Everythings Your CEO Wants You To Do At Your Annual Sales MeetingWith the New Year upon us you may have already started packing for your company’s annual sales meeting. This event is meant to bring the entire sales team together to share organizational goals, new initiatives, upcoming products, and basic best practices from the field.

You would think that most salespeople are excited for this event. It is a great time to see colleagues, rub elbows with leadership, and find out about goals and initiatives for the new year. However many sales people don’t feel this way.

And although that is a valid concern, an annual sales meeting is meant to do one thing. Help the entire company and sales team make more money.

This is why massive resources are used to make the meeting as productive as possible.

Today you’ll learn how to get the most out of your annual sales meeting, impress your CEO, and get through all those presentations unscathed.
