“It is time for sales management executives to embrace agility and flexibility. These are times of constant transition. If we remain rigid and pursue rigid goals, we will become victims of change.”

Gerhard Gschwandtner, publisher of Selling Power magazine, today announced agenda highlights for the Sales Leadership Conference to take place on Monday, April 19, 2010 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Las Vegas.
The Sales Leadership Conference offers sales management leaders a uniquely collaborative and dynamic environment where they will learn to identify and implement management techniques that improve sales performance, sharpen executive leadership skills, and produce results in a tough economy.
Kodak CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett will share the story of how Kodak has worked to reposition its iconic brand for success in the new millennium after missing the transition into the digital age. Hayzlett encourages sales management leaders to leverage social media as a business tool. He frequently makes strategic public appearances (including in The Celebrity Apprentice with Donald Trump).
John Osborn, President and CEO of BBDO New York, will engage in a candid Q&A to explore how business leaders can engage customers and employees to cocreate win/win relationships.

Conference host Gerhard Gschwandtner says Hayzlett and Osborn are delivering necessary and timely messages. “It is time for sales management executives to embrace agility and flexibility.
