Business Executives Exchange: Getting to Yes

March 24, 2021
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Zoom (Virtual Meeting)

Whether you are a seller-doer or 100% seller, the never-ending process of asking for a “Yes” from a prospect better be on your plate.

A “Yes” should represent a myriad of topics – including but not limited to a meeting request, an actual response to a voice mail, or being added to a list of pre-qualified service providers.

The day you stop asking – it’s safe to assume a competitor is securing the “Yes” you desired. How you get a “Yes” sometimes comes down to the perfect mix of art and science that comes with business development.

Join former SMPS Chicago President, Matt Rebro, CPSM, as he takes an interactive, deep dive into specific tools and techniques he has used during his 20+ years of seeking the next “Yes”.



Senior marketing and business development professionals with 10 years or more experience in the A/E/C industry and currently holding a Business Development or Marketing Director/Manager position within their firm are welcome to join the series. These sessions are geared towards those with experience managing business development, marketing budgets, firm procedures and operations with a direct staff and internal resources.
