The Sales Evangelist

Donald Kelly on The Sales Evangelist Podcast

You can’t keep begging for a piece of the pie; you need to bake the whole pie yourself! In today’s episode of The Sales Evangelist, Donald discusses three reasons why he baked his pie (and by that, we mean creating his own business development event.) Tune in to learn about Donald’s upcoming event to master the art of social selling!

Why create the event?

  • While Donald loves West Palm Beach, Florida, he found that existing sales meet-ups did not really pertain to B2B sellers. 
  • Wanting a place for B2B sellers to learn and grow alongside one another, Donald created his own!
  • It’s all-around business development. Whether you’re a full-cycle sales rep or a frontline seller; if you’re looking to find new strategies and tips, BusDev22 is the event for you.
  • Are you not local to Florida? Then, purchase a virtual pass to gain all the knowledge from the comfort of your home.

Donald’s three reasons to make BusDev22:

  • You can’t wait for people to do stuff for you; you have to take action. When it comes to the event, Donald wanted to make it happen. Take risks and try new things to succeed!
  • Donald saw and attended other events, but they never lived up to his expectations. He knew he wanted it to be workshops – a space to take notes, interact, and learn with others. This isn’t a college class – it’s a space to learn and apply new findings.
  • It’s something fun that helps others. If your company hasn’t quite found a way to crack the code to top-tier selling, there’s no better opportunity to learn how to get there.
