Turn your regrets into the fuel you need to succeed
We all have regrets, but what separates the champions from those who are lost is how we cope with that regret and move forward through our struggles. There are a lot of reasons we commit to decisions that we later regret, but almost all of them can be reconciled in some shape. It takes a little honest grit and determination, though, and most of all it takes an unflinching willingness to do what’s right for yourself.
Have you ever been so afraid of failing at something that you decided not to try it at all? Or has a fear of failure meant that, subconsciously, you undermined your own efforts to avoid the possibility of a larger failure?
Many of us have probably experienced this at one time or another. The fear of failing can be immobilizing – it can cause us to do nothing, and therefore resist moving forward. But when we allow fear to stop our forward progress in life, we're likely to miss some great opportunities along the way.
In thiswebinar, we'll examine fear of failure: what it means, what causes it, and how to overcome it to enjoy true success in work, and in life.

One of the hardest elements of the sales process is 'the close'.
Why is that?
Now, provided you’ve followed the correct process, therefore practically your sound, it can only be your emotions stopping you:
Is it the anticipation of the deal? You’ve built the proposal, you’ve chased the client for months, you’ve researched them like you were Columbo and now the excitement of landing them is palpable.
Is it the pressure of missing out? The boss has already told you that this is big, you know this is big, in fact, it's the biggest deal you’ve ever been involved with (Could be financially, emotionally or practically).
Or is it personal? Is it the fear of rejection, the fear of not being wanted, the fear that after all this time “You’re still not good enough for them?”
Let’s ask those questions and reveal some answers which could support you and your teams moving forward.
1. Provided you’ve followed the correct sales process, it’s never no, it’s not enough information or not today.
2. No isn’t a bad word, it’s telling you, to be better!
3. If it is a no, ask yourself “Are they the right client for me?”
4. When it’s a “no”, don’t be afraid to ask why.
5. Don’t be afraid to you, trust your process, trust yourself and trust your gut!
75% of UK business people have a LinkedIn profile, but few prepare it properly for that potential client visit. With over 10 million UK members using LinkedIn every day, it must be worth investing some time in ensuring that your profile makes that all-important good first impression.

We will demonstrate how to build a profile that will impress visitors and create a hunger to learn more about you and your services.
5 Key takeaways:
1.The sheer scale of the opportunity offered by LinkedIn
2.That by using this most underestimated sales aid properly, you will become one of the 1% who do!
3.The power of a direct message
4.The importance of good, mixed content
5. That people buy people, so do your profile justice

Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).
I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?

Leading yourself or others, it doesn’t matter. At the end of each day, we are all looking for meaning and purpose for what and why we get out of bed every morning.
It's an important aspect that impacts our daily lives.
As a business and leader, you play an instrumental role in helping your employees finding purpose, and it should start with your business being 'purpose-driven' instead on 'product/solution' driven.
Many employees feel that they are just working for a paycheck and aren’t contributing to the greater good of society.
Without a sense of purpose, it’s difficult for employees to connect with their work and their company. Working with a sense of purpose boosts employee motivation, productivity, morale, and overall job satisfaction.
- What is purpose or meaning?
- How do I find it?
- How can I help others to find it?
- Why should I care?
Modern product marketing strategies serve to drive revenue, customer satisfaction, and retention. The days of simply packaging features into messaging and content are over. Product marketing must now enable all customer-facing teams to have effective customer conversations that will drive strategic growth. Failing to do so renders the rest of your corporate strategy meaningless.
With the stakes higher than ever before, how can you turn your enablement strategy into action?
In this keynote, Highspot CEO Robert Wahbe shares the three new pillars of product marketing success:
–Enable your entire company to uplift the customer experience
–Guide your teams and your partners to master what to know, what to say, and what to show at scale
–Put analytics to work so your metrics matter in driving business decisions
Now is the time to enable your company to master the customer conversation.
Sales enablement is big. Where the category goes will be huge. We see enablement expanding to help at least 50 million people across sales, marketing, services, and support roles collaborate and deliver on their customer experience initiatives. Enablement technology, practices, and teams will unify everyone who interacts with the customer as holistic customer experience defines business success today and tomorrow.
Organizations with a strong sales onboarding program are more than 15x more likely to have reps who generate pipeline faster. Sales reps who have standout onboarding experiences are not only more productive sooner but obtain win and quota attainment rates that are higher than that of their counterparts that did not enjoy an effective onboarding program. Sales leaders looking to maximize productivity and effectiveness in new sales reps must first enable them with a robust sales onboarding program.
Organizations with established onboarding processes experience 54% greater new hire productivity. Sales reps who have a great onboarding experience are not only more productive sooner, but obtain win and attainment rates that are higher than that of their counterparts that did not enjoy a robust onboarding program. If reps are going to stay ahead of the curve, they must have an effective onboarding experience first.
Some sales philosophies will tell you that - if you follow a simple formula – customers will never interrupt your presentation with an objection.
But that’s just nonsense.
And - contrary to popular belief - prospects aren’t sitting in darkened rooms trying to invent new fiendish ways to stop you from selling your stuff.
If people regularly tell you;
• that you’re too expensive - or
• that they’re already happy with their current supplier – or
• they’ve had problems with your company in the past - or
• your lead time is too long
Then you need to jump on to this webinar so that I can share with you how to overcome every single objection that you’ll ever hear.
Everyone who attends will walk away with this tool box of sales gold;
• How to overcome every genuine sales objection – including those based on price
• The names of the four headline objection types and the silver bullet that takes each one of them down
• The three reasons that salespeople fail to overcome the most difficult customer objections – and what to do about them
