Jeremey Donovan is digging into this data more in his talk tomorrow: How To Get Promoted In Sales.

You’ll learn what it takes to get promoted to AE. And how to get promoted into a sales leadership position.

In the past 20+ years, he’s had a crazy unique career.

It’s spanned from semiconductor engineering to product development/management to sales/marketing leadership at Gartner, CB Insights, and now Salesloft.

He’s also co-author of one of my favorite prospecting books: Predictable Prospecting.

If you’re looking for insights on how to get promoted, you’ll definitely want to tune in.
