2021 Virtual Education Conference

3rd Annual Event

9:05 AM - 10:05 AM

COVID-19 has rocked what had appeared to be a nearly invincible economy; one associated with substantial job growth, multi-decade lows in unemployment, sturdy compensation increases, robust retail sales, low inflation, and strong financial market performance. Underneath that strong performance, however, was a set of fragilities that have been exposed by the pandemic.

This webinar speaks to our current economic circumstances, how difficult things are likely to become over the foreseeable future, and the contours of the brisk recovery to come thereafter.

12:35 PM - 1:35 PM

When dealing with clients from all walks of life, it is so important to respect them. Respecting clients does not mean compromising on who you are. Our best resource as a salesperson is our genuine self. As humans, we can sense when someone isn’t be truthful and honest with us. If your clients feel like they can’t trust you, they’re not going to be your clients for much longer.

We can’t say every thought we have at work, but that doesn’t mean we have to stop being genuine and authentic. Having opinions and beliefs is what draws clients to you as a salesperson—not an in-genuine personality. Learn to enhance client relationships with openness and a deeper trust.
