If you’re looking to win more sales, enhance your business writing strategies, and get a stronger grasp on SugarCRM functionality, this year’s Chicago SugarCRM Workshop is a can’t-miss event. From October 24-25th, Technology Advisors will combine complimentary SugarCRM training with a free educational workshop on executing effective sales processes through SugarCRM. Here are some of the most exciting highlights:

1-on-1 Time With SugarCRM CMO Clint Oram

A large part of the SugarCRM Workshop experience is personalization. Attendees have the rare opportunity for one-on-one access to SugarCRM CMO and co-founder Clint Oram, in addition to our software experts. This is your chance to ask all your pressing questions, discuss strategies, and get real examples straight from CRM specialists.

It’s Cheap…Like, Crazy Cheap

If you’re eager to learn about CRM but have a tight budget, this is the free event for you. The Park Ridge Country Club is only 15 minutes from O’Hare airport and Technology Advisors offers nearby hotels at discounted rates to make your stay even easier. The entire Workshop is complimentary and includes free breakfast, lunch, cocktails, appetizers, and of course – sales and business advice. TAI is also offering free training for two of our most popular classes in Advanced Workflow and Customer Journey Mapping. You won’t find another SugarCRM event that offers this level of targeted product insight and training for free.

There’s Something for Everyone

The Chicago Sugar CRM Workshop is versatile enough for everyone in your company to benefit. While the theme focuses on a step-by-step sales process executed through SugarCRM, components involve marketing automation products like Act-On, the Gmail collaboration services of Collabspot, and the document creation of XperiDo. Act-On is a comprehensive marketing automation solution that gives your marketing team the leverage of an integrated suite tailored to your unique marketing needs. Collabspot is a Chrome extension that helps sales and service people close more deals, faster, by providing users with timely cues and easy access to customer data. XperiDo empowers your sales team by generating and delivering documents with dynamic and conditional content and formatting in just a few clicks. Plus, we’ll dive into TrustSphere relationship analytics and SugarCRM’s new Hint product to give you an inside peek at how they work.

Keynote speaker Jane Curry, a renowned business writer, will teach attendees how to write powerful and persuasive business copy for any position. As the CEO and founder of Curry Young Consultants, Jane has even helped major banks and businesses develop effective writing strategies. Imagine what attending her presentation could teach you! As a thank you, Jane is giving away a free copy of her book, Be a Brilliant Business Writer, to all Workshop attendees. This Workshop is a helpful and inexpensive way for all SugarCRM customers and prospective buyers looking for deeper insights on the product to gauge the uses of SugarCRM for their business.

Exclusive Discounts

Technology Advisors is hosting two free training seminars the day before the Workshop. These sessions are open to Workshop attendees only and will address Advanced Workflow and Customer Journey Mapping. Unlike normal training courses that can cost upwards of $1,000, this opportunity provides the same quality training, free of charge. TAI is also offering 20% off discount codes for attendees’ next training course registration with Technology Advisors, but you must attend the Chicago SugarCRM Workshop to be eligible.

It’s Fun!

Who says professional events should be boring? The Chicago SugarCRM Workshop is jam-packed with fun for everyone. Start your day with complimentary breakfast burritos and end it with snacks and cocktails at an open bar. TAI staff from all departments (sales, marketing, support, development) will be at the Workshop to chat and answer any questions you might have. Did I mention there are prizes? All Workshop attendees who attend the cocktail reception are automatically enrolled in a raffle for a free UE Boom bluetooth speaker. If you’ve ever heard the sound quality on one of those things, you’ll know why it’s such an exciting giveaway! Add a beautiful country club venue to the mix and you’ll have a day to remember.

An event as informational and exciting as this only comes around once a year, so don’t miss out! Spaces are limited. Register today for the 2017 Chicago SugarCRM Workshop by clicking here. To view last year’s SugarCRM Workshop recap video, please click this link.
