Customer Engagement that Drives Revenue

What the Best Do Differently

Here is what we know…  today’s economy is strikingly different than it was before. Yet, we approach our customers the same way we have been for years and expect to have increased revenue. In many cases, the sales approach that we are comfortable with was brought to life in 1970. It is similar to expecting Siri to give you directions while using a rotary phone. 

In this presentation, Kate Burda brings a pragmatic and proven approach to customer engagement that has worked to accelerate revenue within multi-national companies as well as small startups. She and her associates are fanatical about helping teams achieve their future vision. She will show you how to realize yours by elevating the level of play of sales, marketing, and pricing teams.

Check out this video that provides insight into Kate’s methodology.
