Helping people and businesses sell better

Please ask yourself:

  • Do you want more than just a motivational 'pep talk'?
  • Does your conference need outside inspiration and input?
  • Does your team need a refresher to keep them on track?
  • Are you looking for a fresh, honest perspective on selling?

Sue Barrett has a unique way of getting to the heart of the matter- she combines extensive knowledge, research, insight, and practical experience with a deep sense of compassion for all people to bring forth a more enlightened way of thinking and participating in the world. This makes her stand out from the usual crowd of existing business speakers. She believes that everyone lives by selling something and that all of us, no matter our background, can achieve excellence through purposeful action. Her ability to distill complex ideas and relate them to life's everyday challenges and opportunities has audience members leaving with a stronger understanding of 'self' and how they can begin to achieve excellence through purposeful action.

Sue is best known for her work in illuminating and defining the elusive qualities that make for highly successful sales people. She is the lead sales writer for Smartcompany since February 2007. She launched her own business in 1995 after holding senior positions with a leading consultancy and recruitment company. Sue practices as a business advisor, public speaking, consultant, facilitator/trainer, coach and writer.

A Semi-Government organisation
Our team worked closely with Barrett's at a time when the market place in which we operate had become increasingly competitive, and as a result our sales team could no longer rely on our strong brand and passive referrals for new business. Leading up to the program our entire sales team completed an assessment to gauge sales prospecting fitness, with the team provided with individualised reports during the program to illustrate suggested strengths and potential weaknesses highlighting areas for development. This included a discussion on mindset around the sales process.Our three day course was introduced to our Regional General Managers on the first day with some specialised coaching training so that we could follow up one-on-one with the sales team once the program was completed. To enable this we were armed with practical tools provided by Barrett's to assist this coaching process, to ensure we could respond to the needs of each member of our sales team. The program itself illustrated the changes that had taken place in the sales process over time, and provided information and action plans as to developing an increasingly successful sales environment within our organisation. We looked at the overall prospecting process including goal setting, lead generation and review.Prior to our work with Barrett's the sales team had accepted a huge challenge to talk to 1000 new prospects over a short timeframe, and initially we heard any number of barriers and excuses as to why this would not be possible, however with the practical lessons gained from Sue, our 25-strong sales team put into practice the learnings from the course, and with the confidence gained we successfully hit the target, with time to spare. Working with a limited timeframe the sales team were able to focus their energy on the prospecting process, and successfully generated a pipeline of enquiries to follow up over the following period.This great result has provided a great deal of motivation for the sales team, and we are confidently looking forward to a productive prospecting future. Thanks Sue and the team at Barrett's for your support.
