How to Use Brain Science and Whiteboard Visuals to Bust the Status Quo

Indecision and no decision are killing your opportunities. In fact, companies report that 50-80 percent of their pipeline ends with the customer choosing to stick with the status quo. That’s a lot of wasted time and effort resulting in revenue loss.

As a marketer, helping customers see the need for change, creating the urgency to do something different and clearly aligning yourself with the necessary solution demands you know a thing or two about decision-making science. This session will offer brand new research about how marketers can do two specific things to help their salespeople break through the status quo barrier and have successful customer conversations that lead to more closed deals. Attendees will leave knowing how to:
1) Create content that tells the “right stories” to identify prospects’ “unconsidered needs” and create urgency and uniqueness so they change and choose you.
2) Enable salespeople to use the “right skills” with whiteboard-style visuals (versus PowerPoint) so that their delivery is as different as their story.
