As our series of round-table workshop webinars gets underway, we felt the need for an umbrella page, or helicopter view, from where we could manage and link to them and the related discussions, blogs, events and so on.
There are quite a scary number of feed-in Groups and people getting involved to help with all of this, for example in our own LinkedIn Group asking "Is Selling Manipulation?", but also across the spectrum of other LinkedIn Groups, like ex-Dragon James Caan's
Webrecruit Group for those hoping to "Transform Career Possibilities in Selling & Sales Management" or in the very popular UK Marketing Lounge, the ISMM Group and many others besides. (And a warm welcome to you any of you that may be).
LeadFormix also have substantial networks built around the Marketing Automation and Integration with Selling angles, and their UK Re-Seller Peter Johnston - himself playing a lead coordinating role (thank you Peter) has just summed-up a bit more of the crowdsourcing and topics arising in a blog titled "Is Sales Dying? And what can YOU do about it?".
The lead-off event is Bring Out Your Dead, and you can see some of the "crowd" commenting and contributing there (and that Peter has thanked on his blog) assembled around this page and sourced from all
over, as above. There are over 100 people already directly involved though, and the total "crowd-source" is indeed in the thousands, if not tens of thousands.
We'd be delighted to use YOUR comments and questions in the panels below to link to any other people, discussions, events, problems and solutions that come up.
Next up is The Buyer's Tale (12-1pm Wednesday 22 June), and I'll link as soon as I can to that, either by "editing" this panel or posting below, but fire away if you have any further items (and login with LinkedIn to make that all so much easier)...
