Strategic Thinking for SAM Success:  Putting the “Strategic” Back in “Strategic Account Management” 

11 March 

16:30 – 18:00 

Successful SAMs are seen as trusted advisors to customers and able to engage strategically with senior executives. This requires thinking more broadly, creatively, and deeply about business risks and their causes, about opportunities for expansion and innovation, and about the broad and complex business landscape in which your customers operate. This highly interactive workshop provides practical frameworks and tools to enhance SAMs’ abilities to think and operate strategically, build credibility with executives, and provide strategic insights to customers.
