I am now a Regional Sales Manager in a small technology organization. There are 9 other folks like me (not quite :D ), around the country and I am inquiring here for a couple of reasons.
1. I used to be a Sales Manager with 8 directs. Now that I am an individual contributor (and more effective) I'd like some input on how MT site/conferences can benefit me and my peers.
2. We are positioned as the "Nordstrom" of our industry, both by us as well as by our customers. I am part of a small group of people selected to help further differentiate us from our competition. I have suggested very nice thank you notes as well as an executive gift program for some of our best customers. Any other suggestions? Anything that MT forums/site has to offer for this?
