The group engaged on their ways of working, key principles, and business rhythms, highlighting learnings that can be transferred across companies. Topics of discussion included managing and motivating high-performing sales teams, strategically aligning digital marketing and sales engines, ways to leverage sales data and metrics, and the importance of integrating strategic acquisitions.
