Break the Rules and Close More Sales!

Today’s Buying and Selling environment has been termed “difficult” at best.  Buyers are educated, they often want to “self-diagnose” and they put selling professionals through complex buying processes.  All too often, sellers are left with no deal, sometimes no decision and have put in a tremendous amount of effort, with no result.  At our session, we’ll discuss what sellers are facing in the market, why it’s happening and how to professionally take control of the buyer/seller dance.

Companies may not be fully aware of the inconsistencies in their road-testing programs, or that most companies are relying on the subjective opinion of a driver evaluator to make hiring and risk decisions.

This presentation provides an overview of a new cognitive road test developed by the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) for the Ministry of Transportation in Ontario, Canada (MTO). TIRF developed and evaluated the Enhanced Road Test (ERT) in 2016 to assess a driver’s cognitive fitness to drive. It was designed to flag individuals for potential cognitive impairment and help distinguish between those drivers fit to drive and those not fit to drive. The presentation summarizes research evidence on fitness to drive and cognitive impairment, describes the different components of the ERT, discusses key findings from this study, and reviews conclusions as well as next steps for drivers, employers and owner operators.
