CHELMSFORD, Mass.--()--Qvidian, the innovator in sales execution solutions, this week announced that Qvidian will be hosting a who’s who of industry leaders at their sixth annual Connect Conference in San Antonio, TX March 23-25, 2014. This year’s event represents the largest in the company’s history, and will feature many highly influential leaders in keynote presentations and sessions.

Scott Santucci, Director at the Alexander Group, formerly Research Director at Forrester Research’s Sales Enablement practice, will join Qvidian to present “Sales Content is the Answer, But What’s the Question?” Scott’s no nonsense style, and deep industry expertise will engage attendees and cover a variety of topics focusing on the importance of everyone’s contribution to the selling system.

Connie Podesta will keynote in a presentation entitled “Life Would be Easy if it Weren’t for Other People: Revolutionize Your Relationships”. Connie will mix laugh-out-loud humor, killer take-away strategies and her tell-it-like-it-is delivery to motivate attendees to start a personal revolution to succeed faster. Connie’s expertise in business and personal relationships makes her an ideal keynote speaker for this year’s conference.

Tamara Schenk from Miller Heiman will share strategies for refining your selling approach to be all about the customer. Another newcomer to the agenda is LIMRA, the leading research and consulting association for insurance and financial services companies worldwide, who will dive into how customer experience affects the outcome of any great proposal.

Customer led sessions include expert speakers from Verizon, Ellucian, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MN, Splunk, OpenText, Teknion, and Dell among others. For the first time, the Association for Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) will join the conference presenting “Career Growth & Development for Proposal Professionals.”

Dr. Tom Sant joins the conference for the 6th year and will present fresh new ideas on the power of personalization. In his session titled “Dynamic Personalization: Speaking the Buyer’s Language”, Tom will cover how to prepare relevant, persuasive and highly personalized selling content.

“We’re very pleased to have this incredible line up of industry thought leaders at this year’s conference,” said Christopher Faust, Chief Marketing Officer at Qvidian. “Attendees will gain insights into new approaches on how to change the way they think and act in order achieve greater success. It’s all about innovation and revolutionizing the what, how, and why of it, both personally and professionally.”

Qvidian has held the Connect conference for the last five years, bringing together professionals across a wide range of industries and company sizes from around the world.
