Posted on: Thursday 01 July 2010 5:57am

The opening day of this year’s CMC ended in the traditional way with an evening of food and wine at Pizza Express on Devonshire Street, the very place where the conference was first hatched some 7 years ago.

It explained how to manage your financier through the project and even increase your chances of repeat business. Host: Melissa Norman, Director, Media Sauce Alright, so your first thought when going to a workshop about pitching and the sales process might be about the sleazy, insincere salesman or saleswoman with the never-ending handshake that you’re bound to become if you start taking any of the forthcoming advice seriously.
