I recently choice to step out of management (after only 8 months, but what an 8 months!) and into a technical sales support role - what my company calls a systems architect. I see it as a growth opportunity and a "resume-padder" - and my mgmt chain and mentors agree it is a good move. My intention is get client-facing experience and more technical and business knowledge across more of my company's brands, then bring that back to a management roles - and eventually an executive role!
The main point of my post is to ask the MT community if anyone knows of a podcast for sales and sales support personnel -- more specifically technical sales support.
There are plenty of sales podcasts out there but they all seem to be for used car salesmen and Amway people. Full of bluster, platitudes, simple-minded advice, etc.
I hope to find a podcast that will help me in my new career/path that is at the level of MT.
I find MT to be extremely listenable. Many podcasts lose my attention even if I am listening to them during my commute. MT is engaging and, dare I say, riveting.
I doubt I'll find something as good but I know the smart people that read this forum will point me in the right direction.
