Feature Presentation

A Different Kind of Debate -- Marketing vs. Sales Featuring Motorola Solutions

Just days after the presidential election and when you thought the debating was done we bring you a new kind of debate. See our "candidates" Marketing & Sales go head to head on the important issues around B2B. Nationally renowned speaker, strategist and author Tim Riesterer will moderate the discussion and keep everyone on topic. Learn how both sides of the sales and marketing equation can use their points of view, reach across the aisle and move the business agenda forward more successfully regardless of their partisan agenda. 

What You'll Learn:
• How B2B marketing and sales can work together to accomplish more with less
• Strategies to help marketing and sales support each other for more mutual success
• The important issues for both "parties" and how understanding helps both perform better
• Looking at the new buying paradigm and how to market and sell to the expectations of today's B2B decision makers.
