Battling Stagflation: Sustaining Profitability Amidst a Flat Economy
The shifting economy and its adverse effects will pose serious challenges to distributors. Continual increases in competition are creating greater price pressure for distributors that are already being squeezed by the escalating costs of doing business and purchasing from suppliers.
Join David Bauders and Doug Wyatt in this NAW webinar to learn key actions to help you combat these challenges so you can grow margins and preserve profitability even in this challenging economy.
- David BaudersCEO, SPARXiQ
David Bauders’ singular goal is to help his clients sustainably create and capture higher economic value.
After beginning his career at IBM and Booz & Company, in 1993 David launched SPA (Strategic Pricing Associates, Inc.). Since that time, SPA has generated $100+ Billion of profitable growth for over six hundred organizations, including twenty-five Fortune 500 companies, and is a leading provider of profit-maximizing analytics.
David also recognized a consistently growing skills gap in sales forces’ ability to navigate evolving buyer practices in today’s disruptive digital economy: core selling skills, negotiation skills, financial acumen, strategic client-relationship building, and emotional intelligence. In 2015, he established a second company, SPASIGMA, to fill that gap, as well as distributed sales teams’ need to access virtual sales training and sales enablement support. Uniquely, SPASIGMA produces binge-worthy content in Hollywood, transforming expert content into today’s modern media formats.
In 2019, David merged both companies to create SPARXiQ. SPARXiQ provides integrated analytics and training solutions that accelerate sales performance, profitability and long-term enterprise value.
