Event Description:
What are Powerpoints and stale conversations costing you?
Many salespeople can get an executive meeting. But they don't take it. Why not? One reason is that traditional approaches to executive conversations don't work and salespeople know it. Executives know it too: 82% of customers say sales reps are unprepared for sales meetings. The key is to break away from time-worn methods of leading a conversation and prepare for business conversations that are compelling to an executive (and any discerning audience!).

Richard Ellis will share from his experience leading sales enablement initiatives in companies ranging from SMBs to Fortune 500 enterprises in tech, finance, health, and beyond. He'll guide attendees in learning how to:

  • Rethink the executive pitch to lead meaningful customer conversations
  • Deliver insights to get the opportunity to ask for more information from the executive.
  • Combine insights with visuals to lead a collaborative business conversation
