relationships with their clients, and anyone who wants to know how to sell more
comprehensive services to clients.

consultants and solution sales teams at all types of companies, ranging from
entrepreneurial, pre-IPO, hyper-growth players to some of the largest legacy
organizations like Accenture, Cisco, and HP. The one constant that we've found is that strong client partnerships are the key to their growth and success.
