The Business Development Roundtable and Marketing Roundtable presents...

Driving Revenue with Sales & Marketing Alignment

Yes, CEOs like well-designed websites. They still enjoy creative ad campaigns and love positive media coverage.

You know what they really, really like? Revenue.

The benefits of aligned sales and marketing teams are significant. That’s why the VP of Marketing and the VP of Sales now sit on the same side of the conference room table in well-run organizations. But sometimes the roles and responsibilities of the sales and marketing teams aren't clearly defined in a way that leads to success across both teams. Join us for an interactive panel discussion to define what alignment looks like, in order to:

•Drive revenue growth
•Retain customers
•Expand your customer base
