Rapport Building it’s about being totally present

Today’s sales podcast is about being totally present, aware and sincerly engaged.  Too many people feign rapport or interest and then whey wonder why they don’t land the deal or are unable to fortify client relationships.  Successful sales people are remembered because of the way they make people feel when they’re in their presence.  Your feedback and thoughts on this podcast would be greatly appreciated.

Vinetta Peek’s review of the event:

On behalf of the Certified Management Accountants of British Columbia – I wanted to let you know how pleased we were to participate and sponsor your event yesterday with the Vancouver Board of Trade.

Selling and Succeeding in Turbulent Economic Times is definitely something any company who wants to survive the upcoming Economic Storm, needs to focus on – and your presentation went into great depth as to how to focus on those positive opportunities – which will ultimately result in growth vs. decline.

In talking to some of your guests after the event, the comments were extremely positive: in the information you provided, your great sense of humour – which makes learning enjoyable, and the overall positive benefit to them attending the event.

I look forward to attending more of your seminars in the future – as I find them refreshing and relevant to the challenges businesses face each day.

Last night I attended the Vancouver Blogger’s Meetup (great recap on Jan Karlsbjerg’s Blog)  and had a great conversation with Raul the organizer.  We talked about about connecting and networking outside of our silo or comfort zone.  Today’s podcast is about my reflections on this great concept:

Shane Gibson, President (North America), Knowledge Brokers International Systems Ltd.

Using Social Media and Social Networking to Succeed in Tough Times

I have had several requests to expand on how social networking tools like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, and social media tools like Youtube and Viddler can help sales people and entreprepreneurs in turbulent and tough economic times.  This is a follow up podcast to the one I did a couple of weeks ago on “Selling and Succeeding in Turbulent Economic Times.”  I intend on updating with a written blog entry and would appreciate if you could share any of your personal success stories about how these tools are working for you. (back links and attribution of course!)

Here’s today’s podcast on “Using Social Networking and Social Media to Succeed in Tough Times.”
