Lori Richardson will focus on how inclusion can improve culture and grow revenues in tech companies
Working in sales positions can be a pathway to leadership roles within tech companies. Currently, more males are in these positions. Author, speaker and sales strategist Lori Richardson sees sales as a great pathway to the c-suite and will be discussing this at the August New Hampshire Tech Alliance TechWomen Power Breakfast. The August Power Breakfast will be on Wednesday, August 14 from 7:30 to 9 am at the Portsmouth Country Club, 80 Country Club Lane, Greenland.
Glassdoor announced in 2018 that the new era of tech hiring is for non-tech jobs, because as tech companies grow, they inevitably need to hire robust sales and marketing teams to transform technology into revenue. Richardson will share three ways to help company leadership gain more inclusion in their sales team and also talk about how to get the word out to women that sales is an admirable profession that can be both flexible and lucrative.
“Having a diverse, well-rounded sales team is a key element to success. We’re excited to hear from Lori Richardson, who will share her substantial expertise on why women should consider a sales career and potentially leverage it as a pathway to a leadership role. We’re looking forward to hearing her speak on this important topic and how it specifically pertains to the tech sector,” said Melissa Jurkoic, chair of the TechWomen Power Breakfast Committee.
Richardson speaks to company leaders around North America on ways they can find, recruit and retain more women in sales and sales leadership roles. She is a sales strategist and founder at Score More Sales working with some of the top SaaS and tech companies like Outreach and LivePerson – and was recently named by LinkedIn as one of the “Top Sales Voices” for 2018. Her book, “She Sells – Stories from Women in Sales” has just been published.
The August 14 TechWomen Power Breakfast is sponsored by Autodesk. Tickets to the Power Breakfast are $10 for Alliance members and $20 for non-members. Tickets are available here or by calling 603.935.8951. Seating is limited, so individuals are encouraged to register early.
