SLMA, from Villa Park, California, recognizes sales and marketing experts, strategists, speakers, authors and consultants that have a genuine impact and influence on the industry. A team of professional researchers thoroughly examine the credentials of one hundred and fifty potential nominees, and query editors from the most popular sales resource venues for their input.
Nancy Nardin was nominated by Trish Bertuzzi, founder of The Bridge Group, whose company helps inside sales organizations make big decisions on implementation strategy, productivity & performance, process, technology and tools. She is a frequent speaker and blogger on Inside Sales productivity, trends, and effectiveness, and the author of Building Inside Sales: Framing a Best Practice Group and co-author of Sales Speaks: Perception & Ponderings on Marketing Leads.

It’s difficult to understand what to look for and what questions to ask and that’s how and why Nancy is making a difference. Nancy produces informative content to help marketers and sellers know what questions to ask potential suppliers, what questions to ask themselves (to determine their needs) and what are the key considerations. Each week, she informs more than 30,000 subscribers about new tools and helpful content,” she said.
