Program Summary:   

Autonomous features, smart dashboards, self-driving cars, connectivity and electrification - the convergence of traditional automotive with advanced technology is redefining an entire industry.  Combined with shifting consumer demographics and needs, revitalized urbanization trends, demand for ever changing vehicle types, variety of mobility access models  and an influx of new power player technology companies, the traditional automotive industry is moving into undefined and unexplored territory.

For senior sales executives, the challenges have never been greater.  The need for flexibility and nimbleness is paramount as new markets quickly emerge and traditional ways of doing business disappear.  Cultural challenges, generational pressures and novel ways of bringing together strategic allies become the new “operating normal.”

Join our distinguished panel of senior sales leaders.  They face these issues daily as they balance customer demands, financial constraints and new players in the market. Hear their views and predictions for future disruptions and learn their insight for maintaining relevancy in the face of revolutionary change.
