At Noon Eastern Time on February 22, I'll be participating in a very exciting roundtable discussion about the future of professional selling. It's something I've been talking about for awhile now, and even have passion for. I hope you'll be able to join us. Here's the information from the organizer (and my friend), Jonathan Farrington:
"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, not the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change" - Charles Darwin
Whatever got you where you are today will not be sufficient to keep you there. A rapidly changing environment is the regular background against which organizations must develop. Change is continuous and will become more rapid as we move forward over time. The one constant that we can rely upon in commercial life is change - everything is changing, everyday. We can choose to embrace the changes, adapt, and thrive, or we can resist, and risk extinction. The questions we should all be asking ourselves right now are:
- What will the sales landscape really look like in five years time?
- Who will survive?
- How will they survive?
- Who will perish?
