How to sell your value and maximise profits (WORKSHOP)

If you're thinking that the best negotiators are born with given talent, think again! In reality, what allows business owners to generate high levels of profit is the fact that they always stick to one ‘winning framework’ and rarely drift away from it.
In this talk, you will learn 3 of the ‘no brainer’ strategies that will mean that you can fo the following:
- Explain the value that your product gives the customer in the clearest and most understandable way possible.
- Walk into every sales meeting with absolute ‘sureness’ and total confidence that you will clinch the sale.
- Generate the all important ‘Tell me more’ response from the potential client - every single time.
You'll also get to practice the methods with other startup founders and use these tools in your next meetings!
