Three Strategies to Attract, Retain, and Develop Top SDR Talent at Scale

Finding great SDRs today is a challenge for every go-to-market team. And while plenty of time, energy, and money is spent finding and hiring SDR talent, properly retaining, enabling, and developing the SDRs already at your organization is often neglected due to high turnover, short job tenures, and lack of management bandwidth.

Tune in to hear from Ryan Policella, Vice President of Sales Development at Validity, as he shares the top strategies, tactics, and technologies he uses to keep high-performing SDRs engaged longer, coach up and ramp new SDRs faster, and build smarter, more efficient SDR workflows to remove technical roadblocks.

You will learn about:
  • The "coaching and development" gap that's resulting in higher turnover and shorter SDR job tenures, and how to stand apart and create an exceptional SDR culture
  • The most common "efficiency killers" crippling your team's ability to hit their goals, and how to address them at scale
  • The technical roadblocks to ramping new SDRs quickly, and how to enable a faster time-to-production with more efficient, intuitive CRM workflows

Speaker: Ryan Policella, Vice President, Sales Development, Validity

LinkedIn Tips Now That We Are All Inside Sales Professionals

If you grew your pipeline from networking meetings, trade shows, and conferences – or even visiting prospects in their office – you know you need to supplement your efforts.

In this session, Brynne Tillman will teach you how to leverage LinkedIn in a hybrid sales environment, including:
  • Demonstrating the social selling mindset that proves to your buyers that they actually matter to you
  • Positioning your profile to be value-centric, not just a resume – or, worse yet, a pitch deck
  • Finding and engaging targeted connections you have been ignoring
  • Leveraging your clients to get referrals
  • Doing and saying the right things to get hands raised and appointments set

Speaker: Brynne Tillman, CEO, LinkedIn Whisperer, Social Link Sales
