Today I’ve got a quick update on our upcoming Basecamp event. This was originally scheduled for May 9th and was meant to be kind of a Sales Success Summit light. A single-day event with a whole series of really actionable, shorter presentations from the top sellers that you’ve heard here on this show. I won’t go into the gory details, but some things happened that caused me to rethink that approach and I’m super excited about how we’ve pivoted. We’ll be taking that originally planned content and will be doing a day-long webinar series in collaboration with Sales Hacker on June 9th. We don’t quite have the landing page up for that, but if you go to top1.fm and join the listener list you’ll be one of the first to have the opportunity to sign-up.
The bigger pivot is with the core event. As I talked about at the beginning of the year, I’ve wanted to lean more into the value of the community this year and I’ve decided to make the event a way more intimate experience. We’ve also moved the dates to May 22nd and 23rd and my tagline for the event is No Presentations… All Conversations, which is kind of funny because not only is this relevant for the community, but it could also be used to largely describe my own sales approach, but I digress.
We still have maybe a dozen spots available as I record this and the only way to get a ticket is to purchase an All Access Pass which also includes your ticket to the Sales Success Summit in October. The details are at top1.fm/2023 and the sign-up link is at the bottom of that page. There’s even a monthly payment option which would technically allow you to attend for a laughable up-front investment prior to our coming together in a few short weeks.
Here’s a bit more about what to expect if you’re considering joining us. We’ll come together late Monday afternoon on the 22nd at this boutique hotel in downtown Austin where many of those attending will also be staying, so talk about immersive. That evening we actually will have 1 presentation and a happy hour that we’ll open up to the public because Lisa Palmer, the star of episode 100 here on the podcast literally just finished defending her thesis and will be getting her PhD in Artificial Intelligence. She’s going to talk about AI from a more complex sales perspective in her presentation: From Human to Hybrid: 10 Ways to Use AI Today to Crush Your Number. After that’s all done, we’ll kick out the public and let the real experience begin.
We’ll go all day and night on Tuesday the 23rd with a half dozen facilitated conversations ranging from Executive Presence, to Leveraging AI and ChatGPT to Partner and CoSelling to Managing Your Sales Career with plenty of space and fun for everyone to make more meaningful connections while enjoying some great Austin food.
Something tells me we’re going to end up spending a lot of time on the rooftop lounge with an epic view of downtown Austin until rather late before we’re all forced to head home and get back to work Wednesday morning.
Again, if you’re thinking of joining us, space is super limited and there are only a handful of seats left, so grab your All Access Pass now at top1.fm/2023, or feel free to send me a message on LinkedIn if I can help answer any questions.
Thanks for listening!
