Cold calling is the most prevalent way of securing business meetings – but let’s face it, neither the salesperson or the business leader is a fan of the process.  Cold calling is time consuming, costly, and inefficient. 

The Influence Board was born from nine years of discussions and collaboration with some of the top executives of the largest companies in the U.S. – with their advice on how to solve the cold calling problem. 

For vendors – a way to cut through the noise and get the attention needed.

For executives – a way to intelligently filter vendor requests for relevancy, and a mechanism to raise money for charitable causes.
