Leahanne Hobson


We measure the sales moments that matter for hundreds of companies worldwide every year. We can tell you if a buyer will buy or abandon the sale – and why. We know the benchmarks in B2B and with many of the Fortune 500. The current buying environment is digital and virtual only. This is driving companies to quickly re-evaluate their sales capabilities to ensure they have a modern sales engine with a fully functioning buying experience.
