This is the fifth year for the recognition program.
Only SLMA members (membership is free) are allowed to nominate women and from those nominations, twenty will be selected as the SLMA 20 Women to Watch in 2015. Winners, chosen by a panel of independent judges, will be announced on Tuesday, April 1, 2015 at 10 a.m. PST.
Why it's improtant
“The SLMA would like to acknowledge women who contribute to the field of sales lead management and marketing. Those creating the greatest wealth for their companies are the women in marketing and technology who, we believe, too often do not get the credit they deserve. Each year this program addresses that oversight by shining a spotlight on the women who are builders of wealth.”
Richard Brock, CEO of Sales Talk Technologies, said “I commend all who are nominated for this prestigious award. All of us in the industry recognize and applaud the strong leadership and vision that the SLMA Top 20 women contribute to this fast-paced and competitive industry.”
Erika Goldwater, Vice President of Marketing for ANNUITAS, commented “There are many amazing women in sales and marketing leadership today, transforming the industry and the ways we view leadership. Take the time to nominate one of the colleagues you admire and help them achieve recognition for their accomplishments. As women, we don’t acknowledge ourselves as much as we should for our achievements – SLMA helps us address this.”
Nominees are judged on their contributions to marketing, sales and sales lead management efforts. Credentials such as book and article authorships, board positions, and speaking on behalf of the subjects of sales lead management and marketing ROI, are taken into account. This program is not a popularity contest.
