Gong on Gong: Unlocking a New Strategic Dataset for Revenue Growth

In the dynamic landscape of B2B sales, the success of strategic initiatives, such as revamped messaging or novel GTM motions, can either propel key business metrics or falter. Surprisingly, McKinsey reports a 70% failure rate for such transformations. Waiting through entire sales cycles before witnessing outcomes hampers real-time adaptation. The consequence: valuable time, revenue, and productivity lost.

In this session, we’ll explore a range of compelling use cases where Gong used its own product to improve sales effectiveness – including increased conversation rates through revamped messaging and more nuanced marketing intelligence. We’ll unveil how Gong was able to measure what is typically unmeasurable with access to a strategic new dataset.

The Art of Quality Sales Engagement Using AI

Navigating the challenges of creating pipeline and closing deals has grown increasingly complex. Reps across various roles are now being tasked with prospecting and have settled with sales engagement solutions that incentivize ineffective spray-and-pray tactics. Gong Labs reveals an astonishing 88% of sales leaders are not happy with their current tools. Despite buyer expectations for personalization, current solutions fall short.

Join us to gain insights from prominent sales leaders on creating impactful engagement and multi-threading strategies. Discover how Gong Engage, our newest solution, reimagines sales engagement through AI, enabling sales leaders to personalize interactions, build stronger relationships that drive leads, and get to closed-won faster.

From Prediction to Action: Bridging the Trust Gap in AI Forecasting

With today’s economic uncertainty causing fluctuations in close rates and pipeline, organizations are increasingly evaluating AI solutions to create forecast predictions and pressure test their call. But, one of the biggest barriers preventing organizations from fully adopting AI into their decision-making processes is a lack of trust. 

Join this session to understand how Gong is ushering in the next wave of innovation in AI-powered forecasting. You’ll learn our approach to delivering next-level trust, accuracy, and actionability. And, you’ll hear first-hand from customers who have adopted Gong Forecast to instill confidence at every level, from their sellers to their C-Suite.

Consolidate and Automate: A Playbook for Increased Team Productivity

The implementation of new technology aims to enable and empower teams, but tool proliferation has had the opposite effect on productivity. According to Forrester, 66% of reps say they’re drowning in tools. Many revenue leaders are turning to tech stack consolidation, workflow automation, and AI as painkillers. 

Join Eric Bauer, VP of Sales Strategy & Effectiveness at Rapid7, and Gong’s Chief Product Officer, Eilon Reshef, to learn how to tackle productivity concerns and how Gong brings selling teams together in one AI-driven platform. In addition to learning about our platform strategy, get a sneak peek into exciting roadmap items that increase productivity and collaboration across key revenue processes like prospecting, pipeline management, forecasting, and more.
