I would like to thank everyone who supported me over the last month in two competitions I was involved with. As a result of your support, I was selected as a member of an exclusive list, and this blog, The Pipeline was honoured as top blog.
First, I am pleased to have been selected as one of the Top 50 Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management for 2013, in the Sales Lead Management Association’s annual election. This is the second time I have made the list, 2010 was the last time. One of the great things about being on the list, is the great company it puts me in. I want to congratulate all the other people on the list, and thank James W. Obermayer, CEO of the Sales Lead Management Association, for his tireless effort year round and for running this important competition.
Meanwhile, over at Top Sales World, my blog The Pipeline, won the Gold Medal for Top Sales & Marketing Blog, in the 2013 Top Sales & Marketing Awards. The medals were awarded based 50% on votes on the Top Sales World website, and 50% on the selection of a committee of expert peers. While I have won other awards in previous years, this is special as it recognizes the work that goes into producing quality and executable content several times a week.
I want to thank the guests who have contributed to The Pipeline in 2013, my peers, the committee, Jonathan Farrington, fearless captain of Top Sales World. AND most of all those who read, comment, and voted for my blog.
