A day at Zivver

You decided to work from the office today; after your month of working from Spain you felt like seeing your colleagues again! You start with a coffee (naturally) and a quick check in with your peers.

At 10am you have a call with an exciting new prospect that you met at a recent trade show and the agenda is to go through some qualifying questions before setting up a call with the Sales team. The call went well and things are moving ahead so you update your CRM with the latest notes and schedule your next meeting. You need to rush for your 30 minute meeting with marketing to discuss a CISO roundtable event that you are supporting for some exciting new prospects. You have built a target list of accounts that you want to reach out to and invite the decision makers to the event.

After lunch with your colleagues, you have a weekly sales meeting with the team to discuss the pipeline and this quarter's new leads so you make sure to update your CRM and join the call with the team. The meeting is very positive and the team is confident they’ll hit their targets given the new influx of opportunities from yours truly.

You spend a couple of hours prospecting into new accounts. It’s been a great day and you feel energized by the results you’ve booked as you managed to secure some follow up meetings for next week. With your inbox now cleared and a clear action plan for tomorrow, it’s time to close your laptop and relax before another busy day of customer meetings tomorrow.
