In today’s bonus episode of I wanted to share a bit of a preview of this year’s Sales Success Summit. At this point, I’ve got about 70% of the agenda figured out, which is even more than it sounds like because I try to keep 15-20% of it undefined so we can be flexible in the moment and either go deeper into a particular topic that people are interested in, or explore something important that comes up that we don’t already have accounted for in the scheduled talks. So I’ll really only be adding 2-3 more scheduled speakers.
While I continue to work on that, let me tell you about what we do have set up so far and if you’ll click over to top1.fm/2021preview I’ll have all of these details in addition to links to each presenter’s episode as well so you can go even deeper in your preparation for the event itself on October 11th and 12th.
Now, this isn’t necessarily in order, but here’s who you’ll be hearing from so far:
Sarah Brazier is going to talk about “Life After SDR: Building for Tomorrow, her Career Narrative”
Katie Jane Bailey is going to dig into a core theme in this community and will talk about “Iron Sharpening Iron”
Ian Koniak and I have been talking for a while about him presenting on “You Are Not Your Number”
Irfan Jafar from VMware will cover “Closing Big Deals with a Winning Mentality,” and I know he’s coming off of a recent 8 figure deal that he brought in at the end of his last quarter.
We’ve got a really dynamic duo lined up with David Weiss & Jack Wilson who will talk about “Building a World-Class Sales Team” both from the perspective of the leader of that team and a top player on the team.
My friend DeJuan Brown will be back to share a process he has that absolutely fascinated me. His talk is titled: “Managing Up: Collaborating WITH Your Leadership”
Constantine Johns will help us explore “The Leader Within”
Jenn Zhou who you just heard on the show last week is going to bring us: “Winning in Sales or Life: Have Confidence. Have Fun. Have Self Respect”
and last but certainly not least, Brandon Fluharty is going to speak on “7 Steps to Earning 7 Figures”
Like I said, there’s more to come, but I couldn’t be more excited about how strong this content is going to be.
Now if you’re planning to join us here in Austin to be part of this experience and you don’t already have your ticket, please hurry. There aren’t many left, and rather than covering it here, if you’d like to know more about how we’re working to provide as safe an environment as we possibly can with the goal of essentially creating our own mini-bubble around the event, just send me a note and ask for the Summit Safety video that I included in last week’s newsletter. Thanks to Vidyard, sending that your way is just two quick clicks for me.
If you’re not able to join us in person, thanks to our incredible sponsors: QuotaPath, Skipio, Proposify, Outreach, Gong, and Vidyard you can sign up for the live stream for free. In either scenario, you can grab your ticket or register for the live stream at Top1Summit.com
I’m also working with those sponsors to collectively make a contribution to our non-profit partner – UNCrushed for each and every person who signs up to join us. So do me a favor and encourage your entire team and everybody you know to get registered. There’s going to be a great opportunity to do some good in support of mental health, and certainly do some good for yourself in improving your own mindset, and inspiring you to rise to greatness.
There’s a ton more that we’re building in for those who will be joining us here in Austin, from an outdoor BBQ experience at one of my favorite spots in town to a red carpet-themed afterparty where I think the dress code can best be described as faux fancy. We’re even printing custom jerseys for every attendee to go with our theme of world-class sales teams.
Come join us. If not in-person, then definitely on the live stream. Be sure to block some time on October 11th and 12th. The core content will run from 10 am to 4 pm Central Time, and you can get registered at Top1Summit.com That’s T-O-P the Number One, Summit (with two m’s) dot com.
