(PRWEB) October 19, 2017
Organizers of the Sales 3.0 Conference today announced the agenda for the upcoming Sales 3.0 Conference in Philadelphia on December 4. More details can be found at http://www.sales30conf.com/Philadelphia2017/about.html.
The agenda will focus on how B2B sales teams can compete and win in an era of automation and artificial intelligence. According to Sales 3.0 Conference host and Selling Power magazine founder Gerhard Gschwandtner, the B2B sales profession is experiencing “extreme disruption.”
“Sales leaders need to face the reality that the world is changing as we speak,” says Gschwandtner. “We don’t want to be disrupted…we want to own the disruption.”
With this in mind, Gschwandtner recommends that sales leaders immediately take steps to increase sales by 200 percent and cut headcount by 20 percent in the next two to three years.
“Companies are leveraging technology tools to pull in more revenue while also decreasing headcount,” says Gschwandtner. “We will see three million sales jobs disappear in the next 10 years as companies continue to adopt new technologies – like automation, AI, and cognitive computing – to accomplish simple and routine tasks currently being performed by humans.”
Other speakers will address these pressing challenges and offer expert advice on how to succeed.
Presentations at the Sales 3.0 Conference will include the following:
