Keynote Speaker

The DTE is excited to announce Stu Schlackman as our Keynote Speaker at the 2021 DTE.

About Stu Schlackman:

After more than 30 years in corporate sales, Stu Schlackman formed his sales training firm to focus on helping his clients achieve Superior Sales Results. Leveraging his competitive nature and winning results, Schlackman’s firm focuses on training and coaching sales and service teams to turn them into top performers.

Before starting his own company, Schlackman was instrumental in increasing revenue and growing the client base of large corporations such as Capgemini, EDS, and the former Digital Equipment Corporation. His sales training initiatives led his sales teams to exceed sales projections by an average of more than 30% percent annually.

Today, Schlackman uses his “Four People You Should Know” Personality Perspectives Process to help companies build high performance teams and increase sales through understanding the four different personality styles. Knowing client personalities helps sales professionals close business by understanding why they make decisions. The four keys to the process help anyone understand how others make decisions, prefer to communicate, what they value and what motivates them.

As author of Don’t Just Stand There, Sell Something and Four People You Should Know, Schlackman imparts wisdom, technique, and practical advice for corporate executives, sales professionals, corporate trainers, and others who have the desire to compete and win in business and life.

Each month, Stu writes an article covering an aspect of sales. His uncanny ability to get right to the point of what can make the difference in your sales is real and actionable based on his 33 plus years of sales experience.

TRAVEL DOCUMENTATIONA photo identification is required for all passengers for airline travel. Please carry them on you and not in your checked luggage.

All travelers: Please be advised that the name on your airline ticket must exactly be the same as the name on your photo identification. If these names do not match, you will likely be denied boarding by the airline.

LUGGAGE ALLOWANCE: Airline travel regulations vary regarding the number of pieces of luggage you may check and the cost per bag.  Should any of your bags exceed the 50 pound weight restriction imposed by the airlines, you will incur additional charges. In addition, only one carry-on bag is allowed per passenger, plus a personal item such as a purse, camera bag or laptop. Carry-on bags must fit under a seat or in an overhead compartment. Golf bags are considered one piece of checked luggage.

SECURITY AND PACKING GUIDELINES: Airport security measures differ from one airport to another around the world. However, some general guidelines should be followed. Be sure to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours prior to departure, allow ample time to clear security screening at your airport and expect to encounter more than one security checkpoint at all airports. Airlines are requiring that you present yourself at your departure gate 45 minutes prior to departure. In addition, some airlines are refusing to accept checked luggage less than one hour prior to scheduled flight time. Do NOT pack any sharp objects in your carry-on luggage or they will be confiscated by security. Items such as pocket knives, tweezers, disposable razors, metal nail files, etc. must be packed in your checked luggage.  All liquids and gels in your carry-on must be less than 3 oz. (100 ml) and fit in a one, plastic, one-quart, zip-top bag.

It is imperative that you carry these items on your person and not in your checked luggage. Regretfully, CVSN, GenNext and MTI cannot assume responsibility for these items in your luggage. Additionally, most airlines do not replace these items if lost. Simply stated, do not give these items to bellmen, skycaps or anyone else.
