This Sales & Marketing Peer-to-Peer session will be a follow- up deep dive into the content that was covered during our September 17th Lunch & Learnwith Hamilton marketing agency: Thinkr.

The Lunch & Learn session identified how a start-up or existing small business can leverage digital marketing technologies to further integrate sales and marketing. Doing so allows participants to make better business decisions, deliver a higher level of customer experience, and increase sales.

This follow-up session is designed to challenge participants to critically analyze their own businesses across marketing and sales functions, to help participants identify pain points and overcome them.

This session will include:

  • The Critical Analysis – Challenge Worksheet
