CeCe Bazar and Blake Harris are Sales and Growth Strategists for OpenView Labs which is part of OpenView Venture Partners. Day in and day out they work with various thriving startups to guide them through their sales and growth strategies. That means they have visibility and experience helping a multitude of companies and have a strong understanding on what really works, and what was just a fluke success. I can’t wait to see what they take from those deep experiences and package it up for us in their session.
Jeff Hoffman is the founder of BASHO. A sales strategy that has been a staple for some of the biggest tech sales teams globally. Companies like Salesforce, Linkedin, Marketo, Zendesk, Akamai, Hubspot and more plus many well known sales leaders have been trained using his sales strategies. On September 15th, we get a peak at some of his best , original work, for a lot less than he charges these gigantic companies.
Ilya Semin is the CEO of Datanyze and has built a unique and extremely useful tool to help salespeople figure out who is using your competitors software. More importantly, they are well past $1 million in ARR and have been running for less than 2 years with only 1 engineer and 4 sales reps, two of which are fairly new. I bet you’d like to know how they did it. You’ll have to come find out.
Peter Gracey is the founder and COO of AG Salesworks. They help companies with the front end of the sales process and have developed something they call the Outbound Index. Peter will take us through how a few different companies are getting ahead by leveraging a series of innovative tools and systems. We’ll dive into each one as he highlights what works and what doesn’t. Dear Outbound sales teams, you do not want to miss this.
Mark Roberge is back again as we love his scientific approach to scaling sales. Mark will focus on hiring and scaling sales teams and organizations. This is a topic he knows better than most having scaled Hubspot to over 500 sales reps over the past few years. Many of his earliest sales hires are now Founders/CEOs at rapidly growing startups. His MIT and engineering background gave him an advantage that he uses to create a profile of the perfect hire, so you can get it right every time.

Kyle Porter is the CEO of SalesLoft and their revenue proportionate to number of sales reps is becoming awfully lopsided. In the past 7 months they’ve gone from $180K to $2.5 million in annual recurring revenue, with only a small SDR team, based in Atlanta. Kyle has personally guided their sales efforts and has thoroughly evaluated over 400 company’s SDR teams in the process. He’ll share his experience and knowledge that should surely provide any salesperson, Sales Development Rep, or even Account Executive an arsenal of new tactics to implement.
Matthew Bellows is the CEO of Yesware, which sends out hundred of thousands, if not millions of emails per day. They’ve hired a team of data scientists to sort through this data to pick out trends they can use in their sales process. Matt has carefully evaluated this information and has implemented the changes in their sales team at Yesware. We can’t wait to see what he’s uncovered and what golden nuggets we can takeaway from it.
Ed Calnan is the President of Seismic and has a very robust sales background. He’s been in tech sales for over two decades and is now on his third successful sales executive role. Ed is going to get us thinking about our sales channels and how to measure what partnership/sales routes are best for your company. He’s had tremendous success starting and scaling many different sales channels and sales divisions within his organizations, so who better to guide us than Ed?
Tawheed Kader is back again. As the CEO of ToutApp, an outbound email campaign service, he understands a thing or two about messaging and prospecting. TK’s experience with sales reps everywhere has allowed him to understand what really works in the prospecting phase of your sales process. He’ll be diving into the routine of touching your customers via email and how to build a rapport and relationships at scale.

This is something she’s been doing for years but is fresh, new, and original content for our conference only.
Mike McGuinness is a serial VP of Sales for large tech companies. It’s safe to say he’s seen just about everything and clearly, he’s figured out what works and what doesn’t when scaling a sales org. Mike will dig deep into building fast paced and high efficiency sales teams both from the manager’s and the rep’s perspectives for companies of all growth stages.
Jeff Fagan is a Partner at Atlas Ventures, and a VC that invests heavily in SaaS and Enterprise technology companies. He also participates as a board member in dozens of companies that are focused on B2B sales. His unique experience with these companies gives him a perspective on sales growth unlike any other.

Wow! So How Do I Sell This To My Boss?
Tell your boss they’ll never make a better investment in the future of THEIR sales team or YOUR career for a price THIS affordable. Period. Just look at that list of actionable knowledge you’re about to gain. Sales Hacker Conferences are still intimate, so you’ll even get a chance to mix it up with the speakers before and after their sessions. Our audience is full of top notch, up and coming salespeople that are looking to connect, learn, and maybe even recruit or be recruited.
So, cancel that Netflix subscription you never use, tell your boss you’ll come out of pocket if they won’t send you, or do whatever you need to do, but miss this at your own risk.
The “How to Sell Your Boss” Checklist
1. What’s your company’s average deal size? Ok, so if you land even one deal from something you learned or a connection made at this event, you’re on top!
2. If you learn one new thing you can implement at your company, what is that worth?
3. Is your company hiring? This is a great place to find talented salespeople who actually care, and want to master their craft as a salesperson.
4. You can finally meet face to face with those big wigs at Company X. They desperately need your solution but you haven’t been able to get in touch, until now!
5. Hey boss, do we like saving and making money at this company? Because what we’re able to implement in our sales process after attending this event will do both.
