August 28, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

+recruiting sales talent in Nairobi

For many companies, despite the level that you are in; the sales teams are the ultimate growth engine that makes effective hiring of sales reps tremendously important.

Infact, according to LinkedIn’s Global Recruiting Trends 2017 the sales positions are the #1 hiring priority for talent acquisition leaders.

Figuring out the right time to hire, securing the responsibilities and expectations of the sales role, and understanding how to evaluate and select the best talent can make or break your business.

And rightfully so: If you hire the wrong person, it can end up costing your company a fortune to find, hire, onboard, and train a replacement.

However, before you go in search of the perfect sales rep, you’ll want to make sure it’s the right time to hire one, whether you’re just starting to build out your sales team or you’re looking to expand the one you have.

Join us for a workshop on Wednesday, 28th August from 5.30pm at our Kilimani Office space hosted by Doris Muigei Shortlist Head of Business where she will help you best understand the hiring process and how one can put together an effective sales team.

The workshop will for the first time have a panel discussion that will feature:

  • Kris Senanu, Managing Director for the Enterprise Division at Telkom Kenya
  • Job Muriuki, Founder & CEO of Momentum Credit
  • Patricia Kihara, Head of Sales at ICEA Lion Group
  • Alice Mwalimo, Head of Sales at GlaxoSmithKline
  • Doris Muigei, Shortlist EA Head of Business and Partnerships (Moderator)

The panelists will discuss the challenges in finding, screening and retaining top sales talent so as to guide Hiring Managers and HR leadership in the quest for employing the best salespeople for their teams.

At the event, Shortlist will also be launching its latest e-book on ‘‘Hiring for entry-level sales roles’!

RSVP your attendance here and see you then!
