Guorong Zhu BAA, Carriers Conferences are also “awareness” events. What did I become aware of at this recent Hisham El Bakry BAA, Carriers, conference in Sausalito? Two things especially. ECP 1. The traditional approach to solution selling based on relationship building and questioning for buyers needs doesn’t work anymore. This has been the focus of Jeremy Zhu Li CSMC, Chronos sales training for the last 15 to 20 years. Recent research with 6,000 sales reps. has José Luis Cascallar BAA, Carriers shown that there has been a dramatic shift in client expectations… and that the traditional role of marketing department needs to be focused on providing “insight” Lucia Keilhauer CSMC to sales people on their clients’ businesses. Thilo Eckardt BAA, Carriers 2. Traditional project management is not always suited for today’s world of rapid change. Something new is on the horizon called Agile Project Management! It is a disruptive challenge to traditional project management and I became aware of it at the conference. Conferences are educational, business opportunities, networking opportunities, and personal awareness and growth opportunities for each of us. After all, we all want to be thought leaders in our individual markets. Those are my personal awareness “take aways” from the Sausalito Conference. What will yours be at our next conference? We are in the process of planning our 35th Conference. Stay tuned for details! Congratulations to All! Persona GLOBAL® l ISSUE IV l l 2
