The New Science of Emotionally Intelligent Selling - Bruce Lewolt Details Download
How much is guessing costing you each month?

Even though the right answers to the following questions propel a sale forward and the wrong answers kill a sale - most salespeople guess at the answers.

For this prospect:
1. What is the best rapport-building strategy?
2. Which emotional drivers should I focus on throughout the sales process?
3. How detailed should I be during the presentation?
4. What is the best way to deal with objections and the best way to close?
5. What do I naturally do (that I must not do) when dealing with this person?

In this session, you will learn how to use new research on human temperament and emotions to answer each of these questions. The result is a dramatic increase in your win rate that comes from personalizing selling to the temperament and driving motivations of each prospect.

Rethink What You Know: Why Conventional Sales Tactics are Shifting to Social - Andy Kellam Details Download

Join LinkedIn's Andy Kellam as he discusses the pitfalls of conventional sales tactics and ways that you can leverage social selling to increase pipeline, average sales price, and make quota.
SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER: The Greatest Secret In Sales - Judy Hoberman Details Download
Sales is one of the most highly paid and yet one of the most disliked professions. It’s what helps you pay your bills, affords you the lifestyle you want, gives you the opportunity to work with people to find solutions to their challenges, and sadly, it’s what most people hate to do.

So WHY don’t we like to sell? Does selling make us feel…inauthentic?

Some professionals can’t even bring themselves to call selling by its proper name. They call it "business development" or even "marketing". When what they really mean is selling!

Sales is about helping people. It’s about being more empathetic. It’s about building relationships and having your clients come back again and bringing their friends. Sales professionals in every industry want to know...what is the greatest secret in sales? Everyone in business and beyond is in sales (yes, everyone).

Once you know the secret, you just may change your tune.
