The report is based on the response of 183 leaders from 162 companies from different industry segments across 6 continents. Research participants’ roles ranged from Chief Executive Officers to managers across various departments and industry segments.

Key topics include:

  • Identify the preferred and effective channels for external communications

  • The Impact of Face-to-Face Communication: 9 in 10 of those surveyed stated that meeting someone in person has an impact on their B-2-B purchasing decisions. Conversely, telemarketing and mobile marketing have the least impact on purchasing decisions.
