Well folks I think we have out done ourselves on this particular show! The Guests were dynamic, the topics compelling and the exchange of ideas and perspectives informative.
We start-off with a Anne Stevens, CEO of SA IT Services , an up and coming organization here in Atlanta. Anne also brought some a rather unique perspective to the show as the former COO of Ford Motor company. Yes you read that right , Ford Motor company and was also instrumental in authoring “The Way Forward” plan, that kept Ford from having to take bail-out monies from the federal government. (unlike GM and Chrysler).
New to the Show but perhaps not his last time on the show, was Mr. Chris Combs, COO of SA IT Services and President & CEO of Coreguard. Chris is one of those rare executives that has the DNA of Sales Guy but with the attention of detail & follow through that you would normally only find in operational purest. And while his counsel to up and coming Sales Professionals is not something I might endorse, the perspective and insights he offers are well worth at listen.
Again another first timer on the show is Mr. Stephen Gilkenson but anticipate this may not be his last on the show. Stephen, as an executive search consultant, brings to this show a great look into what organizations are looking for in top sales people. Additionally, with his work as an Executive advisor at the Atlanta Telecom Professionals (TAG), and founder of the Association Sales Professionals and Sales 2.0 Best Practices professional discussion and networking groups with a combined 12,000+ members and growing rapidly, he shares how to leverage Social tools in all your business development efforts.
So if you are looking to figure out how to sell to and work with high powered CXX’s this is the show to listen to.
