It’s a Buyer’s World. Have You Adjusted? Understanding How to Compete in the Digital Age
Historically, sales people had control of ￼the buying conversation because they held the information. Now, with the internet and digital sharing of content, the buyer is armed with much more information, and has taken control of the buying cycle. If your organization has not adapted, you are losing business to those that have. This presentation talks about the transference of power, and how sales organizations must change in order to gain the attention and business of today’s buyers.
