Maddie and I attended Rock Your Revenue on Thursday 7th of June.
Rock Your Revenue was a networking event, primarily about sales and the tips to improve your sales game for businesses.
The event was held at YBF Ventures on Bourke Street, a large co-working space designed for tech start-ups, investors and small businesses.
The event begun with an hour of networking and meeting like-minded individuals. Followed by a panel discussion on sales and tactics.
The three panelist were Sally McKenna, the Sales Director at HROnboard, Trent McLaren, Head of Accounting and Sales at Practice Ignition and Dean Paquola, the Sales Manager at Ento. I found Sally an interesting speaker as she spoke with more experience and had value to what she was suggesting in regards to sales tips.
The key speakers made an interesting points about being on top of your sales game. All three panelist agreed about being persistent and consistent when contacting your prospects. Touching base regularly is the key for a better conversion rate.
The type of attendees were a range of IT start ups and small business owners. Maddie and I met a range of small business owners. Most of the attendees actually had a personal relation to the key speakers and came to support their sons speak!
There was wide selection of Crust Pizza’s as well as drinks on offer which was a perfect way to end a Thursday night after work.
The event was a interesting one to attend, the catering was very good and I left feeling that I have learnt some new sales techniques. However I don’t think I will attend another event by Rock Your Revenue in the future.
