More about the talks and speakers
Talk #1 (Soft skills): A new lens, an unexpected journey in Sales
Most people think sales people are manipulative. Indeed they are! What's interesting is looking at the social sciences - understanding people (our irrationality) and eventually persuading people to say yes. Being in a startup forces me into the world of persuading people and gradually discover what "right" and responsible sales means. How do you educate with insights and influence but not manipulate? Also learning about decision making, luck and risks along the way...
