We asked Rebecca Corliss, Hubspot’s Director of Marketing, to say a few words on the importance of our “20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management” recognition program.  She said, "It's so important to shine a spotlight on the success being driven by female leaders across sales and marketing today. These women are a source of inspiration and encouragement for everyone in the field, and I love what SLMA is doing to bring attention to their fantastic accomplishments."

At the SLMA we believe that marketing is the revenue engine that drives growth and wealth.  This means women, who unarguably hold the majority of the management roles in marketing, are the majority generators of this wealth.  To recognize them, for five years we have hosted the “20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management.”   We applaud Rebecca's sage thoughts and we hope the program spotlights the accomplishments of women in sales and marketing. 

Why it Matters: 

"Women, who unarguably hold the majority of the management roles in marketing, are the majority generators of this wealth."

It has puzzled Susan Finch our web director and myself why women appear to be so humble and avoid the spotlight for their accomplishments.  There has been a lot in the general press of late about corporate leaders saying generally stupid comments about the women in their companies who create so much prosperity for them.   Go figure.

Jeanne Hopkins, Sr. VP and CMO of Continuum Managed Services, LLC, said “Tina Fey once said ‘You’re not in competition with other women. You’re in competition with everyone.’ That alone is one reason that being part of the Top 20 Women in Sales Lead Management is so critical to your business success. I know, from experience, that companies are proud of the nominees and being selected is one more validation that you are a revenue producer for your firm.”

“Recognizing top women in sales lead management is essential,” said Jill Konrath, author of SNAP Selling and Selling to Big Companies . “I strongly encourage everyone to submit the names of their creative, hard-working female colleagues who strive every day to increase the quantity and quality of leads coming into their companies.”

Walt Whitman said, “If you’ve done it, it ain’t bragging,” so tell us what you’ve done. Nominees are judged on their contributions to marketing, sales and sales lead management efforts. Credentials, such as board positions, book and article authorships, and speaking on behalf of the subjects of sales lead management and marketing ROI, are taken into account. This program is not a popularity contest.
