SAN FRANCISCO, July 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSlide, the sales engagement platform leader, today announced that VP of Marketing Michael Schultz will be a featured speaker at the Sales 2.0 Conference Tuesday, July 19 in San Francisco. In his compelling presentation, Schultz will reveal three key strategies that can help sales professionals crush the competition by supercharging productivity and leveraging modern engagement tools to transform sales performance.
The Sales 2.0 Conference: DNA of A High-Performance Sales Team is the premiere sales leadership event, bringing together hundreds of sales VPs, directors and managers to hear from top executives, industry trendsetters and analysts about the latest strategies to accelerate sales growth and drive improved results. The event runs July 18-19, with ClearSlide as a Premier Sponsor.
There are now more than 5 people involved in a typical B2B buying decision, which makes getting to the right people at the right time—and tracking those interactions effectively—a major challenge. Schultz will illustrate how investment in a Sales Engagement Platform delivers insights to help sellers, sales managers and marketers meet changing customer expectations. Aragon Research forecasts the market for Sales Engagement Platforms to grow into a $5 billion industry in the next five years, up from just $780 million today.
Schultz is a 20+ year veteran sales and marketing professional. Before ClearSlide, he served as VP of Strategic Alliances at DocuSign, and spent eight years with Microsoft in various SaaS product management and marketing roles. Schultz has also served as a strategy consultant at Andersen Consulting (now Accenture), and has held several senior positions with venture-backed and publicly-traded companies. He earned an MBA at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business and a BA from Tufts University.
