Since the POS training opportunities were so popular at our 2019 conference, we’ve brought them back this year in the form of a dedicated POS Lab. This is your opportunity to go through Exatouch® and some of our other solutions, ask any pressing questions you have, and gain tips on showcasing the technology to your merchant prospects. Don’t miss it!
Once again, I commend you on overcoming the unique challenges of the past year and thank you for your dedication not only to Electronic Payments, but to serving your merchants. You’re an invaluable asset to the Electronic Payments team. We hope the next few days leave you renewed and motivated to achieve new levels of success.
Electronic Payments Founder and CEO
We’re kicking off IMPACT with an inspirational address from our keynote speaker, Walter Bond. A dynamic addition to the conference, you’ll find Walter’s energy and passion to be contagious.
Walter Bond made it to the NBA, but he didn’t stop there. Where many would consider a career with the Utah Jazz, Detroit Pistons, and Dallas Mavericks one of life’s greatest achievements, Walter saw it as a jumping off point—a catalyst that launched him into what he was made to do. His experience on and off the court prepared him for a thriving career in business coaching, mentorship, and public speaking.
His journey to the NBA was not an easy one, but instead of seeing obstacles, Walter saw opportunity. While some may have complained about being on the bench as a college basketball player, Walter used it as an opportunity to focus on the fundamentals every team needs to be successful. It is this mind shift, these simple yet powerful concepts, that have allowed Walter to reach massive audiences, long after his days on the court were over.
Walter is far more than a former NBA player. He’s a renowned business coach, an author, a high-profile speaker, a business owner, a father, a husband, and a friend. He is a breath of fresh air for businesses across the country that are eager to get to the next level.
We have no doubt you’ll walk away from Walter’s address more empowered to tackle your sales goals now and in the future!
