Transitioning Global SDR Teams to Remote with Kent Venook

July 7, 2020

By now, video calls and virtual team meetings are the new normal. And while transitioning from in-office work to WFH required making more adjustments than simply using Zoom, Kent Venook was ready. As Vice President of Global Sales Development at Talkdesk, Kent had already developed effective methods of remotely hiring and onboarding new SDRs — the pandemic just made him get a little more creative with how he applied what he already knew to his SDR team.

In this episode, Kent shares tactics he has found successful, such as promoting video-call power-hours and creating engaging check-ins. Visit for show notes and insights from this episode.
