    How do you attract, convert and close more leads in today’s noisy business landscape?

    Become a buyer-focused organization!

    The inbound marketing approach is a highly-scalable, measurable, easy-to-follow formula that will help you create brand awareness, sort good leads from bad, prep better for those RFPs, and position yourselves as a market leader. Learn how to shift your organizational thinking from “all about us” to “all about them” and align your marketing and sales teams to grow your business.

    Attendees will gain:
      -- An understanding of how buyers have changed and what to do about it
      -- Clarity on inbound marketing and how it works for AEC firms
      -- Actionable tips you can leverage immediately
      -- Resources to build your own buyer personas
