How many field/outbound sales and/or consultants are back traveling

Hey Folks,


I'm keen to get a feel for how many are back out on the road already. My team is fully vaxed (opinions aside) and is champing at the bit to meet with clients/prospects that are also open to meeting.


What's the pulse-like at everyone's company, and are you having to jump through hoops for travel approval?

Yup. Technically we can travel but it's such a massive pain in the ass it's not worth it yet.

Iโ€™ve been out in the field doing prospecting drops since April and have been approved for in office/in person meetings since last month. My leadership has been encouraging it for anyone whoโ€™s comfortable. Iโ€™ve found that the cold call/email burnout is real for most of my prospects and decision makers have been much more receptive to scheduling a meeting when I stop by with a small gift.

I have been an individual contributor for a couple of years now, when do you think someone is ready to become a Sales Manager? (any attributes, accomplishments etc. that would recommend you have)

Since pandemic pushing everyone to wfh, many people are of the opinion that all aspects of businesses (at least for software) can be done remotely. How many of you still believe that persona touch goes a long way to close a sales deal?
