Technology is changing the way we do everything, from shopping to how we consume media and the way we communicate with each other.

  • In business, how is technology going to change the way we sell?
  • Will there still be a need for face to face selling?
  • How will we pay for what we buy?
  • How will technology help us to sell or help our customers to buy?
  • What does the future look like in the arena of selling?

In a joint event between Invest South Tyneside and The Institute of Sales Management (ISM), we explore the world of selling and how technology will impact on it.

Join a panel of industry experts on sales and selling, CRM and Cryptocurrency, as we discuss where we are now and what the landscape of selling might look like in the future.

No matter what type of business you are in, selling is how we all survive as businesses. So, understanding what the future of sales might look like will be worth exploring together.

Jill's current role sees her work across the region, proactively engaging industry and education to support both parties to get what they need from each other - talk about a challenge!

With teachers being stretched to breaking point with existing curriculum demands, the need for digital skills in business in of huge importance - and not only in the tech sector.
