If you know SalesLoft, you’ve probably heard about REV2020, our annual conference about where sales is going. It’s coming up fast in March. If this is the first you’re hearing about REV2020 (formerly Rainmaker), then RUN, don’t walk, to rev2020.salesloft.com.
In case you’re not convinced this event is worth your while, this post is for you. Here are five parts of REV2020 you don’t want to miss.
1. Spike Lee
Author. Writer. Actor. Director. Masterclass teacher. Oscar winner. All-around legendary storyteller. The great Spike Lee is REV2020’s keynote speaker.
We love that Spike is authentic and brave. Beyond brave, he’s bold. He’s not afraid to be controversial or tackle thorny issues. And he tells provocative stories that challenge cultural assumptions about race, class, and social injustice. SalesLoft CEO Kyle Porter says,
Spike Lee has opened my eyes to concepts and realities I never knew prior to watching his films. It’s the job of great revenue professionals to open the buyer’s eyes to new concepts and realities they never knew.
Telling stories in an impactful, authentic way is key to succeeding in sales. So, we think our audience will love Spike because he represents exactly what REV2020 is about: bold, powerful, transformative, inspiring, and connected experiences.
2. Hey Salespeople LIVE
With 64 released episodes and 50k downloads in over 10 countries, the Hey Salespeople podcast is on fire. Join our favorite sales nerd, Jeremey Donovan, SalesLoft’s VP of Sales Strategy, for a special live edition of the show. Jeremey interviews the brightest minds in modern sales to bring you immediately actionable advice at REV2020. We’ll record a mix of new and best-of sessions onsite — grab your front row seat!
3. The Pitch
Think of your best pitch ever. You wowed the client. You won the deal. You got the bonus. Take that experience and cross it with American Idol-style judging (including a Simon) and you have The Pitch. Anyone in a sales role attending REV2020 can submit an audition — and we hope you do! Last year’s winner got a promotion. Could YOU be this year’s winner?
