What have I learned on this 20 year journey that I can pass on to you?


Only a small % of deals ever close

It’s a fact of life, only a small % of projects make it – for 2 reasons:

1. You didn’t do enough preparation to convince them

2. 97% of the time it’s because of things that are completely outside of your control:

  • the need goes away
  • the project gets postponed
  • life gets in the way
  • money needs to be spent elsewhere
  • the dog ate their homework

The trick is to make sure you’re well prepared if there’s a deal to be had.

When you work with me it’s about concentrating your resources on making sure that if there’s a deal to be had …… you’re in with the best chance.
