Keynote: Where Will Your Profits Come from Tomorrow?
Peter Muir, President of Bizucate, Inc., will kick off the show with a keynote address that takes attendees through key focus areas to help in identifying potentially profitable avenues for organizations in today's marketplace.
"As we look into the future of communications and how we will generate increased profit," Muir noted, "there are basically two ways to make it happen: cut costs and sell more. Selling 'for more' has an even greater appeal. But how can we make the sale and charge more when most customers are asking for discounts? This session will show professionals how to do just that."
Ryan added, "Peter is a natural choice for our 2014 keynote address because of his keen ability to closely track the pulse of the industry. His talent of helping companies stay on the cutting edge with innovative strategies and techniques, make this session a must-attend for those looking for future growth and stability."
