About the Guest: John has experience with Black & Decker, Xerox, Thrive Network, Basho Technologies, The Jack Welch Management Institute, Kensei Partners, and now JBarrows. With experience in all of these different fields, he has the knowledge of a world-class trainer. John believes that although sales is the #1 profession in the world, there is not adequate teaching available. His ‘12 Guiding Principles to Sales Success’ outline exactly how to thrive in a sales career and can be a resource for anyone wishing to become more educated in sales.
John’s extensive knowledge has been formed from holding every position in sales including inside, outside/field, channel, executive management and ownership. He helps sales professionals in companies like Google, Salesforce, Okta, Box, and LinkedIn learn new tips and tricks to become more successful in their sales positions. He is still active in sales and has learned what works and doesn’t work when closing.
John’s main goal is to improve the overall education and quality of sales by sharing ideas and techniques that work. He encourages engagement with the customer to boost revenue and show the customer that you care. In his opinion, success comes from those who are able to transfer their enthusiasm to their customer.
