Why we organize this events?
In Dublin we have a huge amount of startups and big multinationals like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, PayPal and many others. This is a networking community of Sales/Marketing Professionals and Leaders interested in using technology and data science to improve business results. We believe that tech companies have to radically change and adopt new sales approaches in order to satisfy the growing demands and expectations of consumers in our digital age. Therefore it is necessary to constantly measure, evaluate and improve efficiency and effectiveness of their sales efforts. This community facilitates networking, ideas sharing and provides the opportunity to exchange real life tech sales experiences. We meet once a month in Dublin and bring engaging speakers to share their experiences and insights in using technology to improve sales results. Come join us to share, network, and learn!
