The TAS Group, the world leader in on-demand sales effectiveness solutions, today announced its sponsorship and co-ordination of the Sales 2.0 Network (S20N), a global, virtual thought leadership forum to discuss issues relevant to sales professionals in a Web 2.0 world.

The first manifestation of S20N is a “super-blog” authored by some of the industry’s most respected commentators and practitioners to share their wisdom, experience and insight. Each of the authors will contribute to the network on a regular basis and raise topics for discussion and debate among the broader community. Users can actively participate through comments and collaboration and subscribe to the network using freely available RSS (Really Simple Syndication) technology.

“Selling is changing fast in this Internet-enabled world,” said Donal Daly, CEO of The TAS Group. “We thought it would be beneficial if we could assemble in one virtual place some of the world’s leading thinkers on the future of sales. So we created a forum where their combined wisdom could be collected and shared to foster discussion on a global scale, enrich the selling lives of the participants and enable learning from the wisdom of the broader community.”

Charter members of the Sales 2.0 Network and network authors include the following:

Greg Alexander, CEO – Sales Benchmark Index
Rick Bakosh, Managing Partner, Sales Strategy/Sales Transformation – Accenture
Matt Cox, Senior Director, Global Sales Enablement – Symantec
Donal Daly, CEO – The TAS Group
Tom Dolan, President, Global Accounts – Xerox
Patti Elliott, President – The TAS Group
Joe Galvin, Vice President and Research Director – Sirius Decisions
Jonathan Sampson, Director, Customer Operations – Sun Microsystems
Dave Stein, CEO – ES Research

Key topics for S20N over the coming months will include: “The Role of Technology as a Sales Enabler,” “Global Account Management in a Flat World,” “Just-in-time Virtual Learning for the Sales Professional,” “Metrics as a Map to Sales Improvement,” “Sales Talent Management” and “What’s This Sales 2.0 Stuff Anyway.”

Charter members of S20N will author blog posts and participate actively in the online discussions that ensue. Under the rules of the network, all participants will refrain from self-promotion on the network to enrich the collaborative and learning experience for subscribers.

The TAS Group manages the infrastructure to support S20N and monitors posts, comments and general etiquette. Scheduling and topics co-ordination are managed by The TAS Group in concert with charter contributors.
