• You'll laugh, you'll cry...

    Ok, that's not quite true, but I deliver 45-90 minute talks to groups of 10 up to 1000's. These talks are meant to appeal to a broader audience than just sales & sales enablement professionals, as they impact anyone who has to influence others...


    Here are some of the topics:

    • Transparency, Decision Science & the Future of Sales: Sales has historically been associated with being a swarmy profession. That's all changing. With our children growing up to be our future buyers all surrounded by reviews & transparency, coupled with advances in brain science around how people make decisions, the non-obvious evolution of sales is upon us. I'll show you how to get ready.
    • Transparent Negotiations: Negotiating a contract should be easy, and it can be through transparency. I'll teach you how to determine what your negotiation levers are, and a approach where you play your cards face-up (versus a "hide your tells" approach) early-and-often in a negotiation to get to a fantastic outcome.
    • The Presentation Choreography: The brain isn't wired to listen to you speak...it's not its priority. Most presenters take a show-up-and-throw-up approach to presenting. I'll teach you a flow that takes brain science into account, which not only tells a great story, it also compels the listener to action.
    • The Art & Science of Sales Training: The brain is an incredible organ, where learning is low on its evolutionary priority list. To make the maximum impact, the focus and approach to making sales professionals better at what they do should be optimized. I'll provide some ideas to get you rolling in the right direction.
    • The 5 F's of Building Revenue Capacity: Focused for sales leaders, or those who aspire to become a sales leader, we'll explore how to create a framework for thinking about, building and communicating your approach to leadership. This framework I've personally used successfully 4 times, and use it to communicate with my leadership team, during our board presentations, and in each of my 1-on-1's. 
    • The Fundamentals of Building a Buyer Centered Sales Cycle:  In this 30-minute talk, I take the audience through the frameworks of historical selling methodologies (I happen to be a nerd / expert on most of them), then show you the path to creating a buyer centered process for your organization, which will result in a much more accurate forecast, too!
