Announcing the First Wave of Speakers for Unleash '20!
The leading sales engagement conference, Unleash, is happening again this year April 7-9 in San Diego!
You know that we always pull out the stops for this annual event, but this year promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
Read on to see who’s presenting, what’s happening, and why we’re so stoked for Unleash ‘20!
Motivational speaker, former lieutenant in the U.S. Navy
As the first woman pilot to fly the F-14 Tomcat in the U.S. Navy, Carey Lohrenz knows the code to fearless leadership, exceeding expectations, and smashing glass ceilings.
Since leaving the Navy, Carey has applied her expertise and experience in the military to help business leaders share how they can similarly succeed in fast-paced and dynamic environments. At Unleash, Carey will be sharing lessons in leadership and performance that will help you execute your processes with military precision. You can pick up a copy of her book, Fearless Leadership, beforehand and come prepared with questions.
Vice President-Worldwide Commercial Sales and Business Development at Amazon Web Services (AWS)
It takes a lot of chutzpah to lead global sales and business development at the world’s largest cloud service provider, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and VP Mike Clayville is ready to share it with you. Before AWS, Mike worked for decades leading teams and building revenue for various notable tech companies, including 8+ years as VMware’s VP of operations, sales, and product marketing.
Mike will be sharing his leading strategies and insights to advance your team’s outcomes and alignment. But don’t take it from us, take it from his recommendations on LinkedIn:
- “Mike is a sales visionary with an amazing ability to inspire every one of his sales teams to achieve more than they thought possible.”
- “He implemented quality process and strategy which ensured success and quota attainment to his team in the field.”
Founder & CEO of Zoom Video Communications
One the tech world’s biggest moments last year was Zoom’s IPO in April: shares jumped 72% on opening day, putting the company's valuation at nearly $16 billion and making Eric Yuan a billionaire overnight.
Eric is a first-generation immigrant and the first person-of-color to top Glassdoor’s best-rated CEOs. According to Forbes, his commitment to video communications stems from his long-distance relationship in college with his then-girlfriend, now-wife (cue collective awww). Though the market was already crowded when he started Zoom in 2011, he stuck by his product because he believed he could make it better and more user-friendly than the competition, and his bet paid off. Zoom is now one of the über-rare profitable tech unicorns, and we can’t wait to hear what lessons Eric will share with us.
