Some of Keynote Speaker, Sarah Altman’s top accomplishments include:
Sarah Altman, Principal of Sales Ready Group, has been selling or leading sales and customer facing teams since 1992, as an inside and field rep, manager of global accounts, director of inside sales, and director of sales operations and enablement. She got her sales ‘basic training’ selling for Oracle and EMC in New York City, and then further realized the complexities, challenges and needs of successful sales organizations while working for a bunch of early stage and medium sized companies.
She launched her own sales training and consulting practice in 2008 so she could take what I’ve spent my whole career doing—selling and leading—and combine it with her passion for coaching, training and ability to help companies and people get better at selling.
Altman’s sales training is different than all other other ones on the market due to her slightly off center approach. She too is turned off by the “traditional” sales persona and is motivated by smart, thoughtful, curious, authentic sellers who understand their market, offering, buyers and the power behind having a framework and an approach that draws the buyers in instead of alienating them.
More about Sarah Altman:
Ever since graduating from college with a double major in Economics and Political Science from Macalester College and grad school with an international MBA from Thunderbird, Altman has ended up in customer facing sales roles.
Her journey has included living in Germany, San Francisco, and New York City, and now with my husband in Portland Oregon. She spends her free time practicing yoga, playing the piano, hiking, cooking, skiing and traveling to do more of the same in cool places.
