NWN Carousel’s 2022 Sales Kickoff

Value-Based Offerings to Accelerate Hybrid Work

Last week’s Play2Win Sales Kickoff experience was incredible! Just coming off our live, in-person relaunch event in September, we wanted to create a high-energy and interactive hybrid event that would really engage our GTM organization for 2022.


The main event, started on Tuesday afternoon, January 11, with our executive staff gathered at company headquarters in Waltham, MA. It was one of the most frigid Boston mornings at a record-breaking low temp of 10 °F. Weather aside, the energy began to heat up once the day commenced! Leadership held live video-streaming presentations for remote attendees across the country and it was a seamless experience for in-person, and online participants using the technology we provide to our customers on a daily basis.

Continuous Enablement is in our DNA

The NWN Carousel 2021 training program was intense with sales logging in over 12,000 collective hours. Our ramp-up of investment in sales skills was due to the merger of two IT powerhouses forming new industry leading Cloud Communications Service Provider leader – NWN Carousel. Through strategic partnerships with our customers and manufacturers, we transformed millions of remote users in support of hybrid work.

With many months of planned training on our core offerings, our salesforce is fully equipped with the knowledge to support our customers’ unified communications needs. We now feel it’s time to apply the knowledge and flawlessly execute on behalf of our customers!

Agenda Built to Re-Energize

The 2022 “Play2Win” sales kickoff was an opportunity to (virtually) come together to hear directly from our customers, colleagues and offerings’ experts. NWN Carousel leadership reinforced the vision for the New Year: Engage Customers with Value-Based Offerings to Accelerate Hybrid Work

Leadership Keynote Speakers

Andrew Gilman, CMO & SKO Host: Andrew is a dynamic speaker who regularly appears on industry podcasts and webinars. Naturally, he was our first choice to host! “As we look to 2022, we are excited to continue to build upon our outstanding customer service model to further our distinction as the leading Cloud Communications Service provider in North America!” said Andrew.

Jim Sullivan, CEO: Jim established the focus for 2022 by announcing a new Hybrid Work Suite. HWS is a bundle of integrated collaboration services, and tools designed to enable organizations to easily transition their on-premises unified communications, connectivity and security capabilities to the cloud, or modernize their on-premises infrastructure to provide a modern, flexible and secure – “Cloud-like” experience.
