Accelerate! Now: Episode 41 Front Line Friday with Bridget Gleason. The Death Of The Salesperson?
My regular guest on Front Line Friday is Bridget Gleason. Bridget is VP of Corporate Sales at SumoLogic. In this episode, we use an article titled The Death of the Salesperson as the jumping off point for our discussion about the future of sales and the changing role of the sales person. Will there still be salespeople in 10 years? With today’s prospects becoming ever less reliant on the salesperson, Bridget and I identify the challenges that all sales reps face in the battle to remain relevant to their customers and what that means in terms of the responsibilities that sellers must assume for their own professional and personal development. You’ll want to listen as we delve into the concept of value co-creation and what that means in terms of how sellers must collaborate with their prospects during their buying process. And, learn how this trend specifically will impact the next generation of sales people: millennials. Make sure you join us for this episode!

Music that psyches me up before and important sales call.
