Who We’re Looking For
Organizations look to TED to infuse bold thinking, fresh ideas, and TED’s uniquely human approach into Learning & Development (L&D) initiatives that will inspire their workforce. We have spent the last few years developing the TED@Work program (tedatwork.ted.com). It will be your job to help us accelerate the growth of TED’s full product suite for workplace learning.
We are looking for someone who can confidently and creatively articulate how the power of TED ideas, diverse speaker voices, and the TED brand can transform organizations in today’s world. You will need to embody all of the characteristics of a strong salesperson: objection handling, solution seeking, empathy, and resilience. Equally important is your knowledge of the pain points and challenges of businesses today, and how companies’ talent development goals are informed by them.
You should have subject matter expertise in talent development, organizational development, corporate learning and/or corporate learning ecosystems. You should also be able to speak to how content experiences (both in self-directed and group formats) help drive organizational change. Our goal is to eventually make you an expert at TED’s content approach, and what makes TED so unique.
As Strategic Account Executive, you will be the first voice that TED@Work prospects hear. Listening to and understanding the needs of C-level executives, learning and development professionals, and technologists is a critical part of what will make you successful. You will qualify opportunities directly and work collaboratively with the TED@Work partner network.
