Selling in the Age of Distraction - Jason Angelos, Senior Managing Director, Accenture

For sales teams, distraction is an unintended consequence of sales productivity investment: overlapping sales imperatives, an abundance of disconnected data, and multitudes of tools, processes and policies. It’s time to pivot from productivity to outcomes. Chief sales officers (CSOs) have spent billions on tools to improve sales performance. Yet, sales productivity has declined over the past five years. We believe an inability to focus is largely to blame.

Sales agents, sales leaders and customers now contend with different and growing sources of distraction. Too much information, too many choices, competing sales imperatives, and too many tools, processes and policies are taking their toll. By applying actionable insights and Outcome Selling techniques, CSOs can help cut through the noise and, in the process, shape sellers’ behaviors, as well as the outcomes customers demand and deserve.

Channel Success - Lessons Learned - George Dziedzic, VP Partner Performance Management Practice - Zyme

Sales through the global indirect channel are set to increase for tech companies over the next two years, according to recent UK & Nordics channel research findings (Channel Data Management Barometer Report 2017). However, the report highlights that channel confidence is being undermined because of issues such as: lack of standardization of channel incentives strategies, expanding complexities of global partner networks, and limited resources to effectively overcome such challenges. George Dziedzic has over 30 years’ international experience in leading channel sales growth for clients. He has built a strong reputation for delivering channel sales excellence to some of the world’s leading tech brands like IBM, Cisco, SAP, Intel and Dell. George’s presentation will draw on this extensive experience and He’ll share a framework of best practices that help businesses optimise their performance as the reliance on the channel to deliver revenue continues to grow.
