Hi there I'm Davonte Bradley!

preHIRED Science-Based Sales® Member

 

I graduated from Hampden Sydney College in 2014 with a B.A. in Philosophy. Over the past seven years, I've held several positions in retail and customer service, but I've also dabbled extensively in entrepreneurship. In that time I believe I've mastered great Customer Service to such a degree that I find it easy to connect with and understand the needs of people before those needs are even clear in their own minds. I was always to problem solver, conflict resolver, mediator, and advisor on any team I ended up in regardless of what my formal job title specified.

I decided I would pursue an industry or field that was actually interesting to me while also having a career with no clear income ceilings- tech sales.

I've learned many skills and methodologies to excel at being an SDR/AE in tech sales. In just about everything I do now I always approach the situation with a client/customer-first mindset, which means I'm always looking to make a genuine connection with someone, not just seeing them as a number or a dollar sign.

That mindset coupled with having an understanding of the practices and methodologies of the top sales and a commitment to always striving to be better than I was the day before means I'm well suited for that kind of role.

In two years or less, I want to be in a Sales leadership that utilizes SaaS sales knowledge and marketing to lead a committed sales team that wants to be the best.
