How do you build stronger relationships with buyers using next-gen digital communications?

In today's fast-paced and highly competitive business landscape, organizations recognize the crucial role of empowering sales teams to achieve their targets and drive revenue growth. Numerous frameworks exist for sales success, but they all converge on one core principle: build and maintain a strong connection with prospects and customers.

Yet, the way we conduct business has transformed. Our post-pandemic reality has solidified hybrid working as the new norm. Organizations now operate with a diverse workforce, comprising office, remote, and hybrid employees. Consequently, the sales game has become more challenging than ever before. The initial task of forging connections without face-to-face meetings has grown more daunting.

Deepening relationships, understanding customer needs, and fostering authenticity are all made more difficult in a predominantly virtual context. So, how can we tackle these challenges and leave a lasting impression on our customers? Join Jugo and your industry peers as we find out. Share your own experiences and discuss best practices for a new virtual world in this Meet the Boss roundtable.

About Jugo

Jugo has reimagined the way that we interact. It is your virtual superpower. Whether you are inspiring and coaching in a one-to-one, leading a thought leadership workshop, or engaging an audience of thousands, Jugo puts human connection at the heart of every interaction. We do this to connect people. We do it to inspire. Jugo leverages state-of-the-art technologies to provide a complete internal and external meetings and events platform. We scale from a handful of participants to many hundreds or thousands.

We can do this because we are built into the cloud, leveraging the AWS (Amazon Web Services) platform to scale, while retaining security and stability at all audience numbers. We engage audiences, from the minute they join an event to the minute they leave. We capture their hearts and minds. We inspire them to participate and act. We do this with stunning 3D virtual environments created using the latest version of Unreal Engine. The possibilities here are endless and only constrained by our imagination. We create customised, beautiful spaces for you to host and impress your guests.

We take anybody, anywhere, and immerse them into these incredible 3-dimensional environments. We do this without the need for VR (Virtual Reality) headsets or cartoon avatars. With just a webcam and an Internet connection, attendees are no longer distant tiles. They are active participants. We take anybody, irrespective of where they are in the world, and place them into a virtual environment. With Jugo, we have rewritten the rules of virtual communication. With Jugo, virtual just got real.
