The Institute of Sales & Marketing Management (ISMM) has announced the line up for its annual conference Successful Selling. The conference that takes place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on 20th October will feature headline speaker Michael Portillo.
Former Conservative MP and Cabinet Minister Portillo will be delivering a speech on ‘The Importance of Selling in today’s Economy’ to help outline the sales professions contribution to the economy that is estimated at around £3 Trillion per year.
BBC journalist Alice Beer, who will be known to many from presenting consumer show Watchdog with Anne Robinson, will be presenting on ‘What makes an Ethical Sale?’ where her experiences exposing the wrong side of unethical business trading will help to bring light on the value of good sales practice.
As well as these keynote presentations, there will be plenty for any sales director, manager or professional to take away from the conference. Speakers will be giving away thought leadership that delegates will be able to implement immediately to improve their sales performance.
Presentations to help improve sales performance from leading sales speakers such as Gavin Ingham, Sean McPheat, Don Hutson, Sharon Drew Morgen and Dr Graeme Coddrington will ensure the immediate value to anyone attending the conference.
Stephen Wright, Commercial Director of the ISMM, commented ‘We are delighted to announce the line up for this year’s Successful Selling, the importance of the sales profession is growing among UK business, and the addition of Michael Portillo to the line-up helps to demonstrate the importance of our profession to the political scene’
’the line-up will ensure that every delegate will be able to go away from the conference with new skills and learning to immediately help increase their companies sales performance. The addition of our break-out sessions also gives delegates the opportunity to attend thought leading seminars on areas they may also have a particular interest in, such as Social Networking or Negotiation. This year’s Successful Selling promises to be our best annual conference ever!”
