I recently attended the Inside Sales Virtual Summit and I learned new ways of doing things. I also downloaded lots of free ebooks. The Summit ran for seven hours and featured 5 keynotes speakers and seven tracks of sales topics, capturing the best thinking on sales from 62 experts including bestselling authors, Fortune 500 executives and industry leaders.
Below is the list of selected presentation I have watched live and you can also watch the recorded version for free.
