PCamp Austin: Please weigh in with questions and suggestions
Hi everyone: I will be attending and hopefully presenting at PCamp Austin this weekend, and I would love to get input from our readers about specific questions on the topics I have proposed.
Here are my session descriptions. Please use the comments to provide suggestions and pose questions that you think I should include in my session. My sessions are always very interactive, and I use input like this to shape the content and direction. I consider myself a coach and facilitator of discussion, not a presenter.
If you are coming to Austin, please drop me a line or comment below and let’s hook up!
This is an interactive session with a set of “power tools” that will help Product Owners/Managers/Marketers improve sales performance for B2B products. I will provide an analytical approach to review product performance in the sales channel, identify constraints, conduct focused research, and target initiatives for improvements.
I will also provide suggestions on how to contact buyers even if your management will not permit it. The session will be interactive and topics can be shaped by participants. Bring your questions and tough problems.
Creating Reference Customers: Getting beyond the same 5 success stories [Intermediate | Expert]
Every marketing and sales organization depends on reference customers. Furthermore, customer referenceability is a great indicator of the health of your customer base, and ability to increase revenue through maintenance and upsell. Yet too many companies chase the same 5 or 10 reference customers and fail to build a base of referenceability.
This interactive session will present a method for VPs, Directors, and bold Product Managers to proactively build a referenceable customer base, and hold the organization accountable.
Thanks for your input!
