You finally get the meeting with the president. What happens at that meeting will determine whether the opportunity dies, delays or moves forward. How does one talk to a president? How do you find problems you can solve that are compelling to him? What do you do when the call is not going well or the conversation stalls? How do you introduce your fee structure and get buy in from the president? How do you avoid think-it-overs and we will get back to you’s?

In this dinner session, Carl Harvey, sales development specialist, will answer these questions by engaging in a live role play with Michael Ehrlich, president of Integrated Security Inc., and a client of Carl Harvey. You will observe how he conducts  an actual sales call and  the questions he asks. Carl, at each stage, will also deconstruct the call so you can understand the pathway and progression a successful call should take.

His book, What’s Stopping You? Building the confidence you need to succeed in sales, is the first book to integrate the science of psychology and the art of selling to help those who sell overcome the single greatest obstacle to their success and what prevents them from consistently and effectively cold-calling, qualifying and closing: their self-doubt and fear of failure.
