Selling the Value of GIS
You go to the conferences and do all the meetups, but still can’t seem to get those big projects rolling in your organization. Maybe it’s lack of funding, or lack of support, or just lack of time. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. This talk will walk you through the fundamentals of how to “sell” the value of your GIS and what it can do to the decision-makers in your organization. With concrete examples of projects that have worked in Johns Creek, GA, you’ll learn the way to tailor your pitch to the right people so that you can make an even bigger impact than you already do.
