Workshop Team & Mentors
J. Ryan Williams, keynote speaker, Advisor & Founder @ SALESCOLLIDER
J. Ryan got his start mentoring founders as the enterprise sales advisor to InVision where he coached both CEO and sales reps to close the first dozen of what would be many enterprise sales deals. From there he was hooked, offering the same high quality training he led for 300 reps at AdRoll to founders from around the world (including sales workshops in Italy, Mexico, Japan and helping founders get into top accelerators in Silicon Valley such as Y-Combinator and 500 Startups. This vision of providing sales mentorship to founders has become SalesCollider, the best place for founders to connect with sales leaders and advisors..
Today J. Ryan is an active consultant and trainer in the startup community. In addition to working with SalesCollider companies, he has served as an EIR at 500 Startups, a mentor at FirstRound Capital, and an advisor to EliteMeet, a non-profit dedicated to career transitioning veterans from the US Special Forces.

Mentors & Speakers
Each Revenue-Roadmap event is customized to audience and sponsor. Typically we work closely with a VC or Accelerator who is hosting the event to ensure the content and speakers align with participant goals. On longer workshops, like our event this spring in Singapore, we bring in a team of mentors and speakers. We also host shorter events and meet ups - like the night that Sam spoke about How Buyers Buy in San Francisco.
