Q: Who’s invited to the North American Sales Kickoff 2018?
A: All sales VPs, sales leaders, major account managers, national account managers, channel sales leaders, channel account managers, and SE managers.
Q: Why aren’t SEs invited to the Kickoff?
A: We absolutely believe the SEs are one of the most vital reasons for our continuing success in the marketplace but due to budget constraints and the amount of rooms available in the Cosmopolitan, we weren’t able to include SEs this year. In addition, all the SEs have been together as part of the SE Summits that occurred in Dallas last summer and will take place again in May, 2018.

Q: Why are we doing this over the weekend?
A: In order to take advantage of having all of our Fortinet executives participate in the Kickoff, it is occurring immediately prior to the beginning of Accelerate18 which begins at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, February 26th.
Q: Do sales reps get to stay and attend Accelerate18?
