After we had our annual sales meeting as a virtual meeting due to the Covid-19 pandemic in March, we were all very pleased to welcome our sales team back in Heidenheim on the 8th of July for our second international sales meeting this year.
The opening was marked by a joint dinner the evening before, which offered the opportunity to exchange experiences in a relaxed atmosphere. This also gave our newest employees the chance to get to know the sales team.
The following day we started early in the morning with the first part of our sales meeting. In addition to recapitulating the business development in 2020, we also discussed the consequences, opportunities and risks arising from the Covid-19 pandemic.
During the second part of the meeting, an outlook was given on the next steps planned for the rest of 2020. Special attention was paid to the newly established central marketing department, which will enable us to place customers even more strongly at the centre of our business activities.
The afternoon offered the opportunity to clarify specific questions and discuss new ideas in individual workshops and personal exchanges. In particular, we discussed the new online Mayer machine configurator and our digital solutions for cooperation within our team.
