About the event
A salesperson impacts the customer experience, which ultimately influences the outcomes of both the sales process and a sustained partnership.
An ideal sales conversation is an ongoing exchange of meaningful information that works toward solving a problem and recognizing the client's personal stake in finding a solution with business value.
It requires empathy, thoughtful rapport and the confidence to respond with what the customer needs and wants.
However, the marketplace has become increasingly complex and creating strong customer relationships takes additional skills, different communication channels and more support from leadership.
Today's successful sale process also requires synergy between a company's vision, culture and training.
Our industry-leading sales panel will share their perspectives on what strengths will be key to thriving in the sales evolution.
