This seminar is intended for business-to-business salespeople, sales managers and sales executives interested in learning more about selling to the executive suite.”

    Websites Speak Louder Than Words ,”
    with presenters Aaron Sloman and Ron Rogowski.Over the past decade, consumers have increasingly turned to digital media to get their news, connect with friends, and make sense of the world. As companies focus more on the Web, they need to differentiate themselves by going beyond just useful and usable experiences if they want to generate a lasting positive impression. Companies differentiate their digital experiences when they provide what users need, where they need it and in a way that establishes a brand personality. We call this “Intuitive Design.” Join these presenters for a discussion about intuitive design.”
