    "Selling" Your Ideas

    Presented by David Phillips & Dan Black, Faster Glass

    Whether we want to admit it or not, we all engage in some for of sales, especially in business. We've all also experienced both great and terrible sales. The process of "great" sales is essentially about communicating relevant value. All too often, ideas are discarded not because they are inherently worthless but rather because their value wasn't properly communicated.

    5:00 PM - Networking

    5:45 PM - Dinner

    6:45 PM - "Selling" Your Ideas
