  • Hi Una, Looks like a super line-up of speakers, I think Ill make some room in the diary 🙂

  • Hi Neil, this is a post that is close to my heart. The profession of selling is often misunderstood, sometimes maligned and continues to see massive change in recent years to the point that many now believe that selling as we know it will cease to exist very soon. For me, the traits that that define a professional salesperson are an ability to ask great questions and the ability to truly and actively listen to the answers. It will be interesting to see what others think?

  • Hi Neil, nnA friend told me he tries to be there ‘before the fire starts’. In other words, he spends as much time with prospects before they are ready to buy and then, when things happen, he’s the one they usually turn to. nnRegards,nnIvannnn

  • Hi Tori,nnI agree with you and i do like the way you said that they are the ones with the money. Even if they are wrong in their mind they will always perceive they are right especially when businesses try and convince them otherwise.

  • Hi Tori. For me the only way to develop a truly focused and relevant sale for the customer is to understand how your product or service will help them overcome their problem or make their lives easier. Without a solid understanding of the customers business or need, it is almost impossible to make your offering relevant to them and the sale won’t happen.nThanks for sharing

  • karena

    none of the above… sorry you must be former sales person… now go be the buyernn

  • Thank you for those timely reminders. I especially like the points on ‘being alert’ and ‘every little thing counts’. I find that when you are in the zone everything you hear and observe gets channelled into your task at hand if you are that type of person. It would also be handy to see the other side of the coin one day – what traits make for a not so good sales approach? What do you think?
