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

While this model offers flexibility and increased productivity, it also presents unique challenges for managers and team members.
