Sales Women To Watch In 2019

We are excited to share our first annual Sales Women to Watch. The idea for this list came after having conversation after conversation with amazing females sales professionals who were leading their teams, leading their companies, or leading women in their industry. These are women who embodied our values of being trail blazers, risk takers, people developers, and esteem builders and we wanted to shine the spotlight on them.

Interested in joining a community of women like this? Join us! Subscribe to take in touch and be the first to get announcements and learn how you can participate in the #GirlsClub program as a protege, mentor, or thought leader.
