'Strategic Communication' Online Sales Training Workshop @ Online

In today’s environment of constant media, marketing, and sales pitches it is increasingly difficult to separate you, your products, and your company from the competition.  Traditional sales methodologies are seeing diminishing returns.  In an effort to stand out and cut through the noise we’ve created ‘Strategic Communication’. A sales approach designed to build credibility, value, and differentiate you from the other guys. What’s so different?  Join us to find out.

This event highlights five sessions of online sales training and development. Available for MBE certified firms.

2020 Leadership & Advocacy Awards Luncheon *POSTPONED* @ DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are aware of the global, national, and local health risks posed by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Washington State. Our responsibility is, first and foremost, to support our Council Members, MBEs, and Community Partners. We have spent a significant amount of time thoughtfully assessing the current situation and have decided to postpone the 2020 Awards Luncheon currently scheduled for March 25th.
Living up to our Council purpose—helping our Members and MBEs grow, while not placing them at risk—necessitates we postpone the Awards Luncheon. The new date is October 1, 2020.
Sincerely,
Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council
