Details

With increased access to digital content, buyers are doing more of their buying research independent of their sellers. The pandemic accelerated that change exponentially, perhaps cramming a decade of change into 18 months. Industry research shows that sellers haven’t kept up, and buyers are switching to suppliers who “get” how they buy.
Changing sales strategies, models and processes is difficult and requires executive support. Join industry leading sales experts and practitioners as they discuss the key issues distributor sales teams face and the pathways to their success. You’ll learn how to navigate and master the forces of change and build successful initiatives to secure your revenue growth and strategic positioning.

At the NAW 2022 Executive Summit, we invite you to:
• Have cocktails next to the Declaration of Independence and network with distribution executives and industry experts at the National Archives for an exciting
kick-off reception
• Get inspired with a powerful keynote from Rob O’Neill, Former Navy SEAL, team leader, and senior chief petty officer with the Naval Special Development Group
(SEAL Team Six)
• Go deeper on issues impacting your business by listening to industry leading speakers covering workforce, supply chain, marketplaces, cyber security, sales
transformation, and more.
• Look to the future with a deep dive with peers during the roundtable sessions, and gain actionable tips and insights that will make a huge impact on your key
functional areas in 2022
• Celebrate the distribution industry’s remarkable achievements and contributions made by your company and other distributors in business and philanthropy
• Hear what’s on the horizon from NAW’s Government Relations Team, top political pundits, and an economic update from Brian Beaulieu of ITR
• Meet with industry leaders like Distribution Strategy Group, Distribution Performance Group and Award Winning Entrepreneur
And much more, including surprise content and speakers you’ll only experience if you attend the NAW 2022 Executive Summit!
