Lifelong Lerner Webinar: The Future of Sales

Lifelong Lerner webinar series with a laptop

Sales has been the bridge between organizations and consumers, but the dynamics of this relationship changed, leaning heavily on digital solutions due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Will this change be permanent?

Join us for the next Lifelong Lerner Webinar Series: The Future of Sales on Thursday, March. 18 from noon to 1 p.m. (EST), when faculty and alumni from the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics will discuss how selling has changed in the last few years, including the role of new technologies such as social media and AI. Panelists will also discuss the role of sales people and what skill sets the next generation of sales professionals will need. The webinar series is free and open to the public.
