Session 1

Date: July 14, 2021

Time: 12:00pm – 12:45pm Pacific

Guest: Raven Winchester, Business Development Rep @ LaunchDarkly

Host: Shaan Hathiramani, Founder & CEO @ Flockjay

Do you have an interest in tech but aren’t sure you’re right for it? Have a knack for people and have always been told “you’d be great in sales!”? You don’t need a traditional corporate background to break into these high income fields.
 

Raven Winchester did it! After working with Flockjay, Raven, who previously sold produce door to door, worked as a janitor, and later sold telecom products, went from feeling stagnant with limited prospects, to becoming a top seller at LaunchDarkly (a feature management platform helping software teams build better software, faster).

Join us on Wednesday July 14, for the inaugural session of our webinar series “Changing Your Life Through Sales”.  Raven will walk us through her journey and unpack the skills that actually matter to thrive in the sales industry.  Q&A to follow the discussion. See you there!

Guest: Robert Gordon IV, Business Development @ Flockjay

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of African American freedom from slavery in the United States. Each year, the festivities emphasize the education and achievements of African Americans.

Recognition of Juneteenth in 2020 was a new concept for many companies and a first for some employees. It brought attention to a date that is often unremarked and highlighted how much work still needs to be done.

Join Flockjay, ThinkHuman and 15Five on June 17th at 9 AM Pacific / 12 PM Eastern for a conversation that will center on the black experience and unpack how we can hold each other accountable and show up for black employees in June and beyond. Set aside time to learn how you can create space at your organization for Juneteenth and create a DEI roadmap for all cultural observances throughout the year.

Intro to Tech Sales & SDR AMA w/Nisheet & Ami

Date: March 31, 2021

Time: 6:00pm Pacific

Guests: Nisheet Shah, Business Development @ Zoom; Ami Patel, Sales Development @ Rippling

Host: Monique Recoder, Admissions @ Flockjay

Wondering about starting a career in tech sales? How much money can you make? What does the career path look like? What does an SDR actually do? This is the event for you!

You’ll get to hear from two of our alumni who have successfully launched tech sales careers without any prior tech or sales experience.

Nisheet has a background in hospitality and restaurant management. In fact, he and Ami ran a restaurant business together. After a job opportunity fell through he reached out to us about enrolling in the next class. Unfortunately, he had actually missed the application deadline so we had to say no. But Nisheet was so persistent and emphatic that we knew he had the motivation to succeed and let him join class. 4 months after joining Flockjay Nisheet landed a sales role at Zoom.

Ami was able to watch Nisheet’s Flockjay experience unfold in real time. She was constantly amazed by the amount of support that Nisheet received in his journey. When he landed with Zoom, Ami knew it was time to leave her banking job behind and pursue a similar path to upward mobility and opportunity in tech. She joined Flockjay last August and landed a sales role at Rippling.
