“Focus to Grow – Find the leverage inside your business to accelerate growth”

For most established companies, incremental revenue growth comes from adding more salespeople, more training, more technology, more advertising, more digital marketing, more measurement and more staff. Adding more tactical execution works to a point–until it doesn’t. Eventually, the returns on tactical investments fall and growth flattens.

When growth slows, what worked before just doesn’t produce the same results. More isn’t always better at these inflection points. There is always something deeper going on that your data doesn’t reveal–unless you know how to look for it.

Growth strategy advisor Greg Head will explain how the success of modern sales and marketing execution depend on foundational strategic levers that are often ignored. Greg will lead a fascinating and practical talk with simple stories and vivid examples to shed light on the counterintuitive laws of scalable growth.
