How to Build your Sales Plan of Action Based on Marketing Automation - Vince McLain Details Download
If you pursue every lead from marketing with the same plan of action, you either have unlimited resources or are missing opportunities to focus on the best leads.

How Artificial Intelligence is Solving the Biggest Challenge in Sales - Jared Haleck Details Download
Training is important and so is hiring, but according to CSO Insights and InsideSales Labs they are not the biggest thing sales teams are struggling with--but you knew that already, right?

The biggest challenge across all of sales is BUILDING QUALIFIED PIPELINE and we see the effects of it every day, as only 53% of sales reps are hitting quota.

Sadly, the numbers show many sales leaders believe the way to solve this problem is adding more sales reps, but that solution is only making the problem worse.

What will make this problem go away…REALLY?

In this session, you'll learn why sales pipeline is the biggest problem in sales and what companies are doing to solve it.
IDEA EXCHANGE: Re-Humanizing the Sales Process - Bob Perkins Details Download
Today’s SDRs and Inside Sales Reps are pressured to not only achieve quota, but to hit hundreds of daily activity metrics. The need for speed is ever-present. Today’s reps have 6-10 technologies they use in their day-to-day prospecting and customer engagement and without these tools, a rep could fall short. Yet, the fact remains that quota attainment is on the decline. In an effort to increase activities through “sales acceleration”, have we substituted speed for personal? 

Our panel will discuss the importance of personalizing our customer sales engagement while sharing some actionable tips and best practices to help us “re-humanize” sales.

Buyer Enablement: Empowering Your Champion to Sell For You - Garin Hess Details Download
With the explosion of account-based sales, you as a seller are selling to a committee, aka a buying group. But you as a salesperson can only carry the ball so far. We all know that the stakeholder you leave out is inevitably the one that nukes the deal. And very often, the real selling is done after the call is over, by your newly minted champion within the black box of executive interactions. Is that PDF or slide deck really the best we can do to empower this poor soul to be a change-maker? (Spoiler: 8/10 times, they’ll butcher it.)

To truly ensure a closed deal, you need that all-important internal champion to take the deal all the way across the line. Buyer enablement is the practice of empowering your internal champion to close the deal when you’re not in the room.

In this session, you will learn how to:
• Discover and engage stakeholders more quickly so your deal isn’t torpedoed late in the game
• Equip your champion to sell for you in a way that brings stakeholders to the conversation educated and ready to talk specifics
• Discover misalignment across stakeholder interests so you can guide them toward consensus
• Track the key metrics of Buyer Enablement to predict success
