Title: What's New in B2B Sales? A Management Briefing on Best Practices & Emerging Trends


Speaker: Bob Kelly, Goizueta Adjunct Professor


Few corners of the B2B enterprise have seen more disruption and change than the sales function. Consider just the past five years – a period which saw sales forces roiled by a global pandemic, then an uncertain recovery with accompanying swings in demand and supply. Adding to these challenges are tightened access to capital, an uncertain labor market, and the accelerated impact of AI. These factors are poised to disrupt sales organizations in unforeseen ways that many firms haven't yet anticipated. Join us as Goizueta adjunct professor Bob Kelly reviews the most important sales force trends, management practices, and research insights for high performing organizations to thrive amidst the changes and position your sales force for success.

Imagine the ability to duplicate , through AI, a critical decision made in your company and scale it so others could learn and benefit from it. Join us to explore the ways in which Karl Kuhnert, Professor of the Practice in the Organization and Management, is employing AI and machine learning as powerful tools in teaching us to make better ethical decisions. 

Serious, intelligent, commanding respect, charismatic, influencer....these are just a few words one might hear associated with the word 'gravitas.'  What role does gravitas play in leadership and how might you exhibit gravitas in an authentic way?  Join Allison Gilmore, Allison Gilmore, Director of The Goizueta Business School PhD Program and Founder, DuMore Improv as we demystify this allusive component of executive presence.  

Over the past decade we’ve seen how “one-size-fits-all” marketing has gone out the window as brands embrace multicultural marketing initiatives to help reach consumers who’ve often been ignored.  Join us as Ivan Ibarra, Multicultural Campaign Strategist, discusses how brands can build brand loyalty with multicultural audiences, while avoiding being perceived as performative or superficial. 

Corporate disclosure communicates financial health, promotes culture and brand, and engages a broad spectrum of stakeholders. Warren Buffet's annual letters to Berkshire Hathaway shareholders showcase corporate American writing at its best, featuring memorable quotes like “Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful," and “When it's raining gold, reach for a bucket, not a thimble."  Such writings are crafted with a human audience in mind.  However, what if 90% of the corporate filings these days are read by bots?  

As AI advances, concerns grow about its impact on jobs, with predictions suggesting automation could eliminate 73 million jobs by 2030, but 85% of the jobs that will exist by 2030 haven’t even been invented yet. The transition emphasizes shifting from mundane tasks to creative, collaborative work. This evolving landscape suggests a future where AI enriches the workplace and society. In this session, Dr. Garg will share his framework to measure if your business is AI-ready, and how AI will transform the way we work. 

Do you ever feel like you are not good enough, doubt your abilities, or worry about being exposed as a fraud, despite your proven success and competence as a leader? You are not alone. Imposter Syndrome affects an estimated 70% of people at some point in their lives. And while it impacts all genders; women often experience it more frequently than men. Robin Mladinich, Executive Coach and Founder of Inspire 2 Impact Leadership Group, will provide you with practical strategies, tools, and insights to:

- Understand the origins and impact of Imposter Syndrome.
- Identify common signs and symptoms affecting leaders across all industries and sectors.
- Learn effective techniques to challenge negative thoughts, celebrate achievements, build self-confidence and advocate for yourself.
- Embrace your authentic self, overcome self-doubt, and unlock your full potential as a confident and successful leader.

When operating a business in an active real estate market, especially in high demand cities with large corporate presence and a growing number of relocations, organizations must rethink their space needs and clearly understand the leverage or opportunity that exists in securing that space. Join Hussain Moosajee to gain insights from meaningful metrics and market indicators, to help your organization negotiate productively and make informed decisions about what is likely to be a sizable expense for your business. Through this webinar, you will gain insights on key factors - office product type, emerging trends in office space utilization, and occupier considerations, in the context of highly active Atlanta, DC and NYC markets.

Navigating change is the hardest task that leaders and managers face today. To succeed at this task, they need to master an essential process that only few have championed: discovery as an inventive process. This webinar will equip you with actionable strategies to integrate discovery into your work and life. Join us as Karen Golden-Biddle shares her extensive research and compelling stories to illuminate the importance of discovery, and how leaders tap its creative power for positive change.

Miscommunication is common in the workplace, often distorting messages like in the telephone game. Clint Padgett, CEO/President of Project Success will uncover the  differences between communication, conversation, and dialog, and how these elements can build a high-functioning team.
