"Leads are for Closers": Engineering Shortcuts in the Sales Cycle

Adam Bleifeld

Adam Bleifeld, SVP of Sales at Cognizant Softvision, hosts a night of dinner, drinks, and great conversation focused on closing leads faster.

Just because it's complicated, though, doesn't mean we can't find ways to shorten sales cycles. Join other sales executives to exchange insights, experience, and techniques for creating a shorter sales closer.
