Date: Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Time: 1:00-4:30 pm 

Level of Complexity:

Course Description: Few companies can articulate a competitive advantage or a differentiating value proposition for their company. This course is based on 15 years of research showing attendees what is and what is not a competitive advantage. Participants will learn a new definition for differentiation statements after they are shown that most messages touted today are vague and clichéd. In this interactive workshop, attendees will leave with new advantages they didn’t know they had, or at a minimum, with a process to uncover even more in their companies.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discover new company advantages that can minimize price as an issue
  • Understand how to use the goldmine of data that will help you market and sell your products
  • Learn new ways of communicating your competitive advantages
  • Find the advantages you didn’t know you had
