Connor Cirillo

Conversational Marketing Manager, HubSpot

Connor came to HubSpot after wearing many hats in early-stage startups. He noticed the way that people interacted online was changing. Friends and family don't call or email each other anymore — they message one another. Businesses should be accessible in the same way. At HubSpot, Connor leads the global rollout for chatbots and messaging platforms. He sees a horizon where businesses market, sell, and care for customers by messaging with them. 

Meet Connor at the June 26th Philly HUG event. RSVP here.


Carole Mahoney


Carole Mahoney is the founder of Unbound Growth, a scientific sales development firm that eliminates the guesswork of hiring the right salespeople and develops sales teams using a science-based data-driven process to achieve 130-160% of quota in less than 6 months with a 98% annual customer retention rate.

Less than half of salespeople meet quota despite investments in sales technology and training.  Even meeting quota is often not enough due to customer churn. If technology and training alone is not the answer, and selling more is not enough - how do you increase revenue? The road to growth requires raising performance levels across the sales team for predictable quota attainment and customer retention.

Unbound Growth, a scientific sales development firm, eliminates the guesswork of how to hire the right salespeople and develop rockstar sales teams using a proven data and science-based process that delivers predictable revenue.  We analyze and compare over 282 different sales attributes to design development programs that install the right mindsets, behaviors and skill sets that align with how your buyers make decisions.

Steve Greenspan

Sales Executive, Direct Line Development

My discovery of and work with Direct Line could not have been any more fitting for what fulfills me. I grew up as a pretty traditional dork, always taking apart and rebuilding the newest computers I could get my hands on. From there I realized the difference between something pre-assembled and what has been a meticulously built piece by piece.
I am a completionist, it's why I read long sci-fi and fantasy series, cook my food from scratch and know that developers are best suited to build from the ground up. I also always end up tying our development into my conversation because, frankly, I love what I do!
