Upcoming AKAM Events
Our popular workshop format offers KAM topic-focused presentations by experienced practitioners and KAM experts, followed by group discussions on interesting questions and challenges. Everyone present can share their experiences and benefit from those of others.
'AKAM Technical' workshops are half-day intensive, smaller-group learning sessions at which an expert workshop leader shares specific techniques with practitioners.
Our annual conferences have a more traditional conference presentation format, and therefore more speakers.
Meetings are usually held in a different location each time, so that AKAM can reach as many people around Europe as we can. Presentations and, where possible, discussion outputs are uploaded afterwards to Member Resources.
Tuesday 3rd March 2020, Berlin @ Pfizer Head Office Germany
With Dr Olivier Rivière
This workshop will explore key technologies and practices that can help you acquire, manage and develop top/key accounts. Dr Olivier Rivière will illustrate the principles with real-life examples and offer guidelines and advice as take-aways. The workshop has benefits to offer whether you are a Key Account Director with direct influence on selecting technology for your KAM programme, or a Key Account manager who needs to know how to get the most out of what is already there, or wants to lobby for technical support that would really make a difference.
