A Look at Our Event with Slack in San Francisco

As a completely remote company, PowerToFly relies on Slack everyday to make our work possible. More than any other platform, including email, our global team communicates via Slack. The PowerToFly team is global, stretching from India to Russia to Argentina to the United States. It's amazing to think that we can utilize one tool to not only chat but to send documents, brainstorm and even share wedding photos.

That is why PowerToFly was beyond thrilled to partner with Slack for our second networking event for women in sales. After giving New York some love in September, we relocated to Slack's San Francisco office to host an evening of panel discussions and networking featuring some of Slack's women sales leaders and male allies.


One thing that made this even especially meaningful is that one of our panelists was Kylie Maddex. While Kylie currently works as Large Enterprise Account Executive, she previously served as PowerToFly's first ever Head of Sales. Kylie is amazing and we at PowerToFly love to see our alumni go off and push their careers to the next level.

Joining Kylie on the panel were Maggie Hott, Manager, Mid-Market Sales; Renu Gupta, Large Enterprise Sales Leader; Kelly Bray, Director, Customer Success Programs & Retention Strategy; and Craig Nile, Head of Enterprise Sales, North America. Moderated by PowerToFly's Director of Customer Success Cristina Duke, our panelists discussed their own career journeys, what drew them to Slack, the lessons they learned working for large enterprises and other startups and how they maintain work-life integration.

Our capacity crowd of over 120 attendees also had a chance to ask our accomplished panel questions of their own. After an enlightening audience Q&A, we moved back into networking so that our guests had plenty of time to ask follow-up questions on their own time. Slack even gifted our attendees face masks which were a big hit (and went quickly).

We love getting to meet the people that make a product that we love and we can't wait to continue our partnership with Slack. Visit Slack's page on PowerToFly to learn more about their open roles.
