Imagine you have found your internal "champion" who is chomping at the bit to use the shiny new thing you are selling. But your champion is a small fish in the massive sea of the big company you are trying to land. How do you take interest and usher it to a real revenue generating opportunity?
That is the topic for our panel event Managing the Enterprise Deal, where we will discuss how to build up your champion, validate the value proposition, get internal consensus, understand the buying process, and do the blocking and tacking needed to get executive buy-in.
