Build the Foundations for Business Success

You’ve probably already had an energetic speaker come into your company or association. Or you hired a well-known name. They showed you – and you’ve tried – all the gimmicks. But you get the same results once the sales team heads back into the office.

You don’t need more hype and hoopla. What your team really needs is good content. Content that works well, and works fast.

Like sales training on technology that will actually help you be more productive. Or learning modern selling techniques that helps your sales team fill their pipeline. Or helping your leaders lead more effectively.

Although Phil delivers a motivating, energetic keynote that captivates the audience, he also knows how to get people to take action when they get back to their desks, implementing new sales techniques, leadership strategies and cutting-edge technologies that lead to lasting results.

The Art (and Science) of Referrals: Stop cold calling and start earning more referrals and warm introductions

Ideal audience: Sales reps and business owners who have established relationships or who want to build a referral based business

Developing a referral-based business may seem challenging, but with the right mindset and techniques, it can be the most rewarding strategy to gain new clients and elevate your business. It’s about leveraging your existing relationships, not as mere sales prospects, but as a network of opportunity that extends far beyond the immediate connection. This approach not only nurtures and respects your relationships but also invites an environment of mutual support and business growth. If you’re a sales rep or a business owner aiming to cultivate a referral-based business, understanding the art and science behind referrals is crucial. Warm introductions can be more impactful than any cold call could ever hope to be, and they can propel your business forward in ways you may not have previously thought possible.

Phil Gerbyshak’s “The Art and Science of Referrals” offers a deep dive into the world of referrals, demonstrating how they are not just an aspect of good business but a craft to be honed. His approach is rooted in the belief that effective networking isn’t just about expanding your contact list; it’s about creating meaningful connections. The key lies in understanding the value that you offer and the value that others can bring. By developing a sincere interest in your contacts and their needs, you can begin to see how your services can genuinely assist them. This process fosters trust and can potentially unlock a vast network of referrals.

Pocket Productivity: Supercharge your productivity with the latest tools, tactics and techniques

In today’s fast-paced world, maximizing productivity is critical to the success of your business or personal life. One of the most influential productivity-enhancing tools lies right in your pocket: your smartphone. The technological power of these small devices is nothing short of astounding – it’s often pointed out that they possess more computational capability than was needed to send a man to the moon. But, the power of this technology means little if it is not leveraged properly. Too often, these devices are reduced to mere distractions or, at best, expensive paperweights due to a lack of understanding on how to optimally utilize their functions.

Yet, the key to unlocking your pocket’s productivity potential is not necessarily chasing after the latest and greatest tech developments. Instead, it’s about strategically using the tools you already have. The key lies in recognizing that the most up-to-date device does not necessarily equate to the most productive one. Every update or new piece of technology comes with a learning curve and a time cost, often leading to the paradoxical result of technology designed to increase productivity actually reducing it. Rather than becoming a servant to your device, learning to harness its power can transform you into its master. This can lead to not only personal growth but also increased profitability and efficiency for your business.

Pocket productivity is a tactic that can help you turn your business around. When you harness the power of the tools at your disposal, you allow yourself to focus on running your business rather than having it run you. The key is to be aware of the range of productivity apps, organization tools, and communication platforms available. Exploring these can enable you to streamline operations, improve organization, and increase communication within your team. This doesn’t mean you should download every app that promises efficiency, but rather, select the ones that best align with your work style and business needs. With the right approach, you can transform your pocket-sized device into your most valuable asset, enhancing your role as a key player in your business team.
