** 1:15** - Keynote Speaker Jon Miller, CEO of Engagio
Account-Based Marketing and Account-Based Sales Development = Account-Based everything
Jon’s topic: If your job is to prospect for new contacts, not just follow-up on leads from marketing, then you know you can’t just wait around for the right people from the right accounts to swim into that net. You need to reach out to those “big fish” directly. So when you need more than inbound, learn the new “secret sauce” for combining account-based marketing and sales development to build pipelines to target accounts, expand existing relationships and connect with more decision makers.

** 3:00** - Keynote Speaker Eileen Gibson, VP Market Management, Avnet
_ No Shortcuts to Growth: Plan Your Work and Work Your Plan_
Eileen’s Topic - Growth is the lifeblood of every company, and you have choices to make when you plan for it. Your current customer base can provide great opportunities - sell them more of what you have, or expand your offerings for them. Or, you can target a new customer segment for growth - position your current offerings for a different customer type or make a completely new market move with new offerings in a new segment. Each of these options comes with dynamics, risks and potential rewards. Whichever option you choose, the discipline of thorough and deliberate go-to-market planning can mean the difference between success and failure. Hear about the Top 5 tips that will ensure that you cover every base and increase your chances for success as you embark on your journey to growth.

_ Inside Out: A Story About Refreshing a Brand _
Breakout Topic - Your organization is growing and changing in response to a variety of forces: a changing market place, an evolution in technology, mergers and acquisitions. Those forces may be causing your product and value proposition to evolve. This session will help you understand not only the power of refreshing your brand, but also the importance of doing so from the inside, out. Insight refreshed its brand a little more than a year ago for the first time in its 27-year history. During that time, it had evolved and grown from a business plan created during an ASU course by brothers Tim and Eric Crown, to a 5,500 employee, global, Fortune 500 company. Learn how Insight stayed true to its DNA, but found a way to simplify its purpose and values to create tremendous internal alignment and begin to fuel its digital transformation in the marketplace.
