  • 3 Tips for Selling to the Senior level Execs
    3 Tips for Selling to the Senior level Execs Tim Robertson Recorded: Feb 20 2018 50 mins
    Most of us want to have better meetings with senior executives. Meetings that feel like conversations, not pitches. Meetings that build deeper relationships. Meetings that uncover more ways in which they can help their customers. Behind closed doors, when I ask what's holding people back, many will tell me things like, "I don't feel comfortable," "I have nothing to offer to them,"" or "I'm not at their level." Selling to Senior level executives can be difficult, and getting a first meeting can be a real challenge. But, in our experience, the most difficult part is not getting the first meeting. It's getting the second one. Or the third one. This webinar explores the ways that you can get to that second and third meeting

  • BRC & PwC Webinar: National Minimum Wage Regulations: Are You Compliant?
    BRC & PwC Webinar: National Minimum Wage Regulations: Are You Compliant? John Harding, Partner at PWC; Emily Webster, Senior Manager at PWC; Fionnuala Horrocks-Burns, Policy Advisor at BRC. Feb 28 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The retail industry is committed to complying with the National Minimum Wage (NMW) regulations. But we know that the regulations are complex and understanding how they work in practice can be difficult.

    Falling foul of the regulations can result in:
    Repayments for up to 6 years (including current and ex-employees) increased to reflect the prevailing NMW rates; penalties of up to 200% of the underpayments identified; and public naming and shaming by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

    It is not easy to spot where and why breaches can occur, or how to remedy them. PwC have a specialist team who have a great deal of experience in assisting retailers to identify and manage potential compliance risks around NMW. This is based on our understanding of the technical aspects of the regulations and also our practical experience of the approach taken by HMRC when they perform their audits.
    The webinar that we are running in February will take you through what is involved in a NMW audit and the top areas that HMRC will focus on during an audit. We will suggest some immediate actions and take questions.

    The Power of Perception: What Women Need to Know About Leadership & Gender Shawn Andrews, Founder & CEO, Andrews Research International Mar 6 2018 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Women account for more than 50% of the U.S. Labor force and 60% of college graduates in both the U.S. and Europe. Yet, women hold only 5.0% of CEO positions at S&P 500 companies.

    The way in which we sell is changing, especially for women in hi-tech careers. Today’s sales environment is culture-driven, and the culture in the hi-tech industry can be a challenging place for women in leadership positions.

We discuss the problem or need in depth and work toward a proof of concept. Instead of selling big deals, the market has shifted towards proof of concept, subscription-based and selling to inform. It’s not just about sales anymore; it’s about sales and marketing alignment and how to bridge the gaps.

    - How the market has shifted
    - How women can help and enable other women

    A successful and effective leader is like an athlete- they must continuously train to stay ahead in an ever-changing business climate. Many leaders come with “built-in” skills and behaviors that give them an advantage, while others may need to learn new behaviors just to stay in the race.

These are just a few of the behaviors we’ll uncover that are needed for both the aspiring and current leader to catch and maintain a leadership stride. We’ll also highlight real-life examples of current executives and leaders, and share some key tips to evaluate what’s working and what’s not.

    In this interactive session, you will learn:
    •What it takes to have a leadership mindset.
    •Identifying behaviors that we need to "unpack" or need to evolve.
    •Understand core attributes great leaders must have when they are leading a team, running a company or communicating.
