Social media has certainly changed marketing, but few people are addressing just how dramatically it’s changed sales. In this interview we hit that subject pretty head on.

He’s the author of Winning the Professional Services Sale, which offers professional service providers, business development managers, and firm leaders new strategies to identify, qualify, and close any services sale.

  • Changes in the Sales Market
  • Success in Sales
  • Defining the Shared Answer
  • The Process of Closing a Sale
  • The Perfect Sales Proposal
  • Getting the Next Sale and Referrals
