Summary

This report summarizes outcomes of collaboration between ADB and implementing agencies of Bhutan, Lao People's Democratic Republic, the Philippines, and Viet Nam to address gaps in the production of agricultural and rural statistics. This compendium of six research papers is a component of the Asian Development Bank's Regional Policy and Advisory Technical Assistance 8029 that was implemented as a contribution to the Global Strategy to Improve Agricultural and Rural Statistics for enhanced food security in Asia and the Pacific. It is hoped that this will assist governments of countries participating in this project in addressing existing gaps in the production of agricultural and rural statistics. The report is also important in setting future directions for the improvement of agricultural and rural statistics, not only for the countries represented in the publication but also for others in the region.

    The marketing revolution is here, so get on the right side of the barricade and become a part of it! Let's thank Mr. and Mrs. Consumer and their little Consumerlings who have seized power from the corporations and are now firmly in control.  
    In Punk Marketing, Laermer and Simmons take an irreverent, penetrating look at the seismic change in the relationship between the people who sell stuff—products, services, entertainment—and those who purchase it. They demonstrate that to survive in business, a revolutionary approach is needed—one they have branded "Punk Marketing"—and it's one we all need to understand, for the traditional divisions among commerce, content, and consumers are continuing to blur ever more rapidly. 
    Never dull, sometimes controversial, but always a helluva lot of fun, Punk Marketing presents a manifesto for any businessperson needing to engage consumers—or any consumer seeking to understand and employ their newfound power. And here's the good news: It's based on principles that have existed forever. In an age of digital video recorders, "branded" entertainment, cell-phone TV, multiplayer online games, and never-ending social networking, a coherent approach to marketing has never been more vital. With Punk Marketing, there's a built-in plan to equip you with tools to make all this change work out just fine, thanks. 
    Punk Marketing is the first shot—soon to be heard 'round the world—of a long-awaited and breathless uprising that businesses want, deserve, and desperately need.

    Even skilled salespeople buckle in tough selling situations-getting defensive with prospects who challenge them on price or too quickly caving to discount pressure. Those are examples of the fight-or-flight response-something salespeople learn to avoid when they build their emotional intelligence. Studies have shown that emotional intelligence (EI) is a strong indicator of success. In Emotional Intelligence for Sales Success, sales trainer and expert Colleen Stanley shows how closely EI is tied to sales performance and how salespeople can sharpen their skills to maximize results. Readers will discover: * How to increase impulse control for better questioning and listening * The EI skills related to likability and trust * How empathy leads to bigger sales conversations and more effective solutions * How emotional intelligence can improve prospecting efforts * The EI skills shared by top sales producers * And much more Emotional intelligence plays a vital role at every stage of the sales process, from business development to closing the deal. When customers can get product information and price comparisons online, the true differentiator is the ability to deftly solve problems and build relationships-EI territory!
