My regular guest on Front Line Friday is Bridget Gleason. Bridget is VP of Corporate Sales at SumoLogic. With more than twenty years of sales and sales management experience in the technology sector, Bridget joined SumoLogic’s executive team to lead and grow their inside sales organization. Her recent experience includes being VP of Sales for Yesware and SVP of Worldwide Sales for Engine Yard.
Bridget and I focus on two sales topics in this episode that you won’t want to miss. First, what is the role of luck in sales? Is it really true in sales that the harder you work, the luckier you get? And, why do sales leaders often overlook the hard work that goes into making a deal look easy? Second, we talk about why sales leads aren’t consistently followed up. The problem starts with the lack of a defined process for managing leads and we’ll tell you what you can do to fix that problem. If you’re in charge of a sales team, be sure to join us for Front Line Friday!
