11.30am 20th August - L'Aqua Sydney

B2B Sales Symposium

Format – delegates to the Head Of Sales Symposium 2024 will attend a ‘half day’ of four educational sessions and two networking sessions. Speakers include experienced B2B sales leaders, industry experts, best selling authors and international speakers. The event is fully catered at a five-star venue with a sit down lunch, afternoon tea, networking drinks and canapes.

Purpose – as economic conditions change and competition battles to secure market share – winning a sale becomes more challenging than before. On average, more than half of sales professionals do not consistently meet targets. Poor performance places pressure on the individual as well as management and the business as a whole – when revenue targets are not achieved.

Learning and development: (1) Implement new sales strategies and tactics (2) Understand the latest trends and behaviours (3) Increase customer acquisition, retention and growth (4) Develop, lead or enrol in a high-performing sales team.

Venue L’Aqua offers a rooftop setting and uninterrupted views over Darling Harbour with floor to ceiling windows making it an impressive venue for business events. Delegates experience premier service in the five-star function spaces with balconies to enjoy the waterfront views of Darling Harbour. L’Aqua has direct access to Wilson Parking facilities moments from the venue. Wheelchair accessibility is available.
