Call Me, Maybe

FREE personal consultations with conference speakers!

Yes, Wide World of Sales presenters are saying “Call me, maybe.”

Speakers have generously donated FREE 1-hour phone consultations to take place after you return home from the conference. This is to make sure you have ample assistance once you get back into the office to fully implement the great ideas that you learn–specialized attention from experts in the field for free. Where else will you find this?!

These consultations will be raffled off to registrants at the conference in Las Vegas next month. Entry into the raffle is complimentary with a full registration. There is no extra cost involved. Currently, registrants have a 1 in 10 chance of winning.

But you must take the first step towards winning one of these one-on-one sessions: REGISTER TO ATTEND NOW!
