Speaker: Danny Gosling

Selling without the hard-sell: the art and science of Pre-suasion.

Are you a business introvert?

Getting clients is easy, if you enjoy selling. But it can be a nightmare if you hate the thought of coming across like a slick salesman. Yet without clients, you don’t have a business.

So, how can you find a steady stream of new clients who are ready and willing to do business with you, if you don’t like to be the pushy, aggressive sales type?

In this talk I’ll show you how to bring new clients to your door who are eager and ready to buy.

They come to you pre-sold, or ‘pre-suaded’ as we like to say at Thinkography.

Forget rejection, forget being salesy, forget persuasion – think pre-suasion.

In a 25 year career in branding Danny has worked on projects for many global brands including: Barclaycard, BMW, Coca Cola, Credit Suisse, Manchester United, Mazda, MINI, Nissan, Universal, Clarks Shoes, and more.

Yet Danny felt unfulfilled working as part of a big-budget marketing machine, and was drawn to solving a greater challenge: how do you build a successful brand when money and resources are in short supply?

Danny now concentrates on helping small businesses with underdog brands punch above their weight, proving that you don’t need huge financial investment to build a powerful, authentic brand that attracts premium clients.

Danny is a qualified member of the Design Business Association (DBA).
