Meet Grant Barnes, one of our panelists at JumpCon, the inaugural Digital Transformation Summit. He will stun the crowd with his deep knowledge of company culture on the “Culture Panel: How To Hire, Motivate, and Train Staff To Build Great Culture”.

Join us in Nashville, Tennessee, aka Music City, on October 24th, 2019 to hear speakers like Grant Barnes talk sales, marketing, and beyond.

Why JumpCon: The Digital Sales Transformation Summit

JumpCon is a one-day event bringing together sales leaders, marketers, and business owners from across the country to talk about growing businesses through digital sales and marketing transformation.

Why Grant Barnes?

Grant has held management roles for 10+ years with his current role being Director of Business Development at Dialpad. He’s a natural sales leader, specializing in growing and developing teams.

Grant is passionate about hiring and developing talent, building processes, and scaling sales organizations. Before Dialpad, he was the senior director of sales development for Tenfold and worked as a sales manager at Cloudera for 3+ years.  It’s also important to note that at Cloudera, he led his inside sales team through their IPO. A feat that doesn’t often go smoothly. 

On a recent panel, Grant said, “You can’t teach height. Just like you can’t teach hunger, curiosity, and drive. I can teach tactics and enable them with the specialization of the job. But once you find those people, you’re golden and that’s what I think makes or breaks the growth of your team.” 

As we work to tie marketing and sales within digital sales transformation, creativity comes into play. Grant says, “I like to lead my team so that they have the autonomy from the messaging and tools to be creative and share with the rest of the team. I want them to test and come up with new strategies.“

Take a few culture pointers from Grant Barnes and the rest of the culture panel. Grab a ticket if you haven’t yet.

Getting to know Grant Barnes

One special thing about you that is not in your bio? 

I maaaay have raised an alligator in my apartment in college. My roommate and I were the best gator mothers West of Florida.

…until the incident. 

What would you love to chat about with conference attendees other than work? 

Topics I enjoy talking about include but are not limited to the following: reading (always looking for my next book to devour), outdoors activities (camping, hiking, national parks, etc.), fitness (clean eating, weights, running), woodworking (love the smell of sawdust in the morning), the sky (enamored by everything about it). 

Why speak at JumpCon when you could be anywhere in the world? 

My psychic told me that I should be in Nashville on October 24th, so it’s a “two birds, one stone” scenario.
