Tim Riesterer of Corporate Visions to Speak at Independent Research Firm's Sales Enablement Forum

Session to Highlight How Whiteboarding is Essential to Successful B2B Sales Conversations

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporate Visions, Inc., the leading sales and marketing messaging company, today announced that its Chief Strategy and Marketing Officer, Tim Riesterer, will speak at Forrester Research, Inc.'s Sales Enablement Forum to be held in Scottsdale, Ariz., March 4-5, 2013. Riesterer's session will focus on how to use whiteboarding to create successful business-to-business (B2B) sales conversations.

With the theme "Accelerating Revenue in a Changed Economy," the forum will discuss the importance of communicating value from a buyer's point of view, and how to market, sell and support clients and prospective customers in a "do more with less" economy. The forum will also provide attendees with new, practical Forrester frameworks and tools that will have an immediate impact on attendees' bottom lines.

Details on Riesterer's presentation are as follows:

  • Date: Monday, March 4, 2013
  • Time:  1:50-2:20 p.m. MT
  • Presentation Title: "Whiteboarding on Purpose: The Key to a Successful Sales Conversation"
  • Presentation Details: Some 87 percent of companies still use traditional presentation technologies or no visuals at all in sales conversations. Yet, recent research has indicated a correlation between the use of whiteboarding for visual storytelling and improved sales performance. How can your company integrate whiteboarding as a purposeful part of your sales enablement approach? This presentation will show you how to pre-build whiteboards that equip your salespeople to answer the two big questions in every sales cycle: "Why change?" and "Why you?"

"In today's economy, companies are looking for the most effective ways to grow their sales pipelines, and using whiteboards to improve sales conversations should be one of those critical strategies," said Riesterer. "However, in a recent survey that Corporate Visions conducted, only 13 percent of salespeople were found to use an interactive writing surface such as a whiteboard to support their customer conversations. I look forward to discussing how whiteboards – when created on-purpose for various stages of the buying cycle – can ensure that salespeople will deliver a simple, repeatable message to move their customers and prospects to make a purchase decision."
