Five Critical Success Factors for Business Growth and Profitability

A group of business owners experience great financial success.  At the same time, many struggle to eek out a living. Most are somewhere in between, recognizing a need for business growth  but need a road map to follow.

In this session, noted author and Christine Corelli will share the results extensive research of your industry she conducts prior to your program and real-world experience. She will identify the five critical success factors that drive business growth, help you to evaluate your performance in each area, and provide you actionable items that will help you to create a high performance business and culture that will impact your bottom line.

Wake Up and Smell the Competition – TOPIC: Sales Training
A Sales Motivation Keynote or Training Program Customized for Your Group

Forget tough! Today’s competition is fierce!

BOSSMarket forces, consolidation, and tough customers have caused us to apply a more advanced approach to sales, marketing, and conducting business. Value-added selling, competitive excellence and superior sales skills are key.

Based on the popular book of the same title, (now in it’s fifth printing!) this hard-hitting, “no-holds barred” sales training program will identify how top sales producers are meeting and exceeding their goals in today’s challenging business climate, and why a sales team must be given full support by the entire organization.

To Ensure Maximum Results and Benefits Will Be Achieved:

Prior to your program Christine sends questionnaires to your sales team to obtain insight, and identify their specific challenges. Then, she will design your sales training program. In this manner, your team will not have a generic sales program, but one that covers skills most needed.

The Art and Science of Influencing People – TOPIC: Communication Skills
Communication Skills for Leaders, Sales Pros and Professionals on All Levels

Business experts have stated that over 85% of your overall career success is in direct proportion to your ability to communicate. Christine disagrees. In her training program she states, “I believe 85% of business and personal success is in direct proportion to your ability to communicate.

This program provides real-world techniques on the art and science of influencing people. You will learn the powerful words and phrases to apply in different situations that will make a big difference in your ability to influence and impress people. You will learn communication techniques to get your team to follow your lead, and improve your ability to build stronger relationships with customers, employees, coworkers, and even the people in your personal life. You’ll not only learn the basics on this topic but many of the finer points Christine has learned during her successful career as a professional speaker, author, and advisor to executives, business owners, and managers.

This program can be presented in break-out session or seminar, or training format. It can also be adapted as a public speaking skills program.

Transform Your Culture for High Performance – TOPIC: Sales- Service Excellence Culture
Driving Sales and Service
BOSSGetting customers is one thing. Keeping them is another. Between the challenges of escalating competition and demanding customers, if you don’t excel in sales and every aspect of the customer experience, they will take their buying power elsewhere. It’s that simple.

Creating a Sales-Service Excellence Culture should be a major strategic initiative in your company. Christine will provide valuable insight and share ideas from organizations known for outstanding sales and service cultures. You will learn how to make accountability, service excellence, and teamwork permeate your organization and a step-by-step process to get you there. Imagine the explosive power of creating superior sales people and a workforce of “brand ambassadors who will help you to increase sales and establish higher levels of customer loyalty. Think how much more productive and profitable your business will become!

This program can be presented in keynote, seminar, or hands-on workshop format. You will obtain a blueprint on how to create a dynamic sales-oriented and customer-focused company.

REELING IN CUSTOMERS AT A TRADE SHOW BY SELLING SMARTER
Trade Show Sales Success

Trade show sales are critical to your success. Exhibiting in your industry trade show is one of the best marketing tactics to physically obtain access to potential and existing customers. It provides excellent opportunities for face to face interactions, forming strategic alliances, demonstrating products, and even writing orders.  If you have the right creative touch, it can even generate instant brand awareness.

On the other hand, exhibiting in a trade show can give you a mediocre ROI if you don’t know how to create and execute a smart pre-show marketing and advertising strategy that is superior to any competitor. You also need to excel in trade show sales.

Selling on the trade show floor is very different than in the field and requires specific techniques. This program will identify those techniques and provide you with skills that give you the results you want – increased sales, higher commission checks and a significant impact in your bottom line.


Trade Show Marketing and Advertising Strategies

Christine Corelli holds over twenty year’s experience in the trade show arena. She will provide you with information and ideas on what works and what doesn’t at a trade show. You will learn highly effective trade show selling techniques that can make all the difference between success or failure in your trade show endeavors.

Managing and Motivating Millennials – What Makes Them Tick?

There are well over 83 million Millennials in the U.S. alone. This age group, also known as Gen Y, and born between 1982 and 2000 are not only “Digital Addicts” but they are now the most influential generation in the marketplace and workplace.  They have outnumbered Baby-Boomers, are far more diverse than any other generation, and have strong opinions on just about everything.

In the workplace, managing and motivating them can be a real challenge for even the most experienced managers. Many are perplexed when it comes to relating to them and keeping them happy. This is due to the fact that they think, communicate, and work differently than other generations. They also have different attitudes about their jobs, money, and lifestyles.

  • How do you help them to excel in their leadership role and help them to relate to other generations?
