HALL of Famer to Headline
Heartland Fall Sales Seminar
Heartland salespeople will learn by the lake this year as they meet at the beautiful Waters of Minocqua Resort/Hotel for the 2017 Fall Sales Seminar on Oct. 11. This year’s featured presenter is Wisconsin Broadcaster’s Association Hall of Famer Perry Kidder.
Kidder’s presentation at the Heartland Fall Sales Seminar will focus on the “controllable” that we all have. Perry says, “We have the ability to ‘control’ that first impression. We can ‘control’ how many calls we make, how well prepared we are, how good of a daily/weekly plan we have, our networking including social media, we can ‘control’ our community spirit, our personal accountability, our commitment to personal excellence and our commitment to our client’s success.” Perry’s presentation will be more informal than previous Heartland Fall Sales Seminars and will feature much “give and take” roundtable discussion and conversation with the Heartland salespeople.
Perry is a broadcaster who came up through the ranks, beginning as a radio guy, even though he has had some experience in newspapers and extensive experience in television.
