Buyer's habits have changed, shouldn't sellers change too? Stand Apart Sales introduces new strategies, tactics and apps to help reach more decision makers and expand a seller's influence. Often 80% of the decision-making process is complete before a prospect engages a seller - learn how to reach them earlier and make yourself a valuable resource. In this session, Holly will focus on how to be most impactful in one of the first touchpoints - how to use some new apps to present your property/business better and learn some business writing techniques to make your message clear and compelling.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Write clear and compelling emails and proposals
  2. Learn how technology can make you stand apart from your competitors
  3. Make yourself a more valuable resource to your prospects so they turn to you first

Scottsdale Plaza Resort

The values of Scottsdale Plaza are personified by our corporate team and operations staff, many of whom have been with us for over 25 years. We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of a unique hotel that employs special people. Whenever possible, we promote from within, contributing to our rich tradition of service and a deeply felt connection with the guests who return year after year. We treat each other as family and take pride in the care we provide — not just for our guests, but for the grounds of a resort that feels more like home than a place to work.

While we are located on bustling Scottsdale Road, moments from the restaurants, shops and art galleries of Old Town Scottsdale, our neighbors become a memory once you step into the elegant Spanish Mediterranean lobby. The resort's meticulously landscaped grounds — filled with desert flowers and shrubs, 50-foot palms and eucalyptuses and fragrant seasonal plantings — are encircled by views of Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain.

Among the garden pathways and courtyards, The Scottsdale Plaza's six distinctive room, suite and lodge options are arranged in intimate clusters that allow for quiet and privacy. With options ranging from larger-than-standard deluxe guest rooms to beautifully appointed, residence-style suites and lodges and an extraordinary Presidential Suite, we have the perfect room for family vacations, romantic getaways and meeting groups.

Our mission is to orchestrate a superlative "Guest Experience," one that exceeds our customers' expectations. Whether it be from a flawlessly executed corporate event, an elaborate catered affair, or simply a relaxing getaway, the sincerest compliment we receive is when our guests return again and again.
