The prospects who will be working with your company will generally not engage a salesperson until 55% of the way through through sales cycle. The reason for this is that, in the age of readily-available information, most would rather educate themselves on your product or service, coming to their own conclusions as to whether or not you will be able to solve their problems.  The troubled economy of the previous few years has created a different type of consumer — a consumer who expects you to deliver an experience filled with valuable insights and solutions to problems before they actually have to speak with you.

Whether you are a beginner or an industry expert, this event has a learning track tailored for your needs. Galvin Technologies is excited to be sending representatives to this event. As we look at the impressive agenda in an attempt to identify the sessions that most interest us, we found it helpful to view everything by the topics covered.  This list has helped us make our decisions.  Hopefully, it will be of use to you as well.
