    We’ve created 5 blocks so that every role on the B@B marketing team can benefit from the workshop from your sales lead to your data scientist.
    Lectures will run Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm.
    The benefit of attending a live workshop is not just learning in the audience, but also working with your peers and engaging directly in dialogue with experts in your field. Learn from Roundtable Discussions where you join a group of about ten marketers to have practical, educational discussions about your current challenges. Learn from one-on-one 60-minute Coaching Clinics where you can get your specific questions answered by industry experts.

We believe that the best way for founders to learn sales is through collaboration, with a little guidance from experienced sales leaders.
