According to a CMO Council study, “Closing the Gap: Understanding the Sales and Marketing Alignment Imperative,” some 46 percent of sales and marketing executives felt that in order to maximize sales across the organization, the level of action on opportunities needed to be boosted, and the speed to action needed to be accelerated.
Despite this clear call to work smarter and faster, sales productivity improvements have been slow to materialize. According to CSO Insights, only 33 percent of a sales representative’s time is spent actively selling. Not only is sales struggling to push away the inefficiencies to build those critical relationships, but it can also be hard to actually get sales teams up and running. According to Accenture, 42.5 percent of sales reps take 10 months or longer to become productive enough to contribute to company goals.
So where and how can businesses empower the front line while sparking profitability through accelerated sales productivity? Are there new calls to action that sales leaders can respond to in an effort to streamline inefficient processes, eliminate waste and remove friction from sales engagement? How are smart organizations growing at scale while remaining compliant and error-free in their engagements with customers and prospects?
These are just some of the issues that the CMO Council, in partnership with Oracle, will explore in a one-hour, interactive webcast focused on productivity, profitability and opportunities to foster revenue. Joining the discussion will be experts and market leaders in sales and operational effectiveness to share where and how they are maximizing profitability while empowering sales teams and resources to work in a more nimble, agile and lucrative environment.

COPD is a widespread, costly and largely preventable condition which affects over 300 million people worldwide and is recognised as the ‘third-leading’ cause of death in most countries. Adherence rates among patients with the condition are seen to be low, despite evidence that shows appropriate use of medication and sensible lifestyle changes can reduce mortality by 60% and hospital admissions by as much as 42%.
Given the proven increase in quality of life when adherence occurs, and yet the persistence of non-adherence globally, there is clearly a disconnect. So why is poor self-management so prevalent and what can we do about it?
In conjunction with self-management and behavioural change specialists Atlantis Healthcare, we present a multi-stakeholder webinar and debate, which will combine real world patient needs with expertise from healthcare, pharma and patient advocates to look at the challenges to successful self-management/adherence and ascertain what the industry can do to better support patients in achieving optimum outcomes.
The webinar is comprised of 15 minutes of presentation and 40 minutes of live debate - which you can participate in, sending questions to the panel.
A live tweetchat (#rwCOPD) will follow the webinar, enabling full interaction across all stakeholders to further delve into this topic and explore some of the issues and solutions raised during the webcast.
This is the second webinar within the Patient Insights Summarized series.
Your panel for this event is:
Ana-maria Arboleda, Managing Director, Atlantis Healthcare Spain
Dr Joan Escarrabill, Director of the Master Plan for Respiratory Diseases, Ministry of Health (Catalonia)
Prof. John Weinman, Head of Health Psychology, Atlantis Healthcare
