Join us for a very relevant discussion addressing how effective sales performers make use of resources such as solid sales processes, current application of technology, and quality content. Let’s discuss together how this rapidly changing business environment is impacting the sales profession and how we can capitalize on these changes.
Salespeople are certainly making more use of tech-based tools such as the Internet, mobile phones and social media. The question is to what degree do we actually use these tools to work through our sales process? Are we leveraging readily available technology as much as we are able?

The presenter of this discussion is Randy Meier:
Randy Meier has 15 years of sales experience ranging from inside sales, territory development, key account management, business development management and sales management. Randy is currently serving in the role of VP of Sales at Synergy Systems. Synergy Systems is a 40-year-old Systems Integrator focused on Industrial Combustion processes. Randy has also completed an MBA and a B.S. Degree in Business Management from Aurora University.
In this session Randy will address the following practices of:
• Better utilizing common tech-tools to sell more effectively.
• Utilizing technology more directly into the sales process.
• Determining how sales enablement can help provide improved results.
• Providing salespeople with the resources that buyers request.
• Having useful content for salespeople that can be shared to buyers.

This sales discussion will be interactive with a different live dynamic where the value is the room.
It will be an excellent opportunity to learn from one another. Don’t miss this session.

Please RSVP. Space is limited. For more information contact
or call 630-256-3182.
