The Sales Development Bootcamp is designed for:

  • Sales Development Reps (SDR’s)
  • Business Development Reps (BDR’s)
  • Salespeople who prospect.
  • Sales or Marketing leaders who want to build an optimized approach to generating, qualifying and following up on sales leads.

It is not another sales process. It is about the details of leading these initial sales conversations.

It is not technique-only. It is an opportunity to update your mental map; questioning and changing fundamental beliefs about engaging in the early phase of the buyer’s journey.

It is not theory. It is rooted in a novel level of research that breaks through sales myths and provides proven sales development tactics you can walk out and use the next day.

Most sales training is endured and forgotten. It’s not that salespeople don’t want new sales strategies, but if the message is stale and generic, no one listens.

In the Sales Development Bootcamp there is no fluff – just fast, effective sales training. The bootcamp is an interactive two-day workshop that provides a safe learning laboratory where you can explore new concepts and tactics.

"When I first heard about this program, I was a little jaded. After 90 days in their territories, 80% of these new reps are now performing at or above quota, compared to 20% at the same point last year. Our business has grown so much that we hired 12 new reps… We really believe in this program. "

-Mike Hewitt

"The training that we received in Ottawa in January was amazing. I personally, have never had so much fun making cold calls. The techniques & examples that you shared have transformed my initial contacts with Fortune 1000 companies that I am calling. I am having a blast! I am identifying real prospects, and by not wasting their time (and my companies time), I am shortening the sales process, and seeing more success."

-Greg Taylor

“It has only been one month since our training, but already I have drastically increased my productivity. Through the use of my new skills I have been able to build better, stronger relationships with my prospects and customers on the phone, as well as better articulate their needs. I cannot say enough how helpful that short time with you has been, especially making the prospecting part work like it never has before."

-Grant Wiesner

The system is being adopted by a number of our customers - we feel it is a tremendous competitive weapon!! Jackie and I are absolutely shell shocked by how effectively you motivated our troops to get on the phone and prospect!"
