5 Important Things You'll Learn

  1. How to build a process for products or services
  2. How to make it part of every sales engagement
  3. Real life examples of how one company uses these processes and tools to sell more
  4. How to make it self serve for customers
  5. Whether to build your own tools or buy / subscribe to cpq software

Make this the year that you don't lose business because you can't move fast enough!
