11:00 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 22
Expo Hall: Strategic Solutions Stage
Sales training can often seem like the toughest nut to crack. You plan, design, learn new tools, hire consultants, and still you haven’t moved the needle. The sales team is the lifeblood of the company, generating revenue every day. The demand is high and the pressure strong. Those who are charged with training them face an equal challenge: improve productivity, accelerate deals, and enable individual and team success. How can you accomplish it, especially if you are a team of one?
In this presentation, you will learn about designing bite-size learning to meet the needs of the individual, driving training into the point of work. You will learn about establishing techniques to strengthen the sales core and capitalizing fingertip knowledge with mobile devices. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to make the most out of what you have (no tools, no budget, no team).
