KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Mark Roberge

The vanguard of a revolution in sales, Mark Roberge has worked out how to apply big data to every aspect of your sales process, from hiring to leads to closing. Roberge served as vice president of global sales and services at acclaimed startup HubSpot, scaling annualized revenue from $0 to $100 million and expanding his team from 1 to 450 employees. During that time, he was ranked #19 in Forbes’ Top 30 Social Sellers in the World and awarded the 2010 Salesperson of the Year at the MIT Sales Conference.

Roberge has channeled his success at HubSpot into the best-selling book, “The Sales Acceleration Formula: Using Data, Technology, and Inbound Selling to go from $0 to $100 Million” (Wiley, February 2015).

Still active with a number of startups as a board of directors member, advisory board member and angel investor, Roberge is currently a professor in the Entrepreneurial Management Unit at the Harvard Business School.
