NAVIGATING: AVOIDING THE NO-PO’S AND FINDING THE POWER BUYERS
Ask any inside sales rep if their contact at a company has buying power, and they’ll usually say yes. Then ask them why their forecasted deal has been stagnant for the past few months and you’ll hear every creative and convincing excuse beyond their control. Chances are, they’ve aligned themselves with a No-Po—a friendly, charming, helpful person who doesn’t have the power to close a deal.
It’s hard to leave a No-Po—they’re so nice! And figuring out who has the real power in a company can be confusing. To make it worse, most companies have plenty of gatekeepers whose job it is to keep salespeople like you from finding out. In this module, you’ll learn that asking a few smart questions can help you separate the No-Po’s from the power buyers before you get stuck. You’ll also learn how to go beyond the obvious power structure and build an org chart that shows the invisible lines of real power in any company.
You’ll learn tools and tactics to help you:
• Build an org chart that works
• Understand the underlying political structures that influence the decision-making process in any organization
• Discern whether particular gatekeepers can help or hurt the sales process
• Determine who makes the buying decisions

The “sharing economy,” with perhaps the best known example being Uber, is fundamentally changing the way the world works. Uber’s transformative business model brings down the cost of transportation and creates a better overall experience for consumers through better utilization of drivers to match consumer demand. The Uber business model is similar to the shift we are seeing in Inside Sales. Buyers want control and convenience whether they are looking for a ride to the airport or purchasing a software product for their business. Join in this discussion as we draw parallels to lessons that Inside Sales teams can leverage to better optimize their own sales processes to meet evolving buyer expectations.

Predictive sales is taking sales by storm. We all know the benefits of being able to better predict our quarter or improve efficiency by having "AI" tell us what to do next. We've seen this for outbound dialing and prospecting - but what truly closes a deal are the high quality, effective conversations our sales reps have with the Decision Maker. In this talk, we'll discuss how AI can work for you to supercharge rep feedback and coaching, and help you figure out what's working when you close deals.

Sales: Where’s the GOOD leads and accounts?
Marketing: You haven’t followed up on anything we have sent over!
Like two bickering spouses, it seems like marketing and sales just can’t get along and it seems like the only way to drive peace is filling your funnel with high quality top of funnel leads and accounts. But this might be a little easier said than done.
This session will cover how to identify and tackle sales and marketing misalignment, and how to maintain a relationship that enables both teams to work together to increase pipeline, as well as:
•How to spot the symptoms of misalignment;
•Tactics for becoming an aligned revenue team:
•How to structure outreach for top-of-the-funnel success; and
•Increasing efficiencies of sales and marketing by putting time and money towards the most likely to convert prospects.
Often B2B marketers will focus heavily on the generation aspect of lead generation and lose sight of what happens next. Generating new leads is one thing, but nurturing them to qualify themselves is what separates a lead in your funnel from a customer tied to revenue.
Join Ian Campbell, CEO, Mission Suite as he breaks down a lead generation and management process that generates results at the bottom of the funnel.
Spend an hour with George Kinder as he leads a group meditation and discusses how to continue developing a mindfulness practice for yourself. There will be time for Q&A and discussion.
