Everyone talks about cold outreach in terms of sales. But you hardly hear anyone discussing how important it is for recruiters on the hunt for candidates. Unless you talk to Lavender's Will Allred. If you haven't heard of Lavender, it's a tool that helps improve your emails, encouraging the right people to engage with you, whether you're in sales, marketing, or you're a recruiter reaching out to top prospects. Working in all those spaces, we were delighted to have Lavender's Co-Founder, Will, on to discuss cold outreach, engaging candidates, and much more.
How many times have you heard people talking about their failure stories on LinkedIn? Or discussing how important hiring top talent is? Well, if you're Gong's Wendy Harris, perhaps too many times. Because for Wendy, she'd much rather hear about people who have succeeded than failed. And she'd prefer to hire someone with less talent and a greater work ethic, than the other way round. That's just one of the areas we covered when Wendy appeared on The Talent Intelligence podcast. As users (and superfans) of Gong, we were delighted when Wendy agreed to come on and talk to us about talent, her working life, future planning, and much more.
