Creating High Impact Sales in Energy
5th March 2020





Doqaru are excited to launch our very first Sales Development Conference.

Our conversations with our clients and wider networks led us to create DoqaruCon, an independent conference that brings together like-minded people seeking actionable insights to grow sales in the Energy sector.

We have brought together a mix of motivational speakers, successful entrepreneurs, experienced business professionals, investors and key influencers. We will create live conversation throughout the day and give our delegates a platform to engage with our speakers, so you can expect some great conversation in the room.

“We are delighted to be bringing this conference to Aberdeen in 2020. We want to help as many businesses as possible create high impact sales in energy. We have a packed agenda and an amazing speaker line up confirmed. I can’t wait!”

– Sarah Downs, Co-Founder & Director of Doqaru Ltd
