What is the most challenging task you find while working on your daily activities?

  • Managing expectations in both directions
  • Connecting business vision with tech capability

What was the most challenging negotiation you handle? and how?

  • Any re-negotiation of a contract….
  • A recent example is when we completely re-did our commercial structure here at Scout
  • It worked but not without resistance

What are your favourite Sales books?

  • Not much books focused on sales – however other books apply to many things in life, including sales
  • One such example = Thinking fast & slow(nobel prize winner & economist Daniel Kahnemann)  
  • We think we are rationale but spend most time making fast decisions(Two systems! gut feeling vs “analysis”)
  • Understanding our natural biases helps you both influence your own and others towards a desirable outcome

“Be curious, listen, be helpful, be honest, think long-term (“you always meet twice”!)”
