Frequently Asked Questions

When is the Summit?

Monday, December 9, through Friday, December 13, starting at 11am Eastern Standard Time.

Free? Really? You could easily charge for this much content.

Yeah, we know. But honestly, our goal was to give you an amazing week. Period.

It just got a little out of hand.

Let me explain…

Several months ago, we heard December 13 is National Salesperson’s Day. We weren’t able to confirm that, but we thought it was a good idea anyway, so we decided to celebrate.

Our first thought was to publish a motivational blog post or two. Lame! What kind of a celebration is that?

Then we thought we’d do a few extra webinars. But before we knew it, we had more than a few speakers lined up, which made a virtual event kind of a no-brainer.

Still, what’s the catch?

No catch! Our goal is to celebrate YOU and to give you smart tips and tactics to start the new year right.

We’re excited that so many sales leaders wanted to be a part of this amazing event. Making it free is just part of our mission — to support the B2B sales community and help you succeed.

Do I need to attend each presentation in real time?

No, once you’ve registered, you can access the information at your leisure. If you’ve got work to do, that’s fine. We’ll be here when you’ve got time to focus.

Will you send me reminders, so I don’t miss anything?

Yes, when you register, you’ll give us your email. We’ll send reminders and updates to that email address, so you won’t miss a thing.

Be aware, you’ll also be subscribed to our newsletter, which keeps you updated on blog posts, podcasts, and webinars that will help you stay on top of all things B2B Sales.
