About this Event

This will be a challenging Q&A event where three innovative B2B sales leaders and subject matter experts will debate the best strategies to be more client centric in the way we sell in order to accelerate revenue, especially in this new challenging world of COVID. And you the participants can fire questions at them.

To get us started here's some questions that come my mind:

  • How do we better define those companies that have the highest propensity to buy from us?
  • How do we more effectively build trusted relationship wit the decision makers and influencers in those companies?
  • How do we better position our story uniquely with each decision maker and influencer?
  • How do we capture more valuable insights from the markets we serve and make them available in real time to the remainder of the markets we serve and our sellers?
  • What does the Client Centric Prospecting cadence that is of most value to our potential customers look like and who should be communicating to them?
  • How do we build trusted relationships with the decision makers and influencers before they are ready to buy?
  • How do we ensure that the pipeline that is secured through successful Client Centric Prospecting is pipeline that has the highest propensity to close in the shortest possible time?
  • What is stopping us from delivering on the successful science of Client Centric Prospecting?
