Our Sales Manager, Patrick, recently wrote a guest post for the popular sales blog Duct Tape Selling about how to succeed onstage during any kind of presentation, whether you’re giving a sales pitch or a keynote speech. The full post is reproduced below.
How you perform in the fleeting moments when you have the platform to speak in front of others is pivotal to your chances of success. This is true for every industry, but for anyone in sales, it’s at the very heart of the experience. Getting on stage in front of a crowd of potential customers, contacts, and influencers is the best way to build a reputation and become a credible, respected authority. But for some, it can be a bearpit where bad first impressions are left ingrained in the minds of unforgiving audiences.
