Leadership comes in many forms, but your passion for guiding a team toward shared successes is what matters most in the leadership role you play within your organization. Come together with other leaders in the sales and business development industry to collaborate by having open discussions that will enhance the way you manage your teams, accelerate growth and hitting targets, and develop strategic plans aimed at ensuring high performance.


This month’s topic: SALES NEGOTIATION

Facilitated by: Gord Smith, BBA, MBA, Founder and Managing Partner, ALTA Consulting

DATE: Wednesday, September 2nd, 2020 3:00pm – 4:30pm

Dealing with purchasing. Buyers icing you with manipulative tactics. Tricky objections. Trying to focus the discussion on value versus price.

Nothing about sales negotiation is easy, and it often ends with you accepting a deal at unfavorable terms, losing at the last minute when the deal falls apart, or losing to competition when you shouldn’t have.

If you want to avoid these challenges, and win sales at favorable terms and pricing, you need a proven framework for negotiation success.

Through an open facilitated discussion, reflect on Gord’s learnings and learn how your team can succeed in today’s selling environment.

Who should join: VP sales, sales managers, business development managers, sales & business development executives, leadership roles within sales and business development for your organization.
