Our Guest Speaker:

Most sales organizations are very good at a game no longer being played. They have perfected the ability to consistently hit the target, the problem it is the wrong target in today's new economy. The way customers buy, select suppliers, build relationships, and view sales people has dramatically changed with the internet.  Yet most have sales organizations continue to sell as if they were in a quaint Norman Rockwell painting. Learn about alternative sales strategies for your sales team that helps minimize commoditization, reduce long selling cycles, and decrease rampant sales force inefficiencies.
