I supported the VP of U.S. Financial Services sales at SAS for more than 15 years, so I know how a sales organization operates. In 2017, we established his brand on LinkedIn and highlight his deep sales and technical expertise. In less than two years, we increased his network from 863 to more than 7k and passed a significant number of leads to our FSI teams. Personally, I had discovered my dream job. Upon being appointed Chief Sales Officer in Jan 2019, he asked me to be part of a two-person team to broaden our social selling program globally. I also continued to help him increase his LinkedIn followers to 15K+, and passed numerous opportunities to our sales teams around the world. My co-lead and I educated our sellers and customer-facing staff on -+20% of open pipeline attributed to LinkedIn engagement -+150M+ closed attributed to digital sales (Annually) -Expanded our onboarding training and refresher enablement content.

In November 2020, I was reassigned to the team executing our strategic partnership with Microsoft. Soon after joining, I integrated social messaging and practices with our sales teams. I also continued social selling sessions with teams globally to promote using LinkedIn to amplify our brand, highlight our analytics and create revenue opportunities.
