Speaker #1 Abstract: 


Transitioning to different roles in any company is a great learning experience. Many professionals explore various roles in organizations to get a sense of their inclination in a business setting. Others like looking for new challenges and variety in their career. In today’s environment, flexibility and diversity of skill sets are touted in social media, academia, and the corporate world. One area, often overlooked by professionals who come from a technical background, is sales and business development.


This role offers a wide array of personal development in areas like rapport building, powerful communication, effective listening, and cultivating prospects. Areas, where people with a technical background bring added value, are through sales and business development related metrics that utilize the quantitative nature of those from a technical discipline. Exploring the sales strategy and understanding how effective sales drive any organization is a skillset worth developing in any environment.
