“The importance of revenue generation has never been more important to companies than it is in today's competitive yet sluggish market.

Our first forum on Social Selling Strategies is an example of pulling together world class leaders in this field to discuss this important issue," said Dr. Gary Selden, Associate Director of the CPS.
The AFPS provides businesses an opportunity to reach key decision makers within the Sales and Social Selling communities as well as tie their brand to other thought leaders in the industry.
