Welcome to the SBI Sales and Marketing podcast. We're joined by Jim Wetekamp, the CEO of BravoSolution, to discuss how he developed a corporate strategy that made strategic alignment a breeze and revenue growth the norm.
In our first segment, we discuss how Jim was able to steer his company through 14 straight years of revenue growth, despite market obstacles such as the dot.com crash and the one of the most severe recessions in the history of the U.S., by staying adaptive to market needs with a creative product strategy. Jim also talks about how his background in product strategy and development helps inform his decisions as a CEO, which leads to a look at the DNA makeup of the average Fortune 100 CEO.
Next, we delve into how to get CEOs and sales leaders on the same page so your company can enjoy the benefits of strategic alignment by involving them in 3-year-long range planning and product strategy, so that all eyes see where the annual sales strategy and numbers fit in.
In our last segment, we look at the importance of having an adaptable marketing strategy when facing market changes and conclude by outlining the first three steps a CEO can take today to get started on making a new annual plan.
