The Future of Artificial Intelligence and Sales – A Vision from Prayag Narula

May 16, 2017


These ideas and technologies such as Artificial Intelligence move over us in waves, some burn out and some keep coming.  AI has been coming on for 65 years, but as a true marketing application it has only been serious for a few years. Some marketers have found  they have been doing some version of AI for five years or more, some are awakening because of the wave of new applications.  And now we have AI and its applications in sales.  Our guest is Prayag Narula, CEO of LeadGenuis and he discusses his vision of AI and its impact on salespeople.

This program covers:

  • The huge impact AI is having on sales revenues and not just marketing.
  • Why companies using this technology are enormously more competitive
  • How salespeople who are fueled by AI know what the prospect will need before they speak to them.
  • How this AI technology decreases go-to-market and sales cycle
