In this episode of the Startup Selling Podcast, I interviewed Richard Smith.
Richard is the Co-Founder and Head of Sales for Refract. He has 10+ years of sales experience working for and building high activity and scalable outbound software sales teams.
He has been a regular contributor to leading sales content sites such as Hubspot and SalesHacker and was nominated this year as a Top 50 SaaS Sales Leader in the UK.
