We are pleased to invite your participation in a group of three Roundtable sessions with  registration date option to better accommodate busy schedules. The areas addressed include:  Healthcare, Financial Services and Business Transformation. Background and registration details are presented below: 

                                          Making the 'Innovation Sale'

Selling: today's priority for CEOs.  Innovation: a top concern of your clients and prospects. 

A tightening business climate has driven "sales productivity' to the top of the CEOs' list of concerns.  Your prospects - faced with global competition - are turning to innovation as a lever.  How do you sell to customers whose prime heartburn is "how do I innovate fast enough?" 

In a business world dominated by change, what do you need to do to provide value to customers with an 'innovation fixation'?  What do we need to know about the changing dynamics of our customers?

In 2009, the biggest risk facing our customers is innovating  --  changing their business models. Whether you are targeting healthcare or financial institutions, all of these sectors need to change their internal infrastructures in order to grow market share and reduce their costs.

The sessions are uniquely designed by Mandrake, CATAAlliance, Helix Commerce and  powered by The Access Group to help technology and consulting groups to come together in a unique peer-to-peer conversation to discuss 'beyond the ordinary' what new strategies can we put in place in order to help our customers transform their business?

Your participation will enable you to:

- Network with executives who are selling into your prospective and existing customers
- Uncover hidden strategies that will enable you to break into your target customer base
- Share ideas in how to create best practices beyond regular 'good execution' or 'good   listening skills'

++ Action Item: Please pick the Roundtable conversation which best aligns to your sales target and register for the limited seats we have available. Please note this is invitation only to VP of Sales, VP of Marketing, VP Business Development and Practice Executives.

 Location: Yonge and St.Clair
 
Cost: $25 per Roundtable session.
