Details: As the pandemic turns to an endemic and B2C dynamics influence B2B activity, chief sales officers (CSOs) face an extraordinary number of previously unseen disruptions. These disruptions have created a new era indelibly marked by shifts in work styles, social norms and an ever-increasing reliance on technology. Tomorrow’s winners will be those who proactively manage disruptions, allowing them to transform and adapt their organizations to win the competition for talent, balance effectiveness with efficiency and drive revenue growth.
At the Gartner CSO & Sales Leader Conference, sales leaders and their teams will learn about the latest research sales strategy, sales enablement, strategic planning, lead management/demand generation, manager effectiveness, key account management and digital business transformation.
The conference agenda will center on four main tracks, focused on helping sales leaders overcome their biggest challenges and priorities today:
- Drive Commercial Acceleration with Innovative Strategies and Execution
- Modernize Enablement for the Future of Selling
- The Future of Sales Operations: Powering End-to-End Revenue Growth
- Leading Across the Commercial Coalition
Opening Keynote: Sustaining Growth through Unrelenting Disruption
Constant change is overwhelming today's sellers, undermining sales effectiveness. In response, sales leaders have sought to provide greater support and direction. However, that support comes with unintended consequences and surprisingly high costs. This session will explain why and what to do differently to predictably boost sales performance in an unpredictable world.

Scott Collins, Managing Vice President, Gartner
