“Even as the economy recovers from a recession, it is highly unlikely that companies will resume previous spending and operational levels,” said Gardner. “Business models are changing, as such, developing strategies to generate sales will be an even greater challenge requiring a solutions-based approach, as opposed to a non-flexible offering. Going forward, there will be a need for complete organizational alignment and sufficient resources available to ensure that sales and marketing efforts are as effective as possible. This panel will be an excellent opportunity to explore best practices to identify, pursue and ultimately, secure new customers.”
