2018 WWS Co-chairs: Jill Muenich, NGL and Lori Salberg, PlotBox
Call for Presentations
ICCFA Wide World of Sales 2018
January 10-12, New Orleans Marriott
We are seeking presentations on the most relevant and thought-provoking sales & marketing insights, tools and techniques for the 2018 Wide World of Sales to be held in New Orleans on January 10-12. We are looking for presentations that offer concrete, how‐to information, with an emphasis on the “how” rather than the “why” and addressing the hot topics of cremation sales, recruitment & development of your sales team, team building, the sales process, and what’s on the horizon.
This is your opportunity to give back to the profession by sharing your knowledge and expertise. Proposals are due to the ICCFA by Friday, July 14. 2017. When submitting a session proposal, the ICCFA Sales & Marketing Committee requests that you include:
- Your contact information, a brief bio regarding your background and qualifications and a head & shoulders picture of yourself.
- A detailed description of your “how‐to” topic, including the specific tools, techniques and/or initiatives the attendee will be able to use immediately.
- The primary target for your presentation (managers, counselors or both.)
- Any request for compensation must be included in your proposal or it will not be granted.
WWS breakout sessions are typically 50 minutes in length, so please narrow your topic to one or two key points that you can fully develop and communicate within that time frame. All speakers are required to provide a 1-2 page supplemental handout which will be printed in the onsite program.
Speakers will receive a complimentary registration. Panelists or speakers sharing the stage with three or more people will be offered a discounted registration.
Please send proposals to Kirsten Kase at email@example.com. Questions, call Kirsten at 703.391.8402.
