Marti Evans will be hosting the following webinar on April 2, 2019, from 12:00 p.m.–1:00 p.m. PT (3:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. ET).

Curiosity and listening can differentiate you and accelerate your career. In this webinar, Marti Evans will dispel any myths about what selling is, and she will share the "Five Steps to Becoming a Corporate Hero."

Technology firms have been plagued by the age-old question:

"Do you hire a technology person and teach them sales and an unabashed capability to pick up the phone?"


"Do you hire a salesperson and teach them the technology it has taken years of intense study to understand?"

Both of these options tend to yield less than satisfactory returns and value to their companies.

The prize . . . the technology person who can sell.

But do you want to carry a quota? And worse, do you want to leave the technical arena you have worked so hard to become an expert in? The answer is likely no to both questions.

In this webinar, Marti will first dispel some of the myths surrounding sales and what it takes to be successful. As an executive coach, she will work with attendees to identify the hidden biases, perceptions, and attitudes that may be holding you back from being a breakout performer and impacting your company’s top-line and why it is important for you to do so.

The roles of curiosity and learning will be explored. By following the "Five Steps to Becoming a Hero," you will stand out and be identified as a top performer, get advancement opportunities, and achieve greater job satisfaction.
