New for 2022!

Director of Presales and Buyer Enablement

Selling is hard. Buying is Harder - which is why my role leading the Presales and Buyer Enablement function here at Consensus is so rewarding.

We've seen more than 10 years of presales innovation happen in just 18 months, so I'm proud to champion our industry-leading successes for a new wave of B2B buyer-centric heroes.

Giving back to presales

Two Presales in a Pod - Podcast

At the time of writing, Two Presales in a Pod has published  more than 47 episodes focused on a relaxed and conversational look at everything presales.

 

As co-host with Adam Freeman, Don Carmichael and Tom Edwards, we've had guests from across the globe and have a large, engaged, growing listenership ranging from people at every part inside and outside of the profession.

 

We're open, honest (brutally sometimes) and often don't agree on things but it's our way to provide insight to all, and to give back what we've learned to this wonderful people of this presales world.

Leading the conversation

Global Presales Leaders Forum

In 2018 Don Carmichael and I chatted about the lack of an open forum for discussing the ups, downs and general goings on within the presales leadership world. Now, 4 years later we've seen the regular in-person meet ups change to virtual events but the concept remains the same - Chatham House Rules means we can talk about topics in an open way, clearly understanding it's not recorded.

We've grown during covid too, with the virtual meetings very well attended and a plethora of topics covered collaboratively.

It's always free, and you're welcome to join - drop me a message on LinkedIn for more info.
