Mansour Mbaye – How to Grow Sales In A Tough Market

It looks like the world’s economy is entering troubled waters.

On the upside, many sales teams have already survived a challenging period, although the scale of the challenge depended on the sector your company is located in. 

A true economic downturn inevitably affects every sector. 

In turn, it becomes about which companies in each sector can make the most of the opportunities and minimise the negative consequences that downturns bring. 

The challenge Sales Leaders face is how to keep their sales teams motivated and focused on achieving their targets in a new environment, vs mourning the market conditions that have passed. 

In this Growth Hub Leadership Interview, we speak to Mansour Mbaye CRO of Shootsta. 

Shootsta is a video platform that enables Marketing and Sales teams to create high-quality videos at scale whilst driving consistent messaging to their Customers.  

Alongside Shootsta, Mansour has held leadership roles at Salesforce and Hewlett-Packard.
