If you are in sales leadership, sales operations, HR or finance, this is the event for you. Network with other leading practitioners, gain insight from our subject matter expert, David Cichelli. Learn the latest innovations in sales compensation automation solutions from our valued partners.

Your sales compensation plan needs your attention. Incentive plans for sales teams can quickly become dated, misaligned and ineffective. Delegates will gain these insights:

:: Why sales compensation works.
:: Why sales compensation must change.
:: Why you need a process to guide your sales team to the next level of effectiveness.
:: Why you must lead the process to ensure programme success.

You may already have a successful compensation programme. However, you need to keep it that way. Understand why sales compensation plans evolve. Revenue leadership must be diligent to revise pay plans to align with changing business strategies.

Bring courage to change management. Use leadership change methods to encourage sales personnel to embrace small and sometimes large changes to the pay programme. Recognise that great job design is the heart of sales effectiveness. Sales compensation supports the sales job charter. Get the job right, and the pay plan is easy to configure.

8.30: REGISTRATION & BREAKFAST

9.30: THE FIVE TRUTHS ABOUT SALES COMPENSATION

David Cichelli, Alexander Group

Every year, 90% of all companies change their sales compensation programme. Why? Sales departments use numerous programmes and sales enablement solutions to drive revenue growth. Sales compensation is one of the primary drivers of sales success. Yet, why does it change so often?

Here are the five truths about sales compensation programmes.

  • Are powerful and they work
  • Change often and should
  • Use the same principles regardless of industry
  • Need robust internal process for success
  • Provide a compelling leadership platform

10.20: HEADLINE SPONSOR

10.55: TEA, DEMOS & EXHIBITION

11.25: SALES COMPENSATION GRAVITY – HOW REVENUE GROWTH DRIVES SALES COMPENSATION

David Cichelli, Alexander Group

What's the best sales compensation programme? It depends on the revenue growth of the company. High-growth companies use one set of sales comp solutions, while slower growth companies use different pay programmes. Learn how the four phases of revenue growth – 1. Start-up, 2. Scaling, 3. Re-evaluation and 4. Optimisation – influence features of sales comp plans. Understand why special sales programmes, such as solution selling, new product focus and insight-led selling, need new sales compensation solutions.

12.15: PANEL #1

12.45: LUNCH, DEMOS & EXHIBITION

1.50: SALES COMPENSATION FORMULA MYSTERIES SOLVED

David Cichelli, Alexander Group

  • Where do sales compensation formulas come from? Sometimes, it seems like a mystery. Reading a sales compensation plan for the first time evokes questions such as:
  • How was that payout rate determined?
  • How does that extra bonus work?
  • What’s the math behind these numbers?

Attend this session to learn how to build effective sales compensation formulas, avoid unintentional payouts and assess proposed incentive formula designs.

2.40: GOLD SPONSOR

3.10: COFFEE, DEMOS & EXHIBITION

3.40: PANEL #2

4.10: EFFECTIVE SALES COMPENSATION – ADOPT BEST-PRACTICE BUILDING CODES

David Cichelli, Alexander Group

Less than effective sales compensation programmes suffer from poor design decisions. Powerful and aligned sales compensation plans subscribe to a set of company-defined building codes – that is, well-documented sales compensation design principles. Learn how HR-sponsored ‘fixed designs’ and standardised jobs can imperil a sales organisation. Use these best-of-breed principles to build effective sales compensation plans that are simple, easy to understand and reward the right results. Edit the suggested ‘Guide to Sales Compensation Design’ for application at your company!

TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR E-REWARD.CO.UK EVENTS

THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS APPLY TO THE DELIVERY OF EVENTS BY E-REWARD.CO.UK LTD (INCLUDING ANNUAL CONFERENCE; SALES COMPENSATION SYMPOSIUM). OUR PRIVACY POLICY IS ALSO OUTLINED BELOW.

Some Events – for example our Sales Compensation Symposium 2020 – are offered to attendees at no cost or at heavily discounted rates because they are sponsored by outside parties. As you can imagine, hosting a major conference in a lavish central London venue with lots of lovely food and drink and completely free attendance costs a huge amount of money. This is where our sponsors come in. They have generously funded the speaker fees and speakers travel costs, as well as the cost of the entire conference so that we can offer free places for 100+ delegates.

In these situations, the outside sponsor will receive a list of those who registered to attend the Event (name, job title, organisation, email and phone number). You may therefore receive periodic emails from these reputable companies. By submitting your registration to attend the Event you agree to be bound by these terms to the exclusion of all other terms. If you do not agree to be bound by these terms E-reward.co.uk Ltd will be unable to accept your registration.


Please read these terms and conditions carefully as they contain important information.
