How to Guarantee a Decision Maker Meeting When Selling to the Government

Sales and business development professionals who work in the government market find it extremely difficult to meet with the decision makers. Ever since 9/11, government agencies at all levels have instituted iron-clad security measures to stop people from entering government buildings without specific appointments. If you plan to build your business in the federal, state or local government markets and win government contracts, it is critical to meet with decision makers and build strong relationships because people do business with people they know and trust. How do you get an appointment if you cannot get in?

This OnDemand Webinar will help every sales and business development professional find the right decision makers, get past the gatekeepers, plan for and obtain that meeting, and ultimately build lasting relationships that foster higher sales and growth. This program will cover the best practices, appropriate and inappropriate tactics and a little-known, but straightforward process guaranteed to get you in front of the decision makers. By the end of the session, you will understand what is different about this market, and how to plan for and execute a successful decision maker meeting.
