“White Glove, High Touch” – A Stunning Reunion for Sales Ops Executives at the St. Regis Aspen
By Jennifer Holmes | November 23, 2022
Last month, not only did IPMI reunite sales ops leaders in-person after two-and-a-half-years of pandemic-related virtual meetings, they transported them into an immersive Winter Wonderland with the arrival of Aspen, Colorado’s first snowfall. It was a bumpy journey into Aspen for many guests – some of whom saw mountain lions and moose along their winding shuttle ride from Denver airport, yet immediately upon arrival the event unfolded in a smooth and seamless fashion, echoed through the feedback of one attendee: “a 5-Star experience from top to bottom. Event organizing, venue, networking – had it all.’
Within the complex and integrated function that is Sales Operations, the program sought to address one big question: after years of sales disruption, how can we take what we now know and leverage key learnings to create better futures that prioritize innovation, efficiency and digital customer connection? The event brought-in Chief Sales Officers and VPs of Sales Operations from across North America to size upon this question, engaging in critical dialogues around how to continue to navigate changes pervasive in the sales environment brought on by the pandemic and exacerbated by evolving consumer sentiment. Panel discussions tackled big-picture trends emerging within sales and sales operations as we head into 2023 (oh how time flies!) while Think Tank and Roundtable sessions created the perfect environment for brainstorming how leaders can reassess their roles and expand capabilities to support growth objectives through a data-driven lens.
Creating opportunities for our attendees to form meaningful connections with their peers is the ultimate goal of the Sales Operations Institute – and whether it was through a shuttle journey of a lifetime, a deep-dive exploration of the key program themes, or a round of Black Jack during the networking Casino Night, the sense of comradery at the 2022 Sales Operations Institute was unmatched. Attendees left feeling rejuvenated, ready to tackle the year ahead, and already looking forward to the 2023 program, set to take place at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida from October 22nd – 24th, 2023.
We would like to thank the 2022 Advisory Committee for their hand in shaping a relevant, timely program, our esteemed Speaker Faculty onsite and of course our valued Partners.
