One thing that is certain about the current business environment, it is that absolutely nothing is certain at all. The world has experienced life-changing disruptions as result of COVID-19 in everything from technology to mobility, to the recent changes in political and economic climates, which have created an air of instability and uncertainty that is felt by consumers and business alike, leading to a number of strategic and operation changes, such as remote working, new procedures, internal reorganization, cost cutting and portfolio adjustments. Volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity are the new status quo. In order to forge ahead, businesses need their people on board, engaged, and confident in the future of their companies.
The European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is pleased to invite you to the 2020 edition of the HR Excellence Conference, which will take place on Thursday 3rd September at 9:00am, in Shanghai.

Times are tough. Companies are cutting back, people are tightening their belts, and many decision-makers are holding off on major purchases. However, your sales targets have NOT been reduced. Selling in a difficult economy requires different approaches than during a robust one. In addition, after the COVID-19 outbreak, some customers have even refused to see salespeople, and salespeople will have to sell without seeing the customers. This makes selling in this tough economy even more challenging! This workshop shall take the salesperson through a step-by-step way on how to navigate through these challenges, and still hit targets.
经济低迷的时期,很多公司正在削减开支,许多决策者也在推迟大规模购买。然而,销售人员的销售目标并没有减少,因此,在严酷的经济形势下需要有不同的销售方法。此外,新冠肺炎爆发后,一些客户甚至拒绝与销售人员见面,迫使销售人员在不见客户的情况下进行销售。这使得在艰难的经济环境中进行销售更具挑战性!此工作坊将一步一步地引导销售人员应对这些挑战,解决工作中遇到的问题,在经济低迷下实现销售目标。
