Introduce yourself to the Community

Hey Community friends,

We thought it might be fun to know who’s who -- I’ll start!

I’m Nisha, and I’ve been with Gong since April. I’m so excited to lead our Community efforts. I live in Mountain View and am really passionate about building Gong Marvels. My family consists of three generations of sales people! Hit me up if you have any questions or concerns, or you just want to say hi.

Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi Everyone!

 

My name is Levy Sinyor. If you are 50/50 on how to pronounce my first name think Don McLean's classic line “Drove my Chevy to the Levy”..

Im a Strategic Customer Success Manager at Gong, having joined 4 months ago. Ive been in Success for a number of years, and thoroughly enjoy helping Gong customers achieve value and success from the platform. 

A little about me outside of work - Im a British Expat living in NJ, married my very own Jersey Gurrl, have two incredible little kids and am im avid fan of the currently dire Manchester United…

Cheers!

Levy

Hi all - I am thrilled to have a chance to work with Gong b/c I have heard so much about it over the past few years.

Over the past 20 years, I have been working in either fixed income sales or fixed income technology sales in London, New York, San Francisco and Dallas. 

You would be shocked if you knew the rudimentary tools trading desks threw at their sales teams (phonebook and a Bloomberg Terminal) so this is a massive upgrade and learning curve for me.

I discovered Kevin Dorsey about a year ago and my head almost exploded at how much I did not know about sales. He praised Gong and I can’t wait to get going on it.

 

Hi New Friends -- 

 

My name is Chris and I am a Sales Performance Consultant at LinkedIn. I work primarily with our North American SMB teams supporting the ramp of new hires, enabling product launches, and sales skill development. Gong has been my go to tool for over 2 years and consistently yields high quality results. Excited to be apart of the community and learning for you all!

Cheers, 

Chris

Hi Guys,

I’m Miram, and I’ve been with Gong since April. I’m so excited to lead the Senior Inside Sales Team. I live in New Jersey right outside of New York City and I am really passionate about building top performing Gongsters. My non gong family consists my amazing husband and my 4 month old baby boy, while my current gong family is a 0 person team right now, but will soon change as we grow. I am currently building out the sales team from scratch under John Jenson and Bob Spina! Looking forward to meeting you all and being a part of this community. 

 

Hit me up if you have any questions or you just want to say hi. I am excited to be here!

Looking forward to getting into things!

Hi Everyone- Dan Laun here.  I’m a managing director at Helpsystems where I run the Automation business- RPA, Intelligent Capture and Job scheduling.  I recently started an initiative with my sales team to improve gong adoption and get better at discovery calls.  I shared my initiative with the president here and now I’m scheduled to share how Gong can help reps at our virtual sales meeting.  Any content I can recycle?  thanks in advance!

Hello All! Longtime lover of Gong, Rev and Sales leader and mother of 2 humans, 2 cats and 1 dog.

Hi Dan, welcome to the Gong Community! Glad to have you here. 

I found a couple of pieces of content for reps that you can borrow from or share: 

  1. Supercharging Prospecting Emails Using Gong with Alyssa Sanchez
  2. Leveraging Gong to improve objection handling

There are also some great nuggets of advice in this thread about finding and building your Gong champions. 

 

I hope this helps! Would love for you to share more with the Gong Community about the resources you’re putting together once you present :) 

Hi Everyone! I’m Molly, a Program Manager at Hawke Media (digital marketing agency). I grew up in Georgia and have lived in Los Angeles for nearly a decade. Looking forward to learning how to maximize the value of Gong here at Hawke and better integrate Gong across other platforms as well.
