Over the years, the term “Inside Sales” has been used to mean many different things: telemarketing, order taking, lead generation, appointment setting, customer/sales support, strategic sales, inbound closers, etc. But in many of today’s fastest growing companies, Inside Sales is proving to be a powerful strategic engine to drive growth – one that’s relied upon by the entire revenue organization from Marketing, to Sales, to Customer Retention!
In this TIGER Talk, our presenter Ed Porter will show how organizations are able to significantly enhance their go-to-market (GTM) strategies, test new markets and products, and realize significant profitability gains by leveraging inside sales practices supported by modern technology tools. Whether to amplify a field organization or create an entirely new sales organization, a serious Inside Sales function can help you grow your business more profitability and efficiently.
Ed Porter began his professional management career in 2001 and has since led teams from 5 to over 1,000 people with responsibilities for Sales, Customer Experience, and Marketing functions. Ed has worked for service, software, and distribution companies, learning the foundations of delivering a powerful customer experience while driving value and effectiveness in the sales and development channels.

Ed has been a keynote speaker and guest speaker focused on sales strategy and customer management programs.
