11th Why People Buy.
  Presenter: Lauren Valentine, Sandler Training
  noon to 1:00 pm

Let’s face it. Today’s buyers are well educated, savvy, and they’ve done their research on you & your competition before they’ve even decided to speak with you. As a result, it’s no longer enough to just know your products & services inside and out.

In this high energy session, we reveal what a salesperson must uncover to consistently close profitable business with ease.  You’ll be surprised at what you discover about the real reasons why people buy and why traditional tactics and strategies are actually working against you.
