Creating A Nonstop Sales Boom: Putting An End To Boom and Bust Sales Cycles

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • How many times have you come off a great month or quarter, only to find that the pipeline is woefully empty and now everyone is struggling to keep up? Worst of all, that kind of development is considered by many to be the norm: simply accepting poor performance and the stresses of up and down results as the cost of doing business. Why does this happen? Because of complacency, inconsistency, and a far too narrow view of the role of sales. Sellers need to look at their job as more than just executing the linear process of converting opportunities to sales. To create consistent results today, you must embrace a 360-degree customer engagement model.

    In this action-packed keynote, Colleen Francis tosses out the traditional opportunity-conversion mindset and replaces it with a winning plan to develop the radar of your sales. She discusses why ubiquity is the best way to attract the best and brightest leads into your pipeline and how qualifying the opportunity is your responsibility as well as that of the buyer. She also covers how your best clients should be selling to your best leads and that not all clients deserve the right to grow equally.

Colleen’s vibrant personality lights up a room. Having done her homework on our organization prior to meeting with the group, she was able to apply her principles to relevant sales scenarios we’re facing. The entire sales group is better equipped with a handful of valuable learnings to apply to our account base. What’s more, we all still continue to find ourselves rehashing and applying her insights… six months later!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the very informative and refreshing sales strategies you presented. I gained some new knowledge and was reminded of a few things I had forgotten over time. I think virtually any business could benefit from your common-sense approach to sales.
