If you're a rainmaker, you can write your own check in the NYC technology & digital media world.  Cash is king for both startups and big companies alike.  Knowing how to sell media and technology requires both excellent interpersonal skills and also a sharp knowledge of the product, not to mention a constant eye on the innovation landscape.

This event is for *full time sales professionals only*.

We'll be talking about insider tips and strategies on what it takes to take your game up another level, as well as about the overall NYC sales environment.  We've assembling some of the Big Apple's best tech and digital media sales talent for a very interactive discussion that every new and accomplished sales professional in tech should attend.
