Hello ModernSelling reader, and thank you for stopping by to check out what we're doing here. I'm Larissa Gschwandtner and, with my father Gerhard Gschwandtner, we're the owners / senior people at SellingPower.com, which is the USA-based equivalent magazine / community that ModernSelling.com is for you here in the UK / EMEA.
|Gerhard - Modern Selling Power x 2.0!|
We're all familiar with the special relationship between the UK and USA, and with Globalisation that affects both nations, and trading blocs like Europe and the rest of the world. For SellingPower, that has currently resulted in our creating and hosting a series of conferences, looking at and discussing the evolving trends that are having the most impact on the sales profession, wherever you may happen to live and work. And particularly if you are finding that the internet is affecting the way you do business, and communicate with your colleagues, customers and prospects?
So London is our next venue, and the purpose of this page is to act as a UK / EMEA hub for discussions and enquiries around it all, as well as any solution follow-ups that you should find resulting from your participation. Here is the home page for the Sales & Marketing 2.0 Conference in London on 7th June 2012, which will be taking place at the ETC Venue in Victoria. This link is to our packed Agenda, and this link is to the Key Speakers.
You will benefit, from getting involved, by gaining mission-critical sales management strategies that will help you to:
- Achieve sales revenue growth in 2012.
- Optimize sales operations.
- Adapt to new customer buying behaviors.
- Align sales and marketing tactics.
An instant take-away being that all attendees will receive these valuable but complimentary industry reports:
- 2012 Key Trends Analysis from CSO Insights
- 2012 Sales Leadership Priorities Study (Frost & Sullivan Report)
I'd also like to take this opportunity to pre-introduce some of our UK / Ireland based speakers, with whom you may already be familiar, and who obviously may be closest to sharing your specific national concerns. With their LinkedIn profiles, where you may already also have Group or direct connections, they are…
