Most people in Tech sales did not start out expecting to be in sales and did not major in 'sales' in college. I started my career in the deep tech end and have worked over to the customer interfacing side over several years.

Hope everyone enjoyed Chapter 1 of the Bravado Programme this week! We are over the moon to announce more exciting content - the Bravado Mentorship Master Classes!
