Published DatePLYMOUTH — The Plymouth Regional Chamber of Commerce will present its next Brown Bag Luncheon Seminar on Wednesday, July 17, from 12-1 p.m. at Pease Public Library on Russell Street in Plymouth. Professor Robert Nadeau, Director of Plymouth State University's Professional Sales Program, will offer insights and strategies to move business forward in a competitive environment.
"Think you're not in sales? Consider that on average you spend up to 41% of your time convincing or persuading someone," said Professor Nadeau. "Did you know that 75% of consumers are influenced by social media? Or that 57% have done their research and have a better idea of what they want before they even talk to you?" These are just some of the staggering statistics Professor Nadeau offered about today's savvy consumers.
Nadeau is the Director of the Professional Sales Program at Plymouth State University teaching marketing, sales, and sales management, empowering students with leadership mechanisms to select, develop, and lead organizations. His career as a Senior Manager for a Fortune 100 company earned him multiple awards, keynote speaking engagements, and a reputation as a results-driven consultant. In his spare time, Professor Nadeau teaches motorcycle safety courses for Harley-Davidson.
