"...fantastic takeaways, insights and ideas to drive PreSales excellence"

We've been running PreSales skills workshops, keynotes and coaching through my company, Winning Skills, since 2015. After a 30+ year PreSales career, I wanted to give something back to the craft and profession I love.

Our clients include big names like Adobe, Deloitte, Informatica, SurveyMonkey and SAP and many, many smaller to medium-sized and up-and-coming Technology companies.

Right now, PreSales Leaders are being challenged with doing more with less, refocusing on 'Ruthlessly efficient Discovery', becoming more effective in the sales cycle, scaling and accelerating everything; enablement, onboarding, influencing, the demand for more and earlier Demos, the move to media creation, especially video; increased demand from Customer Success, BDRs, Marketing, Partner Management; the list goes, on and on. It's really not easy.

Technology companies come to us because they want both the personal touch and content that can be customised for them. They want their trainer and workshop facilitator to be the content author, not a contract facilitator; they want someone who has a reputation, credibility, authenticity, experience and a voice in the PreSales profession, someone recognised as a thought leader and someone both your experienced and new team members will trust.
