Keynote with Ramon Ray

Connect With Your Clients: Staying Human in Today's Digital World

Thursday, July 25, 2024 8:30 a.m. - 9:45 a.m.

S100 Ballroom
Free Coffee & Hot Tea

Everyone craves connections with other people – a warm smile, a firm handshake, a big hug. But in this age of technology innovation, that connection is often reduced to a smiley face in an email, an emoji in a text or a funny video on social media. The trick is for sales pros and business owners to build and maintain human-centered relationships with buyers who they may rarely meet in person.

In this high-energy keynote, entrepreneur and best-selling author Ramon Ray will show you how to expertly reach and interact with prospects and clients using LinkedIn, smartphones and DMs … without sounding like an AI-generated robot. You'll discover how to add authenticity, empathy and other human elements into your content and your transactions, and leave no doubt that your team is made up of real people offering real promo solutions.
