Jan: Mo, how do you get round the objection: "Address it to me and I will pass it around"?
Mo: There's a lot we don't know about your approach that got you that objection in the first place - can you tell us how you approached the gatekeeper who said this to you?
Jan: I asked the Personal Assistant who I could talk to that would be responsible for the product marketing for blah blah and she said address your question to me and I will see who… Continue
