I’ve been in sales forever and have worked with 1000’s of sales professionals and 100’s of managers
I have lived and breathed sales from a very young age, mainly from a need to earn money! My sales career began when I was 11 years old bulk buying fizzy drinks to sell on school trips and car washing door to door. By 14 I was selling high-end tennis racquets and at 17 I was a qualified tennis coach running my own business. During my University summers in America, I sold educational books door-to-door.
Professionally I spent many years as a Recruiter and manager of recruitment teams of up to 40 people, with a turnover of £10m. I then moved into a training and internal consulting role where my true passion for helping individuals and teams to improve their performance and reach their goals, really developed.
Today I am still involved in sales by selling both SaaS and Consulting services. I spend much of my time in Business Development or Sales related activities, this means that the approaches I use are tried and tested by myself and well as the companies I consult for.
