  • Post-events, promptly input all leads and notes into the CRM, prioritize the hottest leads for immediate follow-up within 1-2 days, and develop customized nurture campaigns for colder leads.
  • Deliver compelling value propositions.
  • Network with attendees, collect leads and gather contact information for follow-up.
  • Build relationships with key decision-makers and influencers within the industry.
  • Stay up-to-date on industry trends, competitor activities, and customer needs.
  • Collaborate with the RevGen team to develop engaging event materials and promotions.
  • Manage lead tracking and follow-up processes to generate sales-qualified leads.
  • Maintain CRM completely up-to-date.
  • Achieve monthly/quarterly lead generation and sales quotas.


  • 4+ years of experience in sales, account management, or a similar role (event marketing experience is a plus).
  • Excellent communication, presentation, and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong networking abilities and a talent for building relationships.
  • Proficiency in using CRM software and lead management tools.
  • Self-motivated, competitive, and target-driven mindset.
  • Knowledge of the company's products/services and industry landscape.
  • Hunter mentality, results-driven, and growth mindset.
  • Willingness to travel frequently for events and conferences, as required to generate required sales-qualified leads.


  • Bachelor's degree in Business, Marketing, or a related field.
  • Experience with CRMs such as HubSpot or Salesforce, sales automation tools, Zoom Info, Confluence, Asana, and others.
  • Highly personable with a strong ability to deliver to executive decision-makers. 
  • Ability to build strong client relationships.
