"Stephen is an incredible leader with a wealth of experience in technical sales and pre-sales. I had the chance to attend his SE Leadership Workshop in March 2019 and I'm glad I did. The workshop was highly valuable and well worth the 3 days spent away from my team. The content was comprehensive of everything a pre-sales leader should be thinking about such as metrics, operational processes, organizational structure, recruiting, etc. Through the content and discussions with other leaders I was able to come up with several ideas and actionable steps to implement in my pre-sales business. For example, I recognized the need for a better process to capture the SE's perspective of the forecast (by opportunity) to report up the sales management chain. The workshop provided me with tactical ideas for how to go about implementing this type of process. The workshop was also a great way for me to benchmark the maturity of my current operation to know where I'm doing well relative to my peer group, and where I need to improve. I look forward to being able to learn from, and partner with, Stephen as part of this growing pre-sales/SE community."
