RALEIGH, N.C. & SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--However long the COVID-19 crisis lasts, one thing is certain: the business repercussions will be felt for a very long time. That is why the founders of Stop the Sales Drop (STSD) decided to launch their organization with a five-day virtual summit, June 1-5—with continued support for attendees through the end of the year. The group’s goal is to help C-level execs, marketers and sales leaders to leverage this moment to create momentum in 2020 and beyond.
The live event will bring together more than 50 sales and marketing experts and C-suite executives to guide businesses with informational sessions, innovation labs and post-event follow-up that includes a personalized 30-day action plan for rebounding now—not in 18 months.
“We believe we can grow stronger if we grow together,” said STSD founder and CEO Eric Gruber. “That’s why we’ve created a sales and marketing peer group with a laser-focused purpose: to prepare for and succeed in the After-COVID-19—or AC—era. The discussion will kick off with a summit led by sales and marketing thought leaders, but that’s only the beginning.”
Added STSD co-founder Kristina Jaramillo: “After the summit, attendees will be matched with mentors for one-on-one strategy sessions that will result in a 30-day action plan for the attendee’s company. Then we will gather for virtual peer group meetings each week through the end of the year. All of this is included in the cost of the complete summit experience.”
Priced at $197 with online coupon code “Stimulus,” the complete summit experience includes pre-event workshops, full access to the summit, on-demand recordings, a post-event strategy session, a 30-day action plan and the weekly calls. Attendees can register for the summit for as little as $97 to receive access to all sessions and on-demand recordings, with the freedom to choose exactly which sessions they want to attend live and which to listen to later.
The keynote speaker for the event will be Roger Sanford, who exited his own startup digital agency, P3M, at $100 million at the age of 44. Sanford—who along with Gruber and Jaramillo is a STSD founder—will show how this unprecedented time is giving businesses a chance to reboot and create an even stronger future.
“Business will not be as it was in BC (Before COVID-19) times,” Sanford said. “STSD is not a one-time thing, it’s an all-time thing. Everything you will hear at the event, action planning and the peer support afterward, is all designed to help you do one thing: begin your rebound now—to make sure your business is poised for success when the dust has settled.”
Speakers include Lee Odden, CEO of TopRank Marketing; Tyler Lessard, vice president of marketing for Vidyard; Max Altschuler, vice president of marketing for Outreach; Matt Heinz, president of Heinz Marketing, Ardath Albee, vice president of marketing for Modus; Scott Barker, head of partnerships for Sales Hacker; Mark Zawacki; Carlos Hidalgo, chief strategy officer for DemandGen; and Scott Baradell, CEO of Idea Grove.
