CHAMPIONS OF THE SALES INNOVATION WORLD!

All those that work within a sales environment know that sales people ALWAYS want to win - and those nominated for this year's Sales Innovation Awards were no exception.

These awards salute the very best in sales technology and service and feature a collection of accolades recognising the dynamic innovation and high-tech results that are currently being delivered within this ever-changing sector.

Our six judges are major key players within the sales world and are all instrumental in the success of some of the world's biggest brands and businesses. Seema Menon, Director Of Sales for Sony, was giving his views on the nominees alongside Sonya Batchelor, who is Sales Director for global oil brand BP. As you can imagine, the nominees maybe felt more than a tiny bit of pressure as they pitched their services to such massive names!

As the winners were read out by our partners AdRoll there was a massive roar of cheers from the crowd and congratulations being given all-round.
