Win Corporate Clients: Disruptive Strategies to Eliminate Your Biggest Sales Frustrations & Grow Your Business

Just because people repeat a refrain again and again, doesn’t make it true. Case in point: these days, everyone is talking about unprecedented uncertainty. Don’t believe them. There’s no more uncertainty today than there was before the pandemic. And, if you’ve been paying attention, decision-makers today are behaving exactly as you would expect them to, given the circumstances. If you want to win more corporate and B2B clients, the key is to align your approach to how decision makers predictably think and behave — and ensure you’re always one step ahead of them. Especially, because today’s opportunity for diversity-certified enterprises and professional service providers is quite literally bigger than ever. Business leaders are increasingly looking to trusted external suppliers, service providers and niche experts to fill resource and knowledge gaps, bring bold thinking, and deliver innovative solutions to help them solve complex yet exciting challenges. In this content-rich session, Angelique Rewers, CEO and founder of BoldHaus, will arm you with three competitive edges you can immediately leverage to navigate the corporate buying table more successfully while also creating more transformative, results-driven solutions for your corporate customers. With these strategies in hand, you’ll be able to get to more decisions, have the right conversations and close more deals
