The B2B marketing and sales landscape is evolving. And we are growing to address the next generation of marketing and sales challenges. That’s why we are excited to announce new services and resources to help CEOs and their marketing, sales, and customer success teams achieve greater success in 2018.

KickStart Alliance is a sales and marketing leadership consulting team with a vision of inspiring companies to become more customer-focused. Our value proposition is a simple idea: Partner with client executive leaders to asses your operations, recommend improvements, guide the organization to adopt powerful and proven best practices, teach you how to do it, and then get out of your way.

We literally “kickstart” your organization to achieve a higher level of operational excellence.


Celebrating 15 years: Thank you to our many clients!

In November, we celebrated our 15 year anniversary with a client appreciation party with our co-sponsor, Bloofusion, an online strategy agency. More than 80 executives from local companies joined us at the Hiller Aviation museum in San Carlos, California, for an evening of networking and fun.

New book: Built for Global

Janet Gregory & Robert Pearlstein, authors of Built for Global

At our Client Appreciation Party we also launched a new book by KickStart co-founder and principal, Janet Gregory, and her co-author, Robert Pearlstein. Built for Global is written for CEOs and executives leaders interested in expanding internationally. Janet & Robert share practical advice for improving your success in global expansion and watching for hidden pitfalls like early indicators that an international sales strategy may be off course. This book is an important guide book for any executive excited to harness the power of thinking globally.



Looking forward: We’re just getting started!
