We help sales leaders think about this kind of thing all year-round. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that we’ve already booked a date and time for the first Sales 2.0 Conference in 2015. The event will be in Philadelphia on March 16 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. We’ve asked our speakers to prepare presentations that fit the theme of “Build a Better Sales Organization.” Here are some of the topics they’ll address:
How to Tackle the Four Megatrends Upending Sales
People, Process, and Technology: Upgrading Your Sales Teams as Fast as Technology
Why Rejection is Awesome
Sales Performance Management: Why Front-Line Sales Leaders Truly Fill the Most Important Role in the Organization
(Read more about each presentation in our conference agenda.)
We’re very pleased about our line up of speakers and are confident each one will bring invaluable insight that many sales leaders would not otherwise be exposed to. Here’s a little bit more about each one of them.
