Google recently announced plans to offer certification scholarships in support of its efforts to train and empower Africans to develop world class apps on Android, web, and cloud technologies. They’ll be training and certifying a generation of developers just as a global rollout of 5G networks is about to get underway.

Last week, you may have “met” Edward — the sales rep tasked with expanding his software company’s reach into APAC.

Despite the fact that Edward possessed more than a decade of SaaS experience, he was having trouble closing deals.

Interestingly, his disappointing conversion rate wasn’t due to poor product knowledge, distracting coworkers or lack of sleep; it actually stemmed from venturing into uncharted territory.
