Book a Speaking Engagement.
Are you looking for a keynote sales speaker for your next event for a professional services or B2B audience? A speaker who will not only provide inspiration and motivation, but practical tips and tools on sales and client relationships that attendees can put into action straight away?
The Business of Trust team are passionate about helping people build trust in business, and learning better and easier ways to ‘sell’. Where once you could get away with preparing your sales pitch and doing a hard sell, these days those tactics don’t differentiate you, position your services as a commodity, and make it harder and harder to get in the door. Now you must focus on building trust, and building it quickly.
By the end of a presentation with Keith, Julien or Kathryn, audiences leave with a greater understanding of how sales has changed, what it takes to build trust quickly, and new ideas and skills that they can immediately implement on how to win work, without price being the most important deciding factor.
By focusing on trust and not selling, we can help your audience understand how to:
- raise the profitability of their work. Partly by focusing on having the relationship with the economic buyer, and partly through removing proposal processes out of the sales cycle as much as possible.
- shorten the sales cycle by getting to the stage very quickly where clients want to buy a service because they want to work with the provider.
- increase the confidence of people to have broad and deep conversations, build relationships and ultimately win work.
- Raise their profiles and become a visible expert in the market through both online and offline tactics.
