Business Meeting

PreSales Leadership Collective

September 24th, 2020

Virtual Roundtable:

Identifying and Developing SE Leaders

(Registration closes September 18th @ 5pm PT)

About the Event

As a PreSales org scales developing leaders on the team is critical to the growth and success of the business.  One of the most impactful things a leader can do is identify high-potential individuals on their teams and develop them into leaders.  Great leaders position the company for success, drive innovation, and transform organizations to attract strong talent.  On this roundtable we will focus on how we can identify and attract potential leaders as well as develop and coach them as they take on leadership roles.

Each roundtable event is hosted by one of our PSLC members. Thank you to Vikram Gupta, Sr Director PreSales (Americas and LATAM) @ Akamai Technologies, for hosting this event!

Note: This group is designed for PreSales Directors and above who have the ability to make an impact in their organization and are looking for events that are exclusive and intimate. To allow for discussion and active participation there is a 12 member limit for this virtual roundtable event (with 2 breakout rooms of 6).  We will maintain a waitlist.
