Who should we highlight with a voice that isn't often heard?

Time to address the elephant in the room. Now more than ever, the world needs to embrace diversity and hear the voices of under represented communities. B2B sales has a reputation for not being particularly diverse & here at Sales Hacker we intend to lead the way in correcting that.

This is a great opportunity for our community to step up & lead by example. In your sales career, who have you learned from, has been a mentor, or is someone you look up to, that you feel hasn't gotten the recognition they deserve?

Right now, we want to focus on highlighting minorities & women. So go ahead and tag the people who come to mind in our comments and tell us a bit about why you mention them.

      Oh, man. There are so many. What’s funny is that if you just asked “who are the people in Sales I should be following for the highest quality advice”, my answer would be the same.

      The first people that come to mind for me are:
      @kd (Kevin Dorsey, VP of Sales at PatientPop)
      @beccholland (Becc Holland, Head of Sales Development at Chorus.ai)
      @tito-bohrt (CEO at Altisales)
      @morganjingram (Director of Sales Execution at JB Sales)

      Blake Hudson hasn’t joined yet, but Blake Hudson with Victory Lap out of Chicago is a MUST. I’ve gotten to know him over the past month or two and he’s been a rock: https://www.linkedin.com/in/blakehudson1/

      Some of those mentioned are heard from on a regular basis and they are great but you asked for someone who has not received the recognition they deserve yet from this community.

      In that vein I recommend Alex Alleyne. @saleslifealex. I just started following him and his tone and message are 100% on point for the NOW.

      Dene Wiley–woman of color…hard working, highly experienced inside salesperson who has both high tech IT and non high tech experience. She has always been someone who is a great sounding board for me and gives great suggestions about the job market, selling, etc. She is inspirational as a planner with her special 90 day plan that she brings to her jobs; great goal setting.
      She is CURRENTLY looking for work in inside sales remote.
      She was very successful in a job that required frequent face-to-face selling and for obvious reasons it did not work out recently. Please contact me if you hear of anything. Thanks. Joel Frankel frankel.jfrankel.joel@gmail.com

      Darryl Shazier (Enterprise Account Executive @ Jopwell) – A colleague of mine at Jopwell. Singlehandedly, he’s been a force in our organization on the sales side and his approach to clients is second to none.
