How Artificial Intelligence is Solving the Biggest Challenge in Sales - Dave Elkington Details Download
Training is important and so is hiring, but according to CSO Insights and InsideSales Labs they are not the biggest thing sales teams are struggling with--but you knew that already, right?

The biggest challenge across all of sales is BUILDING QUALIFIED PIPELINE and we see the effects of it every day, as only 53% of sales reps are hitting quota.

Sadly, the numbers show many sales leaders believe the way to solve this problem is adding more sales reps, but that solution is only making the problem worse.

What will make this problem go away…REALLY?

In this session, CEO and founder of InsideSales.com Dave Elkington describes why sales pipeline is the biggest problem in sales and what companies are doing to solve it.
Accountability and Impact - Guiding Managers to Develop, Retain, and Challenge Talent - Annie Matthews Details Download
Sales management continues to become a more and more complex profession. The balance of motivating, retaining and supporting different personalities and work habits against one common goal is never easy.

In this session, we will address the importance of accountability within sales leadership. Holding direct teams, and supporting resources, accountable to move the needle and achieve revenue goals. By opening up the discussion, we plan to have attendees share experiences - what has worked and what they have learned. Tackling everything from communication, trust, and collaboration, this session should extend far beyond using the traditional 'pep talk' to encourage sales pros to self-reflect.
Sales Enablement: How to Build a Coaching Culture - Joe Moriarty Details Download
Sales reps lose more than 80% of the information they were taught at traditional sales training within the first 90 days. Sales training, as we know it, is broken.

The solution is to move away from costly and ineffective in-person group training sessions, to one-on-one secure content and video-based training of individual reps.

In this session, we will discuss modern sales solution allowing managers to onboard reps quickly, easily, and assess reps’ skills, ramping them up faster to generate more revenue.

As a sales leader, focusing on star players is fun. Focusing on low performers feels heroic. But we often overlook the reps in the middle. The numbers show us that coaching up your top and bottom performers has limited upside, while the true growth lever lies in your middle 70%.

This session will cover strategies and tactics you can implement today to begin driving increased revenue from the middle 70% of your sales organization, equipping reps with the insights and inspiration they need to ramp from B player status to all-star performers.

How to Prevent Disengagement from your BDR Team: From BDRs to Managers - Michael Shoer Details Download
It's hard to dispute that the BDR role is one of the most difficult jobs in sales. Every day, BDRs make the decision to go to work, make 100+ activities, study their product, systems, profession, and industry in hopes of booking the 'right meeting' while also working to gain the education and development to continue progressing to get out of the role as fast as possible. It's a lot!

During this session, we'll discuss:
• How managers can identify disengagement early on
• A manager's role in coaching through disengagement
• How BDRs can successfully juggle high performance and development
• Ways BDRs can develop and take ownership of their career

Whether you run a sales team, or are a prospector, bring your notebooks. Your path to world domination starts here.

You Didn’t Follow Up… Again - The Journey to 100% Follow-Through Across Your Sales & Service Teams - Joshua Tillman Details Download
Conversations and connections are central to sales performance. Despite all of the information out there, sales teams are still not focusing on the metrics that matter most. A recent study by Salesforce concluded that 92% of all customer interactions still happen over the phone and the average salesperson only makes two attempts. According to SiriusDecisions, it takes an average of eight calls to reach a prospect.

Is poor performance the fault of the sales rep or have we overcomplicated the sales process? Are fractured systems and complex tasks causing reps to lose sight of the most vital part of selling — the connection.

DialSource CEO, Joshua Tillman will share how eliminating fractured systems and simplifying pre- and post-call tasks can improve sales rep performance and guarantee 100% follow-through within your organization.
