Go-to-Market Forum: Maintaining Alignment Through Rapid Growth

Interested in attending?

This is an invite-only event. Please fill out the form below and we will be in touch.

There is nothing more important to a company’s go-to-market strategy than tight alignment between Sales & Marketing. This year we are trying something different and encouraging this collaboration through a joint forum. Bring your counterpart and spend the day with us learning from industry leading experts, networking with peers and uncovering the secrets of a successful sales & marketing partnership.

Topics include:

  • Keynote: JetBlue’s Head of Marketing on How Customer Feedback Has Shaped Their Strategy
  • Workshop: Account Based Everything – CMO, Engagio
  • Panel: The Great SDR Debate: Sales or Marketing?

See below for the full agenda.

For questions or additional information, please contact Ashley Minogue,

P.S. In true OpenView fashion, you can expect to make some great connections not only during the Forum, but also over cocktails on our roof deck.
