−Selling 101: Sales Process Essentials @ ReadySet! Offices10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Who Should Attend?
Small business owners and start ups who want to learn tried and true selling techniques that work.
Effective selling is essential to every business or institution, large or small. Selling is really persuading, which means motivating others to do things with/or for us. It is the motor that makes every business function effectively.
Sales is everyone’s responsibility, and everyone is a “seller”. It includes everyone and all departments in the organization.That includes employees who “sell” themselves to their bosses and peers to gain promotions, respect and cooperation. It encompasses the CEO who sells investors, members of the board and employees on a corporate vision
Most people, however, don’t know how to sell. They’re afraid of selling because they fear rejection. Most people fear sales presentations for that reason. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that selling is a skill like any other. It can be learned and perfected through training and practice. This workshop will provide the tools to make you an effective persuader, or salesperson.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Define techniques to lessen anxiety of sales presentations and discussions
- Manage the sales discussion, using specific methods
- Show your customers what your products can do for them(benefits) based on product features
- Close the sale effectively

−Roxane Gay: Not That Bad @ Stephen A. Schwarzman Building7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
In her latest book, Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, Roxane Gay brings together an incredible array of women to share first-person essays that directly tackle rape, assault, and harassment. The book asks what it means to live in a world where women have to measure the harassment, violence, and aggression they face, and where they are “routinely second-guessed, blown off, discredited, denigrated, besmirched, belittled, patronized, mocked, shamed, gaslit, insulted, bullied” for speaking out. Gay will speak out at LIVE on a topic that is growing more timely by the minute.
