What You Will do:
  • Flex previous knowledge and build new expertise in researching provocative and pragmatic approaches to optimizing B2B sales performance.
  • Provide high-level and transferable guidance around topics including leading the overall sales function, charting and adapting sales strategy, determining the ideal sales org design, coverage, and deployment plan, and leading the sales operations function.
  • Speak to both the strategic and tactical needs of sales and sales operations leaders across a variety of sectors and within a range of large and mid-sized enterprises.
  • Develop and write in-depth reports that demonstrate a mastery of best practices and strategies to guide decision-making in sales and sales operations management.
  • Publish research notes for sales audiences that are topical and timely, based on real company experiences, and grounded in data where available to generate client readership and interactions.
  • Conduct compelling advisory interactions with clients and prospects via a range of delivery formats (including live and virtual events, conference or video calls, strategy sessions and formal presentations) to address trends, answer common questions and disseminate best practices.
  • Prepare and deliver presentations at Gartner, industry and professional association conferences. Collaborate across research groups to ensure presentations and messages comprehensively represent our thought leadership.
  • Support Gartner's commercial and service teams in retaining and growing client relationships through effective service delivery and prospect interactions as a subject matter expert.


What You Will Need
  • Minimum of 10 years of experience working in sales, sales operations, or commercial functions, ideally in a leadership capacity. Must have an in-depth knowledge of B2B sales with degrees of fluency in topics such as developing the overarching sales or sales operations strategy, improving commercial execution and frontline productivity, developing and enhancing sales analytics, sales compensation, driving effective collaboration with cross-functional commercial colleagues (e.g., marketing, customer service, product, etc.) and more.
  • A strong understanding of the sales function and the needs of sales, revenue, and commercial leaders with the ability to link best practices back to their functional business goals.
  • Experience publishing written content that challenges commonly held beliefs and inspires action.
  • Experience engaging with senior executives (especially commercial leaders) in one-on-one and small group interactions to support achievement of strategic goals
  • Openness to constructive feedback and comfort presenting and defending your analysis.
  • Excellent written, verbal and presentation skills. Written work must be concise and persuasive.
