Dear net4tec community,

Knowledge transfer at its best with Urszula Stefanowicz and Hanna Kamijo

Sales as your career accelerator.

Take advantage of women’s strengths and develop your passion for sales.


According to Harvard Business Review women are the future of B2B sales (Source HBR, 2020). The evidence shows women outperform men in B2B sales. Moreover, the changes created by Covid-19 favor women in sales environment even more, especially due to women’s strengths such as empathy, active listening, customer orientation and strong collaboration skills. Mastering sales is a great career booster, also for tech talents. It paves the way for bigger career jumps and open new career opportunities. Nevertheless, women are underrepresented in B2B sales in most industries, especially in Europe. Poor image, such as highly competitive, male-dominated environment, scares off many potential candidates.

However, there are many great companies and healthy sales environments out there. How do you find them and how do you use your sales skills as a career accelerator in sales?

Key Learnings & Take Aways

In our session we discuss how the sales world is transforming, why women can especially benefit from it and how to discover sales as a career without bending but using your own strengths like empathy and team play. If you are seeking lateral moves or career changes this session is for you!

We share our hands-on experience on:

  • What are the top skills for a career in sales nowadays?
  • How do you develop your passion for sales and accelerate your career?
  • What could you as a leader do, to recruit and win more women for your sales team?
