One of my former Sales Execs (and a close personal friend) called his SE's and SA's the "Tip of the Spear". You know who you are. You know what you're worth. You know these sales people (I'm now one of them) couldn't go very far without your hard work, dedication, patience, technical prowess, flexibility and attention to detail. After mentoring a few of the best SE's (IMHO) in the NY Metro area, I decided to start a group where we will meet monthly, drown a few, tell all of our greatest stories, help each other out - 50% therapy session, 50% networking session, 100% worth it - in the hopes of gaining traction and uplifting an exceptionally talented community of technology professionals that are the lifeblood of every technology service provider, vendor and enterprise.
