Business Track

The business track provides three days of valuable information delivered by industry leaders such as Steve Duplessie, Founder and Senior Analyst of the Enterprise Strategy Group and Stu Price, principal of Stu Price Consulting along with strategic LSI partners, key customers and LSI senior management.

LSI will provide you with the ultimate SVM sales toolkit including the latest selling strategies to become even more successful.
