This Webinar

Gartner says that talent shortage is the top emerging risk organisations face globally. Less well known is that there is a global shortage of sales talent in particular and this costs employers billions of dollars every year. In this webinar, Alan Maguire from the Entrepreneurial Sales Institute [ESI] explores the impact of a skills shortage on business performance, how this impact has been accelerated after a pandemic and how solutions can be found in Boardrooms that might be struggling with the future of work.

He is Co-Founder & CEO of ESI which was established to address the global shortage of sales skills today.
