What others say about Sue

Amanda Gome, Publisher of BRW, SmartInvestor, Asset at Fairfax Media and former CEO of Private Media (www.smartcompany.com.au, www.crikey.com.au, www.startupsmart.com.au and other web publications):

"I first approached Sue Barrett to write for SmartCompany when it launched in February 2007. I approached her for several reasons. Firstly she had a unique approach to selling. She looked beyond the quick sell to explain to people how to build sustainable and profitable relationships. Secondly she was a great presenter. Many sales people on the circuit turn people off with a very pushy, gimmicky approach and Sue presents as highly intelligent, caring, ethical and extremely positive. Thirdly I knew she got results because I knew clients who had used her including my own sister!

I would always say when starting a writer that we don't know how many columns they have in them: whether one, six or they can last the distance. From our experience a new writer can write one column and find it was very hard work so they don't continue. Then others have nothing else to say after the sixth column and start to repeat themselves. But Sue, week after week, serves up terrific, intelligent copy that is thoughtful, insightful and extremely helpful for our readers. She is also very professional and adheres to deadlines.She is been part of the reason SmartCompany is so successful."

Wayne Besant, former Head Small to Medium Business (NZ)
Barrett has provided sales training and coaching around the Earning What You Are Worth program to some 85 frontline Managers with Small to Medium Business (SMB) in New Zealand.  The program has assisted our business develop a sales call program which has effectively lifted our business performnce around new customer growth.  Sue's style and personal commitment to our business has made a very positive impact on our business and greatly enhanced the skills of our Relationship management team. The program has effectively been around change management.  A direct focus on call reluctance, call programs, prospecting, seeking referrals are all necessary components for any business that has a sales culture.  Sue has directly influenced this development within SMB.  I would recommend Earning What You Are Worth to any business wanting to develop a sustainable sales culture within their salesforce
