The barriers to make a sale will be as familiar to Gen Z seller as they will to the wily veterans: price, the gatekeeper, the purchasing agent. While the names haven't changed, the people and circumstances behind them have.

That's the message BOTH of our guests today have for the selling world. Tom Williams and Tom Saine are the authors of The Seller's Challenge: How Top Sellers Master 10 Deal Killing Obstacles in B2B Sales. Williams and Saine provide solutions for every type of salesperson that are practical, realistic and based upon the tactics of high performers. Few people study the art and science of sales like these two. 

Sales fundamentals remain largely the same but the application of those fundamentals has shifted as more stakeholders get involved and sales cycles lengthen. The status quo is resulting in increased price demands and commoditization. Our guests today are here to give you the tools to battle back against procurement and secure more deals that work for you and your company.
