September’s Speaker

We look forward to hearing from Liz Wendling on: How To Generate High-Value Sales Conversations, Update Your Outdated Selling Strategies.

Many professionals think they’re using a modern selling approach, fit for today’s fast-paced, information-saturated marketplace. In reality, many are using sales methods that are outdated, old-school and salesy and it costs them clients, income and opportunities.

Come learn how to sell in a way that fits you, your personality and style. Get some practical and tactical guidance about what it takes to attract more clients and close more business—the modern way.

You will:

  • Understand how to sell to today’s new consumer and sync up with the way they buy. (it’s radically different than five short years ago)
  • Learn the old-school words and phrases that turn people off and make you sound like you got stuck in the 1980s.
  • Find out what you are doing that is causing people to avoid your calls and why they delete your emails.
