About the Speaker:

Tom Pae: Director of Global Sales Strategy & Operations, SailPoint

As a sales ops professional, Tom has a keen eye for efficiency using data and process improvements. It started early in his career as an Army intelligence officer, looking at battlefield data to help predict and forecast enemy activity. Now, he uses his skills to predict sales performance and streamline Go-To-Market revenue generating processes. Hey, it’s not as sexy, but it pays the bills. Tom has spent a lot of his time honing his craft at some of the fastest growing and most well recognized tech companies in the world such as LinkedIn, Slack, and Handshake. It’s at Slack where he discovered the beauty of learning how to communicate with others in a more simple, pleasant and productive medium. He’s now ready to share the joys of Slack to the rest of the world and help others learn about the power behind this tool.
