Companies leverage my international sales and leadership experience to bring a unique perspective to sales obstacles, and deliver actionable insights into complex and transactional sales methodologies. Many principles I teach are described in my book and blog, both of which discuss the mindset, strategy and processes of top sales producers.
Customers’ buying habits have changed more in the past 2 years than the previous 20 years, and companies are re-engineering their sales processes to match the changing customer journey. I discuss the global impact of this shift in my recent research paper. Sales professionals are keen to embrace these changes and grasp new technologies and social selling techniques to complement their traditional sales skills. I assist in digital transformation, share my methodology to becoming a global sales influencer, and how to leverage social networks on a company-wide, and individual, basis to drive more sales.

Breaking into new geographical locations is an expensive process. Finding offices, hiring staff, adjusting to new cultures and ongoing support are all challenging. With a career specialised in launching new technology products in the European Market, I am pleased to offer a "bridge-service" to international companies looking to expand. This consultancy service saves valuable time and money, negating my clients’ risk and accelerating sales results.
A typical path to European expansion is to generate an inbound sales pipeline before committing resources. However, this approach lacks the aforementioned expertise to support expansion, and doesn't address the cultural and practical obstacles discussed in this research paper. BB European expansion consultancy provides a comprehensive range of services to support remote efforts and lay the necessary foundation for success.
