We're excited to share that we are launching our new Sales & Marketing Forum this February. Come network with your peers to discuss trending topics and issues relevant to you and your work. It's an opportunity to exchange ideas, get inspiration, share resources, and build camaraderie. The group will meet quarterly.
We're kicking off the first session of this new group with an in-person meetup at Bedrock Analytics in Oakland. This session will be a great opportunity to network with fellow sales and marketing professionals and learn about resources that can support your professional activities.
