About Dan Sixsmith

The effectiveness and very presence of Sales Reps in B2B organizations have been challenged dramatically over the past few years. The buying process is becoming automated and buyers have more information than ever before at their disposal. But I am here to tell you that Sales is alive and well but needs to shift its approach.
