If you've tried hiring millennial's, you've probably realized you need a completely different strategy than you've used in the past. In fact, many companies are finding it difficult to grow because they simply can't hire and retain new sales talent. Sound familiar?  Join Tom Niesen, CEO of Acuity Systems,at this breakfast seminar and let his team of experts help you understand how to lead the next generation of sales people.

Session Overview

Tom Niesen - Culture

A companys culture is an invisible set of attitudes and behaviors that affect everything in the organization. In order to understand your sales culture, you must first understand your people and your business. Tom will be covering how millennial's differ from traditional sales people when it comes to motivation, coaching, compensation, and more, so you can build a successful culture around them.

L'areal Lipkins - Process

Unfortunately, many young salespeople lack the experience needed to be successful, but inconsistent sales results usually point to one thing- a missing or broken process. Lareal will explain how to build a process that specifically caters to millennial's, helping them manage their pipeline, better understand their prospects, and in the end, close more deals.

Who should attend?  CEO's, VP of Sales, Sales Directors, Owners, Sales leaders, sales managers, hiring managers and sales professionals who are serious about their sales success.
