10 Inspirational Leaders in Software and Web Applications

In many cases these are the most vocal and often times the most inspirational leaders in the sales lead management community.  Maybe it's because they have the most to win by being speakers and teachers, book authors and  bloggers.    

Maybe  it's the nature of their profession that they inquire and search for truths in sales lead management.   The word inspiration comes from the Latin word "inspirare" which means "to breath into"  to "excite" and "inflame." Regardless, we are pleased with their contributions and we expect that they will continue to inflame, excite and inspire us all,  because of all people they know sales lead management is revenue management.   Tweet-winners-software-all

Ten Inspirational Leaders in Lead Generation

Without sales lead generation, aka, demand creation, sales productivity will plummet, forecasts will be useless, inventory will sit on shelves, and corporate earnings statements will crash, all because someone decided salespeople should be able to find prospects and customers without marketing.  It happens everyday when a company president decides to cut marketing which is the same as cutting his own throat.  

We are grateful that these innovative and inspirational leaders not only create wealth for their company and clients, but go into the marketplace and teach others how to do it efficiently.  Please let these winners, and those nominated for this award know that you appreciate their leadership.    View the winner's video here.    View the complete profiles of everyone here
