Outro

Hired the wrong BDM is an expensive move – put a little effort extra upfront to make sure you’re picking the right candidate. 

Most sales people have the gift of the gab – ensure you’re digging deep to set the right expectations, and also reading between the lines when you’re going through the interview process.
