Question of the Week: How Do You Increase Meeting Attendance Rates?

Meetings are a necessary part of any company’s business model. As a leader, you depend on feedback and information from various departments to inform the road ahead. You set time aside, you send out your meeting invites, but only a handful of those summoned turn up.

Question of the Week: How Do You Include Events in Your Sales Strategy?

Welcome to the first in our “Question of the Week” series of blog posts where we will address some of the most common issues sales teams deal with on a daily basis. We welcome your questions and comments, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you have anything to add.

What is GDPR and Why is it Such a Big Deal?

The GDPR rolled out in May of 2018, riding in on a tsunami of compliance solutions designed to help companies avoid some pretty scary fines and penalties should they fail to protect their European customers’ data appropriately.

At almost a year in, the dust has finally settled. If managed appropriately, the GDPR is not much scarier than a sock puppet.

Still not entirely clear on what the GDPR is and why you should care? Read on.
