Can the principles of Lean Startup – release quickly, test with real customers, measure and iterate – be applied to sales and marketing?
Join us at our next event on Monday 21st October when we’ll be exploring this idea with speakers from HubSpot, Websand and Lean Sales Panel.
This is a great opportunity for anyone working in sales and marketing to find out more about Lean Startup and how it’s being applied to the industry and anyone working in a startup to find out how they can fire up their sales and marketing. We’ll also be eating pizza.
