Description

Today's Story Teller is Steve Knapp

The Sales Mindset Coach

Story Title: Where Did my Purpose Come From?

Steve started as greengrocer in East London, buying from Covent Garden wholesale market. Then he had to dress the shop and sell the goods on the same day because they were perishable. Steve walked the line between dodgy and honest. Could have become a version of Del Boy!

But later he worked for Shell, one of the biggest companies in the world. He was there for 23 years and worked as a General Manager selling globally!

The first chapter in the book he's writing shows how from an early stage he was buying and selling in the purest sense. From an early age, Steve was captivated by the immediacy. The challenge of cold calling, led him to ask, how do you build trust?

Sales is a process and so being a process means there's no fear. The valuable part is why he offers this service to small businesses and where his motivation comes from. Steve is convinced "sales" is not a dirty word.

His chosen path brings energy and enthusiasm - steered by making it fun for people to listen to - engagement. People fixate on selling and forget to enjoy what they are doing.

The Question I have for the Telling Stories Group

How can my story help you subscribe to my philosophy of sales?

Please register from this page. There is a fee of £5 cash on the door.


Are you a coach, consultant or freelance, who wants to promote their business and take their practice to a new place?

Do you love stories and long to find your own story that gives voice to your business?

Great stories are true because they have integrity, they make a promise (that must be met), they are subtle and yet make a rapid first impression, they appeal to our senses and match a particular worldview.

So, finding a story that will promote your business is not easy. But it can be easier if you share your search with a dynamic group of business-owners.

This self-help group will listen to and provide feedback for business stories and help each other market their business through stories.

Join us at Holiday Inn Express on 2nd and 4th Thursdays to find out:

  • How to tell your story in a fresh and compelling way
  • How to use your story to market your business and become better known
  • How to adapt your story in new and innovative ways.

We do more than tell stories. We share ideas about how to tell stories so they are really effective. Each month, one member of the group shares their story and together we listen, take note and work out how the story can be improved. Everyone learns from this experience and improves their story telling. We cover a range of business applications and media for telling your stories.

A fee of £5 on the door covers my overheads, including the story-teller's lunch. Please be prepared to purchase lunch at The Rude Shipyard. Please inform me in advance if you require disabled access.
