Topics included:


Sales = Storytelling:

From civilization’s earliest days, human beings have been captivated by stories. That’s why high-producing sales pros effectively use stories to educate, persuade and reassure prospects.


When you become a master storyteller, it becomes much easier to capture greater market share and improve sales per client!


Sales Prospecting Master Class:

This in-depth, full-day master class will give sales professionals a step-by-step guide to prospecting as well as actual language you can use to engage prospective clients as soon as you return to your office. You will learn how to define and find your ideal prospects, develop sales language that allows you to confidently engage cold prospects, and leverage email/voicemail to your advantage.


Sales Management Session:

In this 90 minute session Jeff will share with sales managers how to hold their teams accountable, and how to coach and mentor sales people.
