Welcome to Public Sector Sales!

Hello and welcome to the Public Sector Sales community!

 

Whether you've done business with the public sector for a long time or are brand new to it, the best of us always keep learning. 

 

Since many of us haven’t met before, I’d love to get to know everyone here and hear your thoughts on what topics you’d like to see covered to better gear our content! If you’d comment on this thread with a quick “Hi, This is me, this is where I work and here’s what I’d like to hear more about in the world of public sector go-to-market that would make my job easier and better.” 

 

Looking forward to hearing from everyone and being on this journey together! Let me know if I can be of any help along the way. 

 

Looking forward to empowering the profession of sales on this platform!
