Webinar Registration: Does Top Management Help (or Hinder) Your Strategic Account Managers?

APRIL 21, 2021 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM   Central Time (US and Canada)

Senior management can play a major role in in supporting strategic/key account managers as they seek to grow business with the firm’s most important current and potential customers. The presenters will identify five separate roles that senior managers can play; while some roles will have a positive impact on the work of their SAMs/KAMs, others will do the opposite.

Webinar participants will leave with these three takeaways:
1.Senior managers can be very effective in supporting strategic/key account managers.
2.Senior management involvement should be well designed.
3.Uncontrolled senior management involvement can have negative consequences.

After attending this webinar, we recommend you audit the involvement your senior managers have with strategic/key account customers, and then take appropriate action.
