3 Conferences That Every Salesperson Should Attend This April 2017

Here at Social Talent, we love attending conferences all over the world! Not only does it give us the chance to network with other sales professionals, but it gives us direct insight into what’s happening within the sales world. It’s important to stay current and to stay tuned in to who’s making the most noise in our market. Conferences help you sharpen your own mindset and provide you with unique learning opportunities. Also, it’s nice to get out of the office and learn in a new environment. Sometimes you need a change of scenery and a bit of fresh air won’t do us any harm! But seriously, conferences are great to take in lots of information in a fun filled environment.

April is shaping up to be a busy month in the social selling world with plenty of major events and conferences taking place. Here’s our top 3 social selling events this month, and if you see us, be sure to say hello to our Ninjas!
