  • Disappointed, you knew you could help your prospect but they couldn’t “see it” and you lost a client
  • Concerned, companies and organizations are taking longer than ever to make a decision delaying new business
  • Upset, you have spent a lot of time quoting and presenting without winning your fair share of clients
  • Anxious, about the idea of “marketing yourself” to develop new clients and not sure howSound familiar?

Then you should attend this upcoming Toronto Oracle Presentation to learn how to overcome these frustrations.
