FIGURE IT OUT! Making Smart Decisions in a Dumbed-Down World

In today’s overwhelming workplace, we rely on technology to help us get more done at a faster rate, but are we also allowing to think for us? When it comes to making the tough decisions, you can’t afford to let your people navigate their way solely dependent on the menus in front of them. Figure it Out! Making Smart Decisions in a Dumbed-Down World is an engaging keynote presentation based on Bob Wendover’s newest book. You’ll leave this interactive session with strategies for enhancing the everyday decision making skills of everyone on your team.


Your long-term customers are being replaced by smart-phone-wielding digital natives who manage their time, tasks and purchasing with apps and mobile devices. Traditional sales relationships are being upended by these younger buyers who screen calls, avoid meetings, and demand catalogs, pricing and support at the touch of a screen. How has your team adapted to this new way of doing business? Business-to-Business Selling and the Emerging Generations will show your team how to sell to the most wired, skeptical, demanding, impatient, fun-loving customers in history! Learn what successful organizations have been doing when prospects refuse to connect in person. Walk away from this session with field-tested strategies for closing the deal the way this new generation does business.
