In this edition of the Predictable Revenue podcast, host Collin Stewart (flying solo) welcomes Kent Venook, Senior Director of Sales Development at Talkdesk, a rapidly-growing call centre software company based in San Francisco.
Kent is a Bay Area sales veteran with significant team-building experience. Prior to leading business development at Talkdesk, Kent helped scale the SDR sales team at Apttus from 4 to 100 members.
In this episode, Collin and Kent do a deep dive into the ever-important world of Salesforce (a company Aaron may have heard of :) ). Collin and Kent chat about how Salesforce consistency is critical to both scaling a sales team as well as diagnosing and fixing issues in the sales funnel. Highlights include: designing and teaching SDRs how to manage the key planks of Salesforce (14:00), the balancing act and benefits of implementing sales processes (26:52), how Talkdesk tiers its accounts (33:03), and Talkdesk’s lofty quotas (41:10).
