Let’s face it, we aren’t splitting atoms here - the concepts are simple, yet as people - change is never easy. Our irreverent and fun presentation of sales tips, tricks, and concepts makes it easier for salespeople and sales leaders to implement changes to the way they sell today.

How? Well everything ends with YOU taking ACTION in some simple way that you can try right now! If you’re here, you are probably looking for something to get you started - check out the blog for this week’s post.

Strategic Account Executive/Sales Trainer

CXtec

Privately Held; 201-500 employees; Computer Networking industry

April 2008Present (6 years 6 months)

Instead of telling you 'stuff' about CXtec here is what you'll get working with me:

* Improve planning with same day response to your request for information or quote (maybe not the final answer but you'll know we're working on it).

* Reduce the occurrence of getting it wrong by having someone willing to take the time to ask you questions to understand what you really need.

* Increase effectiveness by working with a freakishly organized person to help you manage your infrastructure requirements when you have a larger project.

* Avoid the hassle of your end result costing less BUT sacrificing quality.

* Finish on time AND on budget; with quick delivery, reduced cable installation times, and the use of secondary market (equal2new) equipment.

Founder and Principal Coach

Midcourse Coaching

September 2005September 2008 (3 years 1 month)

I work with people who are good at what they do and want to be fantastic.

Just because it's simple doesn't make it easy! ™

Most of my clients would tell you that the work we do together is not rocket science. Instead I ask questions that they haven't considered, are afraid to ask themselves, or needed someone to work through the answers with.

My coaching specialty is in sales and business building, at both the individual and leadership levels.

CXtec equips financial service companies with ways to reduce the cost of the railroad tracks that the IT train runs on - many times allowing them more money to spend on improving security and applications to make their customers lives easier.

I was responsible for growing our business with financial service customers by :

* coaching salespeople to be the best they can be
* collaborating with our Marketing Dept to increase our name recognition
* develop an expert knowledge of the industry and how CXtec can help
