Thinking big works best when backed by a solid sales strategy.
As the saying goes, “with great risk, comes great reward” and choosing a bold sales model for your business could mean the difference between sustainable growth and falling flat.
Enterprise sales, the process of attaining large contracts involves long sales cycles, multiple decision-makers and is associated with bigger risk.

James and Melissa will explain how they have navigated extended sales cycles, mastered the necessary relationship management skills and what can be the tipping point for closing those sizable deals that can make all the difference to your venture.
