Matchmaking Mistakes

September 6, 2017 – 12 (PST)/ 1 (MST) 


Did you know that 86% of buyers can’t see a difference between suppliers while 70% of suppliers think they’re are unique? Have you been meeting with diversity buyers for years and still haven’t gotten any traction at conferences? For 20 years I was a marketing manager for companies like PepsiCola, Pizza Hut and Frito-Lay where I bought services. It always frustrated me that suppliers weren’t getting it right and wasting tons of resources in pitches that went nowhere. Now, I teach companies how to market and sell to the big corporations. For the past 2 years, I’ve been a certified WBE and I’ve sat through countless roundtables and matchmaking meetings while asking diversity officers what they thought were the biggest mistakes WBEs are making. This is a presentation of what they said.


Join us for this story-packed presentation and learn:

  • The 3 big mistakes that keep WBEs from getting business at Matchmaking meetings
  • Why having a certification alone isn’t enough to get hired
  • How to pick a differentiator that will have the buyers at ‘hello’
