Unifying the Go-To-Market Tech Stack, with Namrata Ram, VP of Sales and Strategy at Slack

On this week’s episode of the Revenue Insights Podcast, we were joined by Namrata Ram, VP of Sales and Strategy at Slack, who discusses fostering collaboration across revenue teams, the benefit of engagement signals, and why prioritization in business is critical. 

Namrata grew up in Bangalore and saw how the IT industry transformed the city which inspired her to become a Software Developer. She soon realized her passions lied in building strategy and yearned for a role where she would have a birds-eye view of the business. So when Slack reached out 3 years ago, it was a perfect fit.
