Be The Envy Of Your Competitors
You followed all the rules. You’ve read all the books. You’ve implemented the strategies. And still you’re struggling to hit the goals. Face it – the rules have changed and selling today is different. Customers demand more. Sales cycles are longer. Competition is stronger. And getting above the white noise is damn near impossible. Sales success today means attracting, investing and powerfully adding value.

So – you hate to network? That’s probably because you use at least one of the three traditional networking strategies that just don’t work:
1 – You repeat someone’s name three times like a hyperactive parrot
2 – You pass out business cards out like a Harrah’s blackjack dealer
3 – Worst of all, you’re that guy who rides the elevator for hours ready to spew his 30-second pitch – That guy is the reason people stare forward in elevators
In a world of cold calls and hard sales, building solid relationships through good networking techniques is more important than ever. People who know how to network close more deals. It’s time to take the edge of off the networking process and step out of the elevator. When Meridith leaves the stage, you will have the next generation sales skills that trump cold-calls and deliver a real return on relationship investment.
“My “word” for the year is “energy” and you made that happen today. I appreciate what it takes to keep a bunch of sales people fully engaged. You knocked it out of the park!”
– Gary Shorman, CEO Eagle Communications
Employee engagement trumps customer engagement … every single time! The relationship you build with your employees is more important than the relationship you build with your customers. Yeah you heard me. Think about it! In today’s world it is not your product or service that is growing your bottom line it’s the experience your customers tweet about. The path to profitability and business growth is through employee engagement.
In this program your leaders will discover why engaging today’s employees is different, how to build a culture that makes the best and the brightest want to beat a path to your door. How to use employee engagement as the ultimate competitive advantage. Happy employees deliver great customers service & happy customers come back time after time!
“Meridith is the most dynamic, authentic speaker I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in action. Her subject matters are on point and her audience involvement is a breath of fresh air”
– Rhonda Stokes, WCU Family Business Forum
