Head of Sales Enablement at Cegid
I don't build products, nor do I sell them, so what do I do? Most often, I find myself at the intersection of sales, human resources, IT and marketing. The role is ambiguous and that’s where the fun is. Even though I don’t sell in the literal sense anymore, I spend a lot of time selling in the broader sense (convincing others) to add value in every customer interaction and increase predictable sales results.
