The speakers and subject were chosen to be particularly relevant to key account managers building and maintaining business in the current rapidly changing environment.

Sales tips from an advertising guy: Stephen Mangham

Former Ogilvy Saatchi and Saatchi and Saatchi ad man Stephen Mangham shared his insightful views of the KAM market from the fresh perspective of someone who had a very successful career in advertising observing the companies that get things right and those that do not.

Marketing is “the art of satisfying consumer needs.” It is vital to avoid the “commodity trap” by understanding the value your offerings bring to customers and defining your segments by their behaviour and circumstances rather than demographics. This allows you to focus on the specific value that you bring and get away from competing on price and product specifications with every other company on the internet.
