Guest Speaker for our next meeting on 5th April 2019
Introducing Sheree Owen, Founder of The Sales Leader Academy and The Entrepreneur Sales Club
Fear of Selling?
How do you feel at the thought of the S word? Yes, I mean Sales or Selling
Did you know that there are powerful words related to selling your services and products and disempowering thoughts and feelings?
As a business owner who needs sales to grow and stay alive making friends with Selling is crucial.
How to flip your mindset from selling to service
– Why your motivation is key
– Believing in the opportunities you offer as an expert
– Consultative selling styles, being influential
– Finding your natural selling style as an entrepreneur with Clarity 4D
– Naturally closing a sales opportunity
‘’It’s my passion to help transform how you think and feel about Sales, selling and teach you the how to that makes you feel conversational, natural and confident.‘’
I am the Founder of The Sales Leader Academy and The Entrepreneur Sales Club with Sheree. Having worked in the sales and customer service professions for over 20 years interspersed with starting and running my own businesses, I decided after leaving my last senior corporate role to set up a new venture. The Sales Leader Academy was born as an affordable boutique resource for sales professionals and for entrepreneurs to grow their business, I quickly identified that many entrepreneurs needed help to become friends with sales, as no sales means no business, so many seemed stuck. I wanted to help so devised the following based on all my years of selling and training others to sell naturally.
Signature programmes include Overcome your Fear of Selling, The Ultimate Selling Series Psychology of Sales, and Your Business Sales Success programme.
Sheree is a Fellow of the Institute of Sales Management, a Clarity 4D Business Partner, and Master Practitioner of NLP completing her training with John Seymour, Sue Knight and Ian McDermott all leaders in the field.
