Blog Carnival: The Impact of Public Speaking on Top Sales Performance

Over the last few weeks I’ve been engaged in discussions with a number of talented and experienced sales professionals. Our conversations have focused on various aspects of the sales process including: establishing credibility, understanding customer needs, reviewing various options and recommending a solution. Everyone was in agreement about one thing. No matter where you are in the sales process, strong communication skills including exceptional presentation skills are critical for success.

DeFinis Communications supports sales professionals with many programs in our core curriculum especially Recharge! Boost Your Sales Performance. I have always loved working with salespeople in this program because they are eager to embrace new ideas about presenting.
