  • The Business Value Hierarchy:A strategic approach to cure underperformance Jan 17 2019 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Christopher Ryan, The B2B Revenue Growth Expert
    Your mission is not just to generate more awareness, leads and revenue, but also to increase the financial and brand equity value of your company. To do this, you need to rise above the noise in the marketplace and truly understand your company’s place in the customer’s widening array of expectations.
    Step one is to uncover the current value of your offerings to your customers and prospects (the existing state). Truth here is an absolute must.
    You then need to protect and enhance your marketplace value by either being a top player (perhaps “the” top player) in your value category or better yet, launching yourself into a higher-value and more profitable category. Topics include:
    How to find your current place on the Value Hierarchy Scale.

    How to identify and close your value gap.
    Your best options for moving up the value scale.

    You will learn how to:

    1.Measure where you are in relation to your competition.
    2.Achieve lasting competitive differentiation
    3.Increase the financial and brand-equity value of your company.
    4.Become a leader in your existing value category or catapult to the next category
  • How to Sell at “C” Level Jan 15 2019 10:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Steve Hall, The “C” Level Sales Expert
    One of the biggest things that impacts sales productivity is insufficient access to senior decision makers – the C Suite – and one of the key things I get asked when I’m coaching my clients to help with their sales development is “how do we get access to people at “C” Level?”
    There’s little benefit in having a pipeline filled with deals where you’re engaged with people too low in the food chain but that’s what a lot of standard prospecting creates – meetings with people who may influence the decision but don’t who sign off on it.
    One of the best ways to impact sales acceleration is to start at the top – at executive or “C” level – and retain access while also working at lower levels in the organization.
    Knowing which organizations to approach and which people in those organizations to target is aided by effective sales and marketing alignment.
    This talk covers which organizations to target, which senior executives to target, what they care about, how to reach them, how to create a message that will compel them to talk to you, what to do when you get that critical first meeting and how to follow up.


    You will learn:

    1.Why you should sell to “C” Level
    2.What “C” Level executives do and don’t care about
    3.Who to approach and how to approach them
    4.How to prepare for, conduct & follow up an initial meeting
